Netflix Prefers to Overspend on Content

NFLX SPOTIFY

Adam Levy, The Motley FoolMotley FoolDecember 6, 2018, 2:00 PM GMT. In case you missed it, Saturday Night Live recently mocked Netflix's (NASDAQ: NFLX) spendthrift manner, joking that the company is "making every show in the world." Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos took the jokes in stride at a recent investor conference, pointing out that Netflix is buying so much content because it's not restricted by the same constraints of a traditional television network. In other words, he'd rather err on the side of too much content versus too little. How Netflix's content creates value. Additionally, award-winning content can also attract better talent to create new content for Netflix, which may have a broader appeal. For example, the company is set to release films from Martin Scorcese and Michael Bay next year and signed Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy to extended contracts thanks, in part, to its growing presence at award ceremonies.

Netflix Is Getting Serious About This Massive Opportunity

NFLX

The streaming giant's international subscriber numbers have grown by leaps and bounds in recent quarters, enabling it to offset the slowdown in the U.S. market. But despite the impressive increase in the company's international subscriber count, it still has a lot of room to grow its business in markets such as the Asia-Pacific region. Gregory Peters, the chief product officer at Netflix, said that the company is looking to "experiment with other pricing models -- not only for India, but around the world -- that allow us to sort of broaden access, by providing a pricing tier that sits below our current lowest tier." Instead, it's expected to add a fourth pricing tier that will cut down on more features but help it attract new users into the ecosystem. If implemented, this would be a smart strategy on Netflix's part; the company would be better-equipped to cut its teeth in a market such as the Asia-Pacific region, which seems to be the most plausible place to test its lower-priced plan. Now, it's a good thing that Netflix is focused on building more content by investing in over 100 film and television projects across markets such as India, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan. But it needs to back itself up with more accessible pricing plans to bring more users into its fold, which is probably why it's contemplating adding another pricing tier to compete more effectively in these markets.

NFLX

Reportedly, the company will order original shows from the continent in 2019.In Africa, the streaming giant has already forayed into Nigeria, the world’s second-biggest movie industry by volume, after purchasing worldwide rights to Lionheart. Netflix’s New Content Distribution Strategy to Aid GrowthIn a unique move, Netflix will release three high profile films — Roma, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Bird Box in a few theaters in the Unites States and overseas, ahead of their release on the streaming platform, per Reuters.This comes after major directors, exhibitors and others reportedly expressed concerns over how their content is made available only on small screens. We expect Netflix’s new strategy to win projects that require theatrical releases, which may not see enough success on small screen.Additionally, theatrical releases are expected to boost the company’s merchandising business aimed at promoting consumer products related to its popular titles. Further, Apple AAPL is likely to launch a low-cost streaming TV dongle to support its upcoming streaming service to sell a standalone subscription for its original content.We believe Netflix’s strategy to focus both on content and distribution techniques may help it strengthen its global subscriber base amid stiff competition.Netflix currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
