Talking Tech - November 1:
Netflix rewinds a feature idea, Can we bundle streaming overload?

Netflix’s plan to speed things up was stopped in its tracks

Netflix planned to launch a new feature to allow you to watch content at a faster and slower speed.

Although Netflix says this suggestion came from their users, their creators freaked out and forced Netflix to reverse course.

Why might you want to speed something up? To see more content — there is so much being added each and every month.

Why might you want to slow it down? To get more time to process a foreign language film.

Is there a way to bundle all these subscription TV and movie services?

Not yet! But it would be great – huh?

The news industry has been in this paywall model now for some time and they haven’t found a good solution yet.
