Ampere Analysis - Netflix and Amazon's original drama strategy evolves
Amazon’s upcoming original titles show a clear focus on sci-fi & fantasy and general drama series that fall outside of action and crime. While sci-fi and drama make up only 4.4% of the current line-up of original content on Amazon's US service, together they account for over half of announced upcoming titles. Netflix is making similar moves, with sci-fi & fantasy and drama constituting 9% of its current original catalogue, but 36% of its announced upcoming original titles. 

Neither genre stood out in the mix of original content added to the catalogues over the past year, suggesting a recent strategic shift.

Genres showing a decline for original production are children & family and comedy. It may be that, especially in the case of children & family content, both services appear less keen to announce new titles—despite the genre’s clear value and importance. Recently added titles show that Amazon has maintained a focus on children's content, for example. Children's content accounts for 36% of Amazon's and 21%  of Netflix's current original library, but for the upcoming titles only 9% of Amazon and 8% of Netflix original titles fall into this genres. Additionally, Amazon has recently added significant quantities of entertainment titles, creating spikes in the ‘other genre’ category for originals through May 2017-December 2017 and December 2017–July 2018. Announced upcoming titles show less entertainment content, however. Amazon has also announced several reality titles; their first foray into original content of this genre.

Netflix Adds 7M Subscribers In Q3 Earnings Beat |
With blockbuster subscriber gains, Netflix rocketed past its earnings estimates and met its revenue expectations. The movie subscription company posted $4 billion in revenue and earnings per share of 89 cents compared to 68 cents and $4 billion, respectively. Wall Street rewarded the stock handsomely, with the stocks registering an 11-percent gain after the market close in after-hours trading as of 7:59 p.m. on Tuesday (October 16).

At the same time, the company soared past its membership estimates: It reported net additions of 7 million customers, which marked a significant beat from its forecast of 5 million customers. (CNBC reported that domestic subscription additions clocked in at just over 1 million compared to a forecast of roughly 670,000.) In a letter to shareholders, the company noted that “the variance relative to forecast was due to greater-than-expected acquisition globally, with strong growth broadly across all our markets including Asia.”
