All of this new content is part of Netflix's aggressive plan to have over 700 original shows and movies available by the end of 2018. TechCrunch reported on this user acquisition strategy and questioned the quality of Netflix's new original programming. As suspected, the volume may be increasing, but that doesn't mean it will all be good. "You do start to wonder about how quality can be maintained when you’re aiming for that much original programming in that span of time. The answer, though, might actually be that quality isn’t really as important a factor as you might expect." (TechCrunch)
