“We love the cinema. Here are a few points that we love just as much. Make it accessible [to the film] to people who can’t afford to go there regularly, or who live in towns without a cinema. Let everyone in the world, no matter where they are located, to determine the new outputs at the same time. Providing filmmakers with more ways to share their movies. And all this at the same time,” wrote Netflix Movie.

today, with the rise of platforms of streaming, such as Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and soon to be Disney +, the question of whether the productions of these platforms may be eligible will become the center of conversation.
