Is this why the Murdochs are making a mistake with their break up of 21st Century Fox (which could come any day)? Regarding Netflix as the enemy, as they have long treated Apple, Google and now Facebook, the Murdochs at 21st Century Fox (and News Corp) may be making another empire-changing mistake. Netflix is changing and the change asks the questions why haven’t the Murdochs caught on?
A few months ago we reported on how Netflix was starting to look more like a traditional TV network, cancelling shows based on the level of viewer interest, promoting existing programs and structuring storylines around already popular ideas, and extending the series run for highly viewed series (House of Cards being the best example). In other words rewarding success and quickly killing off failures and their costs.
