Get ready to ‘YouTube and chill’ as new brands join the stream dream

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

If you feel like you’ve seen every­thing on Net­flix, pre­pare for a new dawn, as ma­jor tech com­pa­nies are jump­ing on the stream­ing band­wagon. YouTube has re­port­edly in­vested mil­lions in orig­i­nal content in the past year, sign­ing up Ellen DeGeneres and Jack White­hall, while Face­book has cre­ated a new ‘Watch’ tab, which will fea­ture doc­u­men­taries and re­al­ity shows. And never one to be left out, Ap­ple has now com­mit­ted to a £3 bil­lion spend on orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming, while Snapchat, which al­ready has spin-off shows of The Bach­e­lor and The Voice US, hopes to get its own shows on our phones by the end of the year. Fi­nally, Net­flix re-binge­ing will be a thing of the past: new TV is here to save us from our­selves.
