White Paper: Original Programming
ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING IS THE NEW BLACK
Ask anyone to name original TV shows available exclusively from SVOD services—Netflix, Amazon, Hulu—and they’ll probably name about five or six: House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, Transparent, Stranger Things, Difficult People, The Man in the High Castle…
But here are some fun facts. As of July 2016, online streaming services offered not just 5 or 6 shows, but close to 50 original series to its subscribers. And that number is expected to nearly triple in 2017, to more than 130 original shows.
