An interview with Jim Jefferies on CNBC informs that we can watch him on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) whenever we find it convenient. There is no more need to follow up the TV schedule or to calculate the time difference between the coasts.
It seems a very convenient alternative to the traditional form of broadcasting shows.
“[…] Every other comedy special I’ve done is run to like 54 – 56 minutes, because it has to go within an hour and has to have an ad brake before and an ad break after. This one with Netflix, I think, goes like 72 – 73 minutes and the show ends when the show ends […],” said Jim Jefferies about his new “Jim Jefferies Bare”.
Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) offers a full range of fresh Stand-Up Specials, among which a show with Chelsea Handler that debuts on September 10 and another with Bill Cosby – on November 28. The intention behind the decision is mainly to get people watch comedy, kick back, and relax. The success of their idea depends on the audience and how they will draw its attention. It’s not surprising that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) followed this path of promoting itself and enlarging the range of demographics towards which they aim. Possibly, this way people will even start watching full shows anew instead of following up short cuts on YouTube.
“[…] It’s like music, you used to listen to a whole album and now people would just download one song here, one song there. So hopefully, something like this on Netflix will make people watch more complete shows,” added Jim Jefferies.
It is unclear how much this will help Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) boost its ratings or bump its share price, but the move cannot bear bad news. Besides, the decision adding a new series of shows displays enough respect towards the standard procedures of a media company.
