Abstract

This thesis argues that Netflix has reconceptualized television. It bases this claim on the fact that the company helped promote the growth of the DVD standard that popularized associated "binge-viewing" behaviors, pioneered the deployment of streaming media for television and film content, and introduced new data-intensive greenlighting strategies and distribution systems for original programming. After establishing that Netflix reconceptualized television, this thesis analyzes some of the cultural implications of this reconceptualization.
