  5. 5. NETFLIX SOCIAL MOVIE SHARING Everybody wants our customer. Everyday new challengers arise to gain our customer’s attention. And our customers aren’t loyal to providers. Many consumers maintain simultaneous relationships with multiple video providers, from HBO go to Hulu to Amazon. Right now, the differentiator among providers is the content, not the delivery system. Getting “good” content is subjective and acquiring enough new content is one of our biggest challenges. How can Netflix differentiate from the pack and encourage customers to stay with us and engage more often? THE CHALLENGE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 5Sunday, September 29, 13

Having that shared experience is what makes it so fun” Leila is a recent college grad who is working a nice office gig in midtown Manhattan. Even though she enjoys her current role she is always looking for ways to advance her career. She works hard, but that doesn't stop her social schedule. She always has plans - if work doesn’t get in the way! Movies and TV shows are a major part of her monthly entertainment. She’ll take the recommendation of close friends or family members and back up that recommendation with the rating on Rotten Tomatoes. She prefers watching movies and shows with friends so she can share in the moments with them - the happy, the sad, and everything in between. Watching plot lines unfold is an emotional experience for her and she enjoys discussing the movie immediately after watching with those around her. - when she’s “in the moment.” Likes: Up and Coming artists Staying in touch with friends and colleagues Movie Nights and Award Show Parties Frustrations: Predictable big-box Movies Risk Being out of the loop Needs/Goals: Convenient way to plan movie nights More opportunities to spend time with friends Socializer 13Sunday, September 29, 13

And he couldn’t have picked a better profession! Mason is a man who loves the free exchange of ideas. He is an art junkie, bar none and gets his fix by sharing an admiration of a great film with like-minded friends. He speaks about everything from its poor cinematography and great lighting to how the films breaking from traditional narrative structure and character development are leading to a sea change in the American cultural lexicon. Not only does Mason love watching, discussing and sharing films with others to him a great film might as well be a North Star to the soul. He doesn’t have a traditional television and instead streams all of his media content. He uses multiple sources to stream from including Netflix, especially to watch older movies he’s seen before.

He’s usually happy to do or watch whatever his girlfriend wants to do or watch. As long as he can watch his shows when he’s alone cleaning his apartment he’s satisfied. He’s heard of some new shows on Netflix but hasn’t bothered watching them - he already has a network TV show he’s catching up on and that’s plenty for him. He hasn’t watched Netflix in a couple months. And that one time he did he used his friends account to watch the movie version of a book that he just read.
