DID YOU KNOW?
Netflix will now release episodes for some of its shows on a weekly basis, like regular cable TV. Yes, you read that right! Netflix is changing its way of releasing some of its shows from putting all episodes out at once. The first show to implement the new weekly treatment in October is The Great British Baking Show. This means viewers can keep up with the reality competition as they would on a regular cable. Netflix's new show Rhythm & Flow will also have the same treatment. Its first four episodes will premiere on October 9 and then it will release four episodes per week. Hold your horses though before you go and cancel your subscription! The streaming service isn't doing anything drastically new. If you are not aware, its show The Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj has weekly releases. The same goes for other shows in the past, although most of it is talk shows and reality shows.
Surprisingly, this does not mean Netflix will adapt this strategy for all its shows especially for its popular and top Netflix Originals. In fact, the streaming giant has clarified that it won't be making any big changes with its other programming. But if Netflix ever decides to change its programming release schedule, it won't be the only streaming service to do so. Hulu and CBS All Access have implemented a similar release schedule throughout the years. Recently, Disney+ confirmed it will release its episodes on a weekly basis. Obviously, these staggered releases will benefit those who don't have time to binge-watch. But for those who have time to do a full marathon of episodes then Netflix is still their sanctuary.
