‘The Witcher’ Breaks Netflix Series Viewership Records

Netflix, however, has changed the way it reports a “view.” Previously, the company counted a view as a member account watching at least 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a feature film. Now, it is touting that viewers “chose to watch” a given title, meaning that member watched for as little as two minutes — “long enough to indicate the choice was intentional,” per a footnote in the earnings report. Under that measurement, the streamer says The Witcher is on track to have the biggest first season ever for a Netflix original. – Rick Porter, The Hollywood Reporter » https://trib.al/HYCqnK4

Roku’s Growth Trajectory Looks Solid, but Volatility Remains a Factor

The future looks bright for Roku, but it’s not a stock for the feint of heart. It will continue to be volatile, and if Amazon is able to beat expectations with its Fire TV, it’ll be rightly perceived that Roku could take longer to match its active user base. That wouldn’t be a disaster in any way, but it would slow its pace of growth and share price trajectory. – TipRanks via Yahoo Finance » https://ift.tt/2tjBcvN [photo: Top: Michael Whay / Bottom: TipRanks]
