N-Plus is a new service from Netflix. The streaming giant surveyed users across the globe. The survey describes it as “a future online space where you can learn more about the Netflix shows you love and anything related to them.”
According to the same survey, the new service will have interesting features, like the ability to create and share movie & TV playlists online.
Speaking of playlists, N-Plus will also let users discover music used in movies & TV shows—kind of like Prime Video’s “X-Ray” overlay—and turn them into sharable playlists. Is Netflix considering music streaming too?
With N-Plus, Netflix is pushing more content around their titles, like accompanying podcasts and shows. It isn’t like Netflix hasn’t been doing this already; their social game is strong and they regularly spew promotional content and commentary web shows like I Like To Watch with drag queens Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova.
The most curious thing, to me, perhaps, is why put these all behind a presumably bigger paywall? Prime Video has tie-in shows that come free with the standard subscription. Moreover, wouldn’t it make better sense if review and commentary shows were published where they’re easier to access, like YouTube? What are your guys’ thoughts?
