Netflix just announced that they're streaming Animaniacs in its entirety. Personally I can't wait to watch the show (I almost bought the DVDs a couple years ago) and revisit something I loved as a kid. But there's also something really validating in the news.
Recently I had someone ask me why Facebook couldn't compete against (and crush) Stareable. Well, of course they could (it's the classic boogeyman of tech startups). But Facebook is fundamentally structured to prioritize the new and the novel. They are constantly searching to fill the top of your news feed. It's why they are doing things like aggressively moving into live video.
What's the half-life on a show? A year? 5 years? Animaniacs is 20 years old and still worth watching. That's why Stareable makes sense.
But great content doesn't require you to consume it immediately. What's the half-life on a show? A year? 5 years? Animaniacs is 20 years old and still worth watching. That's why Stareable makes sense. It's like NBC's old catch phrase for summer programming‚ if you didn't see it before, it's new to you. Our goal is to help you find the content that's perfect for you. Whether it's new or a couple years old seems less relevant.
