It’s been less than a decade since Netflix pioneered the binge model, releasing the episodes of its original titles like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black all at once, thereby disrupting the television industry and changing how we all watch TV. But now, as intimidating competitors like Disney+ begin to emerge, Netflix may be changing how it does things.
The streaming platform is reportedly testing out weekly releases for a few titles, including the The Great British Baking Show, which shifted from a binge release to week-to-week this season. With that change for this incredibly popular reality series, could more Netflix weekly releases be in the future?
