  • On April 19, Netflix launched all 13 episodes of Hemlock Grove, a horror thriller from Eli Roth.  In Netflix’s quarterly report they stated “We’re very pleased with its early performance. Hemlock Grove was viewed by more members globally in its first weekend than was House of Cards and has been a particular hit among young adults.” This caused Netflix stocks to rise very heavily.  Putting Netflix stock at a high it had not seen in sometime since the huge drop after the whole quickster debacle a few years ago. So far more people have watched the new supernatural show than the political drama House of Cards.  Hemlock Grove along with House of Cards, clearly shows the company’s desire to be a media player similar to HBO and Showtime. It appears that Netflix’s original content strategy is paying off, with more than 3 million new subscribers signing up last quarter. That brings Netflix’s total membership to more than 36 million members. Netflix’s next original content offering is a new season of the cult comedy TV show Arrested Development. All 15 episodes of that series will be available on May 26.  Netflix original programming will also add ‘Orange is the New Black’ on July 11th.

    House Of Cards Success For Netflix

    Netflix’s second original series House Of Cards which is based on a novel by Michael Dobbs and stars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara is doing great for Netflix.  Netflix took a big gamble spending over 100,000,000 dollars to buy the series and make it a Netflix original series.  Netflix has often times said to be a major player with HBO, Cinemax and Starz they needed original content. 86% Of Netflix Users Say ‘House of Cards’ makes them less likely to cancel their subscription.  Numbers have shown 36% percent called the series “exceptional,” while 43% deemed it “good.” Moreover 1 in every 10 users has watched an episode making House Of Cards the most watched show on Netflix. Unlike a traditional network, Netflix released all 13 episodes of House of Cards’ first season at once, so customers can stream them on their own schedule. With DVR usages becoming more and more prevalent Netflix though this was a good move, and it has been data has shown many people are doing marathon watching of this show. Many people including myself enjoy the technology references to blogging, paper print dying, politico.com and Twitter.  The show is wonderful and I have enjoyed the few episodes I have watched all we can hope for is a season two.
