Netflix Flexes its Streaming Muscle

Netflix’s Tudum global virtual fan event not only gave fans a preview of upcoming streaming shows and movies, but sends a message to Disney, Warner, Amazon, and others that it plans to spend what it will take to stay on top for the foreseeable future.

Netflix Tudum 2021-09-25

Netflix held a worldwide virtual event on September 25, 2021, on YouTube, Twitter, and TikTok promoting its upcoming 2021 and 2022 original content. 

With large fan conventions still scarce due to COVID, some studios have decided to hold their own virtual fan events. Noting the success of DC Fandome in 2020, Netflix has taken to virtual space to generate buzz for its service and content with Tudum.

NOTE: Tudum stands for the sound that is associated with Netflix Logo that appears when you access Netflix content. 

The Power of Netflix

The importance of the Netflix Tudum event cannot be understated. Consider that Netflix not only has the largest number of subscribers (over 200 million) than any other streaming service (the next closest is Amazon Prime with slightly under 200 million) but collects over 10 billion dollars a month in subscription fees. 

In recent years, Netflix has used that money to produce a lot of original content. In fact, they are producing so much, that they are currently adding new original content (either a movie or show) on a weekly basis. Some weeks they launch more than one new content entry. 

In addition to quantity, Netflix has also racked up a number of Oscars and Emmys for its original movies and shows. 

To sum it up, Netflix is right up there with Disney as one of the largest entertainment companies in the World.

What’s also interesting about Netflix is that the company is reportedly sniffing around the Jersey Shore looking for a 300+ acre piece of land to build a new studio outside of New York.

Ian White (Ecoustics Editor-in-Chief) has reported recently on news that studio management have toured Ft. Monmouth which is largely vacant after the base closed during the Bush Administration.

“I run through this vacant piece of land twice a week and people would be thrilled to see a section of the property become Netflix East,” remarked White who lives less than 2 miles from the proposed site.

The rumors floating around Long Branch, Eatontown, Tinton Falls, and Little Silver are that Netflix likes the location which is 60 minutes from NYC, the possible tax abatement on the property, and the recent surge in housing in the area.

    My favorite Netflix move: Cancelling great shows. Yah…I won’t get invested in characters anymore only to have the rug pulled out from under me.

      Starting with the “Punisher.”

      I’m still really angry about that one. Netflix has dropped the ball on some very good shows.
