Netflix-CEO Reed Hastings at MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin / re:publica
If the entire industry today speaks of horizontal narratives and is experimenting with new series formats, it is largely thanks to Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings. With the series “House of Cards”, which promptly received three Emmys without ever being shown on traditional television, as well as numerous other award-winning series such as “Orange is the New Black”, Netflix has made entertainment history. In the process, it has proved that Internet TV can produce sophisticated content, and that they have become serious rivals to traditional TV. Since the Netflix entry into the market, a wave of innovation has swept across the media landscape, and has reached Germany and Europe as well.
At his first public appearance in Germany since the German start of Netflix in September 2014, Hastings will speak at MEDIA CONVENTION/re:publica Berlin on the future of digital entertainment and the Netflix plans for Germany, Europe and the globe
