Netflix is exploring another growing segment: live streaming. The first to perform in real-time on the platform is Chris Rock, who will star in a live comedy special airing sometime in early 2023.
Netflix's recent move was spurred by similar offerings from competitors Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+. According to Deadline, other live content that may be on its way includes a competition series with live voting, streaming of the Netflix Is A Joke festival, and segments featuring Reality show stars.
In the meantime, Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle are scheduled to start a co-headlining tour across California in San Diego on December 1.
