Netflix to get own remote control button

2 April 2015

netflix-transparent Netflix is getting so popular that they're going to get their own button on someone else's remote control. Of course, this has been a thing in the States for a while, but now it is coming to the UK.

At CES, Netflix said that they're backing certain televisions because they give a good Netflix experience. This basically means the manufacturers are willing to put a Netflix button on the remote and that the app has a fast start-up time.

And so, joining in the fun are Sony, Panasonic and Philips.

That's just one of the things Netflix are doing in a bid to ramp things up this year. As well as the remote buttons, they're also going to launch in Australia and, most importantly, they're looking at getting rid of the regions which means that one country sees a show before others.

They're also pushing for net neutrality in the US and going after broadcast networks.

Of course, Netflix will be making a load of new, original programming after the successes of House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. One of the big shows they'll be shunting at you is an original TV series of Daredevil.
