At this time last year, for a month approaching the alarm state, most of us were restricted to homes, leaving only necessities, and sticking to the screen, without having to stop thinking about the coronavirus, saturating the hospital’s ICU and hospital. death toll. For streaming media platforms, this is a moment of tremendous growth. By 2020, streaming media platforms have ended their year of absolute dedication.
The provision of new and attractive content from platforms such as Netflix, HBO, Movistar + Ø Amazon Prime Video On the surface, it is growing every week, like an uninterrupted supply of materials from a seemingly bottomless sack.
When the Generalist TV Network was forced to change its way of producing live shows in real time (TV via video calls!), and daily production of novels saw their filming interrupted, the catalog refrigerator on the streaming platform and his millions of dollars The refrigerator is well-stocked. U.S. dollar transactions have been allowed. Unlimited barns seem to guarantee supply.
However, this situation seems to show signs of exhaustion. By 2020, the pandemic has stopped filming and production worldwide for a few months.Moreover, when the project resumes, taking sanitary measures to avoid the spread of the covid-19 virus means Longer, bulky, and therefore expensive buds.
The impact of this specific cut and the continued slowdown in audiovisual production Is now arriving at the platform, It used to bombard its subscribers with a lot of news (and increase earnings forecasts for shareholders).
The quotation was so high that the impact was not noticed at all. However, it exists.As a reporter Kasey Moore (from @whatonnetflix), Netflix will be added to its catalog in April this year Less than half of last year’s title Over the same period: 40 to 83.
When the data expands to the first season, According to Moore’s data, it can be seen that the decline in the material incorporation rate dropped rapidly last year. There will be 768 in 2019, 685 in 2020, and 454 in 2021.
These numbers are dizzying and it is understandable that in direct experience, the number of companies has not been so drastically reduced (in an ecosystem that is now saturated with other platforms, this situation is much less). But if we focus on the strong premiere of Netflix original works, things will change.
Last year, so far, the platform has launched the third phase Sabrina’s icy adventures, second season Sex education, Published Messiah with Locke and the key, second season Narcos: Mexico, The third Ozark The third Elite And the fourth Money robbery.
So far this year, its main bet is on titles that have been resolved during the pandemic or rather advanced titles: Bridgetown (Released in December), Destination: Winx Legend, third episode Cobra Kai, Animation series Opposite the sun The last few episodes I saved from Sabrina’s cold adventure with Two premieres carefully rationed: The series Lupin with Sky red, The first season is divided into two.
However, in the next few weeks, powerful premieres such as the Spanish series are coming. Innocent Adaptation of Fantasy Literature Shadows and bones And (already in May) superhero series Jupiter’s legacy, This is his firm bet against Marvel and the DC Universe. This provides support for those who believe that the Red N platform will concentrate most of its premiere films in 2021 in the second half of the year, hoping that the pandemic will dissipate, so that the rhythm of production and shooting will resume in 2022.
Despite everything, Netflix may be the platform that hasn’t noticed the impact of the interruption of shooting the least. Its (increasingly questioned) philosophy of publishing throughout the season helps to predict and prepare material for more than a year from now, What may be more worrying in 2022 is If we have not achieved significant improvement in the health crisis through vaccination campaigns.
How do you collect items from it Bloomberg Other platforms have paid more attention to the lack of news.Such as this year hyperbaric Except for experiments, there are almost no services provided to subscribers Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Criticized documentary Allen v Farrow Or youth series Produce + ions; Yes, it had its premiere in the United States Godzilla vs. Kong Simultaneously with the cinema.He plans to hold two major premieres in April: miniseries Eastown’s mare, with Kate Winslet; And a wonderful adventure Never.
Nothing compares News grid processed by HBO in the first quarter of 2020: Terrorist attacks Visitor (Released in December), the second season New pope The third Western world Or miniseries Conspiracy against America, Mrs. America with The other side of the truth. Of course, all these works were produced and shot in 2019.
Amazon Prime Video In similar situations, resort to buying Movies from other studios (King Zamunda) Supplement such as 3 ways Ø Boarding school: Las Cumbres. Last year, they had Stepping stone, hunter Ø Cycle legend And other acquisitions in specific markets, such as Star Trek: Picard Ø American gods in Spain.
