Netflix Is Working On Live Streaming Capabilities

According to news sources, Netflix is trying to do a live broadcast of its shows. This will help in broadcasting the upcoming slate of unscripted programming and comedy specials. Netflix said that the feature was in its early phases of development.

Netflix may use this new technology to host live voting sessions for competitive programs. This will be for shows such as the upcoming Dance reality show. Also, it will help to broadcast sets from its annual festival, among other cases. A team inside the corporation is  in “preliminary” phases of creating the technology. Yet, there is currently no release timetable for the technology.

“Not everyone will agree with or like everything about our service…  Instead of censoring artists or voices, we let users determine what they like”. The firm claims in the post. “

The company had spent the last 18 months addressing cultural concerns with workers. This is as per Netflix’s sources. The firm claims that they have revised the standards. This will help workers determine if Netflix is the perfect company for them.

The upgrade follows staff dissatisfaction over Netflix’s most recent Dave Chappelle comedy special. Many inside the organization attacked the comedian for transphobia. A worker walkout resulted from Netflix’s response to the event. It included the decision to dismiss an employee. He reportedly divulged confidential information about the program.
