• Netflix Announces 58 New Originals for Streaming!

    Good news for cord cutters who love streaming movies – Netflix has committed to nearly 60 new original shows! This means great streaming opportunities for you and your entire family!

    For those with streaming devices, Netflix already is an amazing place to enjoy great entertainment. The company already offers some amazing original programming including House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Streaming fans who love Netflix originals might also like to hear that Netflix recently confirmed 58 new original shows in addition to the ones it currently offers! This represents a $6 billion investment in new original content, sources say.

    After perusing the upcoming titles of Netflix originals, I’m pleased to see a handful of reboots from my generation. Granted, I’m always a tad bit suspicious of remakes, since they sometimes fail to capture the magic of the original, but I always give directors points for trying. In the animation category, Netflix wants to bring Stretch Armstrong to today’s generation. As a kid growing up in the 1970s, I used to have a Stretch Armstrong action figure, so it will be interesting to see how he’ll be portrayed as a cartoon hero.

    Another reboot is Voltron: Legendary Defender. By the time this popular anime came to America in 1984, I was a little old for cartoons. My younger siblings and cousins loved it though, so I would use the power of this mighty robot to pacify these youngsters whenever my parents wrangled me into babysitting. It meant missing my beloved MTV but it was well worth it for the relative peace and quiet that Voltron brought to a house filled with rowdy Ribner children. I’ll be interested to see if my sons will take a fancy to the new-and-improved Voltron.

    Cord cutters and streaming fans have a lot to look forward to this summer. All told, of the 58 new Netflix originals, there are 17 animation, 23 drama, and 11 comedies among them. There are some science fiction and foreign language original shows as well. And who knows what other great original programming Netflix has yet to announce? If you’re into streaming movies, Netflix is a great place to be!
