Netflix has revealed that it is set to add video games as part of its subscription packages at no extra cost.
This information is contained in a letter to investors, which disclosed that it was in the early stages of expanding into games and games for mobile would be added to the platform first.
Netflix said on Tuesday, “The time is right to learn more about how our members value games.”
In its latest financial records, it said, “Covid has created some lumpiness in our membership growth (higher growth in 2020, slower growth this year), which is working its way through.
“We continue to focus on improving our service for our members and bringing them the best stories from around the world.”
The company’s shares dipped in after-hours of trading after it missed a target on subscriptions.
It said it expects to sign up 3.5 million new customers in the three months to the end of September – less than the 5.86 million analysts that had been estimated.
