Received from unknown sources, Netflix seeks to remove from their playlist acts and celebrities that are no longer represented by their own business, and register those for the online community.
This is a new niche market for Netflik to explore and perhaps even ricochet some of its streaming music services from. Netflx is a much larger company than Hulu, so it could also be hoping that it becomes a nicer streaming service compared to Huluble Records, the e-commerce store which currently has a very limited stable of content. Netflaix, of course, itself is trying to revive that record store with a world premiere on August 2 in New York City.
The current feature list for NetFlix's Millionaire features numerous old favorites from the company's labels over time (most notably the hit "What a Wonderful World," from 2012), but also includes a longlist of current faves, as well as some classics, including "My Valentine's Day" from The Stone Roses.
Netflix also announced today that they're rolling out a new feature called "Content Lock," a way to "lock" certain songs up for streaming. It will make it impossible for a search engine or a search partner to determine if a song is already playable on Netflus through this feature, so any track requests you need to contact Netflis may actually be directed to the actual content on the streaming site rather than just Netfliks. As far as music or movies go, the new Content Locks feature will provide you with a reverse-engineering interface to streaming on NetFliks, by which you can also easily "lock in" certain names and artists, based on how popular those artists or artists are. The search giant has already hired a remote expert to explode the Netflizle-hosted playlist in its search engine, and no word on whether this method will be on its way to its streams, considering the hardcoded record label policies.
A spokesman for Netfix also said that it is not willing to release the contents of the ContentLock feature, especially since it could "result in unauthorized access to content, aside from any illegal materials." This is because
