For years, Netflix has dominated the streaming world by offering a wide range of on-demand movies, TV shows, documentaries, and original content.
And we all know this, right?
But now, with the growing popularity and demand for live sports streaming, Netflix is considering expanding its offerings and venturing into the realm of live sports.
It seems that Netflix is following in the footsteps of Paramount+, Peacock, and Max.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the streaming giant is actively working on live-streaming a celebrity golf event as its first step into the live sports streaming market.
This celebrity golf event aims to bring together popular stars from Netflix’s PGA Full Swing Show and its F1 shows, creating a thrilling competition between professional golfers and skilled drivers on the golf course.
Netflix has been gradually exploring live events, including stand-up specials and a Love is Blind reunion, but now they are focusing on expanding into live sports.
However, there’s a catch!
Before committing to major sporting events, Netflix is taking a cautious approach by testing the waters with a celebrity sporting event.
This strategy will allow them to gauge viewership, assess the performance of their streaming infrastructure, and address any potential challenges or bugs that may arise.
Anyway, we have to wait until Netflix launches this to see how successful their venture into live sports streaming will be.
