‘ICYMI’ ‘IN CASE YOU MISSED IT’ OR ‘ICIMI’ ‘IN CASE I MISSED IT’ – RENEWALS CANCELLATIONS & MORE

‘ICYMI’ ‘IN CASE YOU MISSED IT’ OR ‘ICIMI’ ‘IN CASE I MISSED IT’ –
RENEWALS CANCELLATIONS & MORE

What is the best strategy for networks, showing all episodes at once or maintaining weekly airings?

What’s good for Netflix & Amazon, not so good for the TV networks….
Good article from The Hollywood Reporter whether the all eps at once is the way forward and my opinion is Yes (Netflix & Amazon) & No (if the network relies on advertising NBC, FOX, why would viewers watch the eps if they can watch all on day 1?)
TV’s Growing Dilemma: To Binge or Not to Binge?

Netflix broke the tried & tested formula of releasing episodes of new shows on a weekly basis by making the whole 1st (and subsequent) seasons of the ‘House Of Cards’ in early 2013.

Amazon have followed suit with their releases and traditional TV & cable networks have tried the non linear (VOD/online) game plan with NBC putting all 13 eps of ‘Aquarius’ online & STARZ the cable network with ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’. It’s clear to me that what works for the subscription services doesn’t work for ad supported TV channels. ‘Aquarius’ has struggled and has been dumped to Saturday nights although it has been renewed. ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ not so lucky and the upcoming 3rd season will be the last.

One thought on “‘ICYMI’ ‘IN CASE YOU MISSED IT’ OR ‘ICIMI’ ‘IN CASE I MISSED IT’ – RENEWALS CANCELLATIONS & MORE”

  1. I’ve said it before and will mention again that I love the release of all at once episodes for series that leave you hanging at the end of each. It’s hard to wait for the next week. My 2 favorites this summer, Murder in the First and Complications are in that category. BTW, it was nice to see Beth Riesgraf in Complications. Totally different type of character than “Parker” and she played it well.
