Netflix tests water of multimedia empire

July 4, 2019 -- Netflix is launching a slew of merchandise tie-ins to coincide with the release of Season 3 of their smash hit streaming show “Stranger Things”. The move is seen as an attempt to enter the wider world of merchandising – the domain of industry giants like Disney.

Building a media empire by expanding its intellectual properties is one way Netflix is preparing to face increasing competition.

The streaming service is bracing for new rivals players, like Disney+ and Apple TV+, due to debut later this year.

“Stranger Things” debuted in 2016 and immediately became a phenomenon, triggering Netflix to take its first tentative steps into consumer products by licensing the rights to BonusXP, who made a video game for iOS and Android devices.

Now for Season 3, two new games are on their way, as well as clothes, toys and food tie-ins.

Finding new ways to retain and grow subscription-paying viewers by capitalising on popular shows is becoming a vital way to cling on to the company’s dominance – especially important as Disney withdraws its Marvel and Lucasfilm content from Netflix, to air on its own upcoming streaming service.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!


If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
