Netflix Introduces New Television Experience

LOS GATOS, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), the world's leading Internet television network, today launched a radically new look that makes Netflix on TVs a much richer and more immersive experience.

The new design was created specifically for the big screen, featuring multiple cinematic images for each title along with a new, snappy description and more personalized detail on why Netflix suggests it. In a Netflix first, the new TV experience rolls out simultaneously across multiple devices that deliver Netflix to a TV screen, accounting for the majority of all Netflix viewing hours on televisions.

"Our members collectively watch more than a billion hours of Netflix a month, most of that is on a TV," said Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt. "This is the biggest change to the Netflix experience on televisions in our history, making it even easier to find something great to watch on Netflix, bringing our members many more hours of Netflix enjoyment on their TVs."

The new TV experience is delivered by a new Netflix software platform that runs efficiently on various devices, from low-powered set top boxes, recent model Smart TVs and Blu-ray players to high end game consoles. Previously each device had its own Netflix experience, which meant features took longer to roll out across devices.

"This new software platform will allow us to innovate even faster and continuously improve the Internet television experience for our members across multiple devices," said Hunt.

The new Netflix television experience launches on Netflix on Nov. 13 and will be available to all members globally within two weeks. Devices that will support the new experience include PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Roku 3, newer Smart TVs and recent Blu-ray players. Additional devices, including other Roku boxes, will be added at a later date.
