Now that net neutrality is dead, only Netflix can save us

Netflix has produced a family of original shows that have had varying degrees of success, from the critical panning of Hemlock Grove to the Emmy win of House of Cards, but once you’re done binge-watching a series on Netflix, there’s nothing else to see. DVD box sets contain hours of bloopers, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage, but Netflix has yet to offer any additional content on its site. Speaking with CNET, Netflix VP of product innovation Todd Yellin says that might change soon. Yellin stressed that the shows will always be the focus for Netflix, “[b]ut supplemental content, whether that’s extra features or so forth, we’re going to test that around our own originals.” If users respond positively to extra features, Netflix will also consider licensing additional content from other partners. Yellin did not provide a timetable for when the extra features might begin rolling out.
