Now Playing: Watch a Netflix movie on Apple TV Now Playing “I’m really excited to be here with all of you and I want to thank you all for being a part of the journey,” he said.
“I want to share that we have more great content coming up in the next few months and we will be releasing a new episode in March that I think will be very exciting for everyone, and hopefully you’ll all watch it.”
Netflix’s CEO Reed Hastings is joined by co-CEO and President Ted Sarandos in the CEO Lounge at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
Sarandos, who is the co-founder of the tech company, said Netflix will be the most popular service in the U.S. by 2019.
“I think in the short term, the big challenge for Netflix is that they have an audience that’s growing, but the audience is growing faster than the service itself,” Sarandus said.
“There’s a lot of content out there, and it’s very easy to find.
If you go to Netflix, it’s going to be there.”
Sarands said the service is also going to grow more quickly in the United States.
“What I’m really proud of is that we’re bringing a ton of our content to people in the US, and we’re not only in the top 10, but in the number one position for content, so that’s exciting,” he added.
“We have to keep it in the bottom half, but I think we’re going to do great.”
Netflix is going to keep rolling out content that will expand its subscriber base.
The company is currently working on a new original series, and will also be launching new movies in the coming months.
“We have a lot more content in the pipeline,” Sarands said.
In the past few years, Netflix has seen huge growth, with over 100 million people watching its shows on a daily basis.
It’s estimated that over 70 percent of the world’s population watches Netflix every month.
This year alone, Netflix surpassed 4.5 billion people watched the show.
When asked if Netflix is becoming more like HBO or Showtime, Sarandas said Netflix is still a “partner” with HBO, and that they are not competing directly with each other.
However, he added that Netflix will soon have access to HBO’s content.
He also said that Netflix has been experimenting with new ways to stream shows, and is in talks with some TV networks to get access to their shows.
“We’re going forward with new shows and we have a long list of shows that we think will work well on the platform,” he explained.
“But it’s something we’re looking at, and something we hope to do, and have a really good platform for.
We’re not a competitor with HBO.”
Netflix has also recently started rolling out new original content, like a feature-length documentary titled “The King and I,” which will be available to all users in April.
Netflix is also starting to get serious about launching its own original shows.
Currently, the streaming service has plans to launch a comedy show called “The Tick,” which is being written by Michael J. Anderson and produced by Seth Rogen.
At the Tribeca film festival, Hastings said he would be looking forward to watching that new show, but also said the company is “not looking at any other new shows.”
“The Tick is something we’ll probably look at when we have something really exciting coming up,” he revealed.
“There’s some really good shows coming up.”
The King is currently being filmed in Los Angeles.
