Interactive films

Netflix has previously invested in games on a small scale, with, for example, a game based on the popular series Stranger Things. Netflix has also made several interactive films and series, such as the film  Black Mirror: Bandersnatch . In it, viewers can make their own decisions at key moments in order to influence the course of the story.

Netflix has been keeping an eye on games for some time: in 2019, Netflix said that Fortnite is  a bigger competitor  than pay channel HBO, a pioneer in the field of TV series with a large budget. But when it comes to grabbing consumers’ attention in a fragmented entertainment market, Fortnite would pose a greater danger to Netflix.
