Netflix Is “Not taking risks on people without names” Anymore? Oscar-Winner Jane Campion Opens Up On Subscriber-Fall

Netflix has always been an open culture platform that gave people the opportunity to attract viewers through shows and movies. For instance, the exclusive release of Stranger Things made Duffer Brothers and cast members enormously popular amongst people. Also, the Oscar-winning filmmaker Jane Campion has admitted that the platform has helped several new faces to flourish in entertainment.

But with the streamer facing a huge loss of subscribers, it has become crucial that they take every step cautiously. So Jane’s fear grows that the streamer will not take chances with unrecognized people and only focus on profitable business.
