There would be more Netflix and chill now that DreamWorks has stretched out their film and TV rights agreement with Netflix Inc.
The said agreement warrants a number of original series that would be added to Netflix such as their feature film library to be aired even outside of China. Furthermore, Volvo has plans to incorporate streaming services into their automobiles as they now offer a built-in TV set into the dashboard which may feature Netflix products.
“Netflix and chill” has become one of the trending hashtags on Twitter and anywhere else in social media. Turns out, fans of the franchise are going to experience more viewing pleasures as DreamWorks Animation and Volvo have extended their relationship with the company, adding more convenience to watching films to a whole new level.
As reported by Variety, the Voltron franchise of DWA is coming to Netflix and will be made available for fans’ viewing pleasure, even those outside of China. Plus, the series “Trollhunters” will also be featured in the said program from the creative mind of filmmaker Guillermo del Torro.
Other services made available for streaming include “The Adventure of Puss in Boots,” “Dragons: Race to the Edge,” and “Dinotrux,” according to a Netflix Press Release. In fact, it was revealed that the DWA’s television production commitments already sum up to 1,600 episodes for SVOD and linear podiums.
During an interview, Netflix’s vice president for original series Cindy Holland revealed, “DreamWorks Animation is synonymous with great storytelling that families around the world enjoy. It’s with great pleasure that we expand on an already successful relationship with DreamWorks Animation to bring more premium kids and family television to Netflix members globally.”
In other news, The Guardian also reported that Volvo, a Swedish car manufacturer, is in talks of providing future consumers with Netflix movies featured in their upcoming vehicles.
The company’s Concept 26 model which was revealed during the LA Auto Show last November of 20115 was said to incorporate a folding screen to be placed within the dashboard. The consumers would also get the opportunity to watch Netflix while taking a spin at the vehicle as Ericsson is set to create a software designed to have access to streaming services.
According to Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz, head of the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center, “The car will know how long the journey needs to take and can optimize the route and driving control accordingly. With our future autonomous drive technology, we will provide people with the freedom to choose the way they would like to commute.”
He added, “We recently unveiled our design vision for fully autonomous cars with Concept 26. Now we are actively working on future solutions to deliver the best user experience in fully autonomous mode. Imagine a highway full of autonomous cars with their occupants sitting back watching their favourite TV shows in high definition. This new way of commuting will demand new technology, and a much broader bandwidth to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience,” as per a Volvo Cars Press Release.
The said automobile would be tested around Gothenburg, Sweden this coming 2017. Confirmation from Netflix about their involvement in the said automobile’s feature is yet to be announced.
For online streaming fans, there would be more Netflix and chill now that DreamWorks Animation has invested more to its franchise. Additionally, now that Volvo Cars may be in on the development, online streaming services may extend their reach by Netflix Inc. to more viewers worldwide.
