Netflix Moves to 'Pod' Model as It Rolls Out Its First Children's Series CNN
Netflix gained adult fans for its decision to release all episodes of its original series at once, allowing for binge viewing over a weekend, but the streaming site won’t offer the same feature with its first series for children, reports CNN.
The series, “Turbo: FAST,” will be released starting Dec. 24, but with just five episodes at first, the story says. The streaming site plans to release other groups of episodes, which it calls “pods,” at future holidays.
“Historically we have said that original series will be released in ways that best support the story, so if it suits the show, it is always possible we could release in a different way,” a spokeswoman for Netflix said.
