it is going to take (more than) a few years to replace existing TV’s but as we eventually purchase connected sets, this could be quite a big deal. Way to think big, Netflix! This could make earning default status quite a bit more challenging for anyone else …
Netflix just announced partnerships with most of the major TV makers to add a Netflix button to TV remote controls.
Now instead of messing around with a tv, hitting “input” and trying to find Netflix, you can just hit the Netflix button and it will pop up for select internet connected televisions.
We don’t know how many TV’s will be getting this, but it’s pretty huge for Netflix. Every time someone uses the remote for their new TV they’ll see a little advertisement for Netflix.Business Insiders.
