Netflix to "Experiment" With DVD-Style Streaming Extras

By Gerald Lynch on at

DVD and Blu-ray extras -- arguably the last thing keeping us from ditching our physical disc-based movie libraries and giving our eyes over completely to streaming services. But with Netflix now announcing it is experimenting with DVD-extra style content tied to titles on its service, discs could truly be going the way of the dodo.

Initially, Netflix will be looking to trial the supplementary content alongside the shows that it has commissioned, such as House of Cards and Orange is The New Black. If that proves popular, Netflix will start approaching its streaming partners to license their extra content too. [GigaOm via Engadget]
