netflix-silverlight-html5Netflix, the hugely popular video streaming site, is all set to roll out its very first feature length film some time later next year, and this particular bit of news came about after Netflix came to an understanding with the Weinstein Company, at least according to reports on the ground. As to what this film will be, all about, it so happens to be the sequel to the Oscar-winning martial arts drama by Ang Lee – that is, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, where it will be shown in the comfort of your own home – or you can always opt to hop over to the nearest IMAX cinema if that is not your cup of tea.

With Netflix boasting of having more than 50 million subscribers across 40 over countries, one can only think of just how big of an impact it will have on the bottomline if folks prefer to remain at home and shun some big screen action. Still, I would like to think that if you are going to have a martial arts drama, there is no better place to be than at a cinema due to the scale of things shown.

Right now, we do know that Netflix is producing its very own TV programmes, with House of Cards being one of the more famous “exports”, so to speak. Netflix has certainly come a long way since its 1997 days where it kicked things off by being a postal DVD rental service, going to show how businesses need to reinvent themselves if they would want to remain ahead of the curve.
