Netflix testing short-form content aimed at mobile

Thursday 11 September 2014 | 15:53 CET | News
Netflix is considering adding two- to five-minute-long clips to its catalogue to provide its expanding number of mobile users some bite-sized content to watch, design manager Dantley Davis revealed during an event at Netflix's Los Gatos headquarters on 4 September, reported Gigaom. Netflix is not planning to offer webisodes and user-generated content, but rather key scenes from TV shows, short snippets of movies and small clips from comedy stand-up specials, all generated from the catalogue of shows and movies Netflix already offers.
