Vox’s new Netflix series is really good, but it doesn’t get us any closer to figuring out what news on streaming platforms looks like » Nieman Journalism Lab
Vox is interesting here because, unlike the vast majority of news organizations, it has always conceived of its text products and its video products separately. Vox videos are not Vox stories gussied up in moving-image form; they are their own distinct product targeting their own distinct market. In text — a quick-turn, low-production-cost medium — providing hourly updates on the latest twist in the Mueller investigation makes perfect sense. But it would be a dumb strategy for high-production-value video. And longish examinations of “Monogamy, Explained” make less sense in a text story that’ll soon be buried in the archives than in a video that can be algorithmically pushed to YouTube users forever. This means that most Vox videos are not what I’d consider “news” — more like “smart content for a curious, engaged audience” — but it’s still a thoughtful strategy.

Netflix is interesting here because, well, it’s Netflix. It has 125 million paying subscribers; it is producing more movies per year than most major movie studios combined; it is the default lean-back behavior in millions of people’s evenings. If anyone can choose to direct human attention toward quality news in video form, it’s Netflix.
