NETFLIX wants to start making live programmes for the first time in a desperate attempt to gain new subscribers.
The streaming giant is reportedly looking into live specials for unscripted shows and stand-up performances.
This could allow the platform to add live voting as well.
Live reunions for shows like Selling Sunset could also work.
According to Deadline sources, the idea is still in the early days of testing.
It all comes after Netflix revealed that it had lost more subscribers than it gained for the first time in a decade earlier this year.
So the firm is under pressure to find new ways of engaging more viewers.
The Stranger Things maker is also planning to ban password sharing on the platform in a bid to stem losses.
It’s thought about 100million accounts are shared with people outside of their household – something Netflix bosses have long turned a blind eye to.
Another plan in the making is introducing adverts to Netflix for the first time.
This would allow people to access the service’s entire catalogue at a cut price.
Ads could start to appear as soon as October.
A number of big budget projects have also been scrapped to save money.
Meghan Markle’s cartoon series Pearl was among the casualties.
