Why Netflix is increasing Investment in India while Bollywood is going through deep loss!!

Half decade back If I would have said Netflix, there might be one or two people would have responded 'Yes I know what it is' but if I say it today, then minimum 8 out of 10 people would easily respond 'I have Netflix', 'My daughter is crazy about Netflix'. Astonishingly Netflix has been increasing fund to produce contents for Indian Consumers. But today, Bollywood is going through big loss. Out of 10 only one or two movies are making good money! This is fact. So lets know the secret behind it!!!!

What is Netflix?

Netflix is a digital entertainment platform. Unlike youtube, Netflix is a video watching platform but the only difference is Netflix is showing movies and it is not available for free. In 2016, Netflix officially stepped in Indian Market.

Note: Netflix is online movie streaming platform. So even before 2016 Netflix was available to people residing in India. By paying the monthly subscription, people used to use its service. But after stepping officially, Netflix has gained more popularity and genuine subscribers.

Birth Story of Netflix

In 1997, Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph founded Netflix, Inc. in Scotts Valley of California State, United States of America. The initial business model was to provide Movie DVD on rental basis or on sales. They used to handle the orders through Emails. Almost ten years later, they stepped into streaming videos but still continued DVD rental business.

Why Netflix is Increasing Investment in India 2019?

Yes. It is absolutely true, Netflix has increased its fund for new original contents for Indian Audience. And it might be appearing bit hard to digest because movies are making money hardly. 

So why Netflix has taken such step? 

The reason is very obvious. Theatres and Multiplexes are losing audience but digital platform are gaining its viewers very fast. And on the other side, if we look at the subscription cost, the audience are in high profit. Because they are getting world class cinema for the price of popcorn and cold drinks they purchase during interval of a single movie. And plus, digital platform such as Netflix is providing its content at ultra HD Resolution. 

People are watching Netflix in their large LED Television set at home. 

And if you are local train traveller in a Metro city like Mumbai or Chennai, you could easily see people are watching Netflix in their laptop and mobile phones to kill the travel time. 

Therefore, Netflix has foreseen the potential audience available in India and thats why increased its fund for original content production for Indian audience.
