The streaming service is in the “early stages” of expanding into the gaming world and the company plans on adding games as a “free add-on” to all member subscriptions.
The upcoming gaming platform will focus on games for mobile devices.

In a letter to shareholders (via THR), the company said, “We view gaming as another new content category for us, similar to our expansion into original films, animation and unscripted TV. We’re excited as ever about our movies and TV series offering and we expect a long runway of increasing investment and growth across all of our existing content categories, but since we are nearly a decade into our push into original programming, we think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games.”
Back in January 2019, Netflix remarked at how more people were leaving Netflix to go play Fortnite than they were to watch HBO.
“We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO,” the company said at the time. “There are thousands of competitors in this highly-fragmented market vying to entertain consumers and low barriers to entry for those with great experiences. Our growth is based on how good our experience is, compared to all the other screen time experiences from which consumers choose. Our focus is not on Disney+, Amazon or others, but on how we can improve our experience for our members.”
