For Netflix, it's not just about good shows, but also providing viewers with the best platforms to watch these shows. Recently, Netflix's head of product Neil Hunt revealed the company is willing to recut some of its original shows just so viewers will find it convenient to watch them on different platforms.

Despite believing that it's not practical to take a master copy and recut it immediately, the years they have to study in order to decide whether it's fitting to recut the show makes it timely.

Apparently, Netflix's show resolution is very different when watching it on TV and on a mobile device. Hannah Macpherson, the writer-director behind the show "t@gged" stressed out the struggles of watching Netflix shows on Mobile and on TV.

Apparently, some scenes are needed to be removed in order to make the series more fitting. The deleted scenes are hardly significant and reduce the quality of the show's graphics on mobile.

Neil Hunt understands the struggle and has confirmed, Netflix is willing to go the extra mile to adjust its shows. According to Yahoo, the process is very significant especially in Asian countries, who in particular uses mobile as the majority of their platforms. But the mobile platform is not the only one that is concerned. Laptops equally demand similar adjustments from Netflix's original shows.

In a report by the Business Insider, Tastemade's co-founder Steven Kydd expressed the struggle of adjusting show versions to fit the different platforms. "In TV, you shoot once and give everyone the same.

We shoot once and edit into multiple formats, then take all the data back." Apparently, publishers need to adjust regularly to the demands of platforms in order to make it work. Netflix apparently needs a new system that will wholeheartedly cater those using different platforms aside from the TV.
