According to Deadline, Netflix is looking into whether to offer live streaming to its subscribers. The company has previously confirmed that it is in the early stages of creating a live streaming solution, but has yet to announce the official introduction of live content. It has been suggested that the earliest live shows could appear in entertainment series, such as the upcoming dance competition “Dance 100,” or possibly live as part of Netflix’s Is A Joke comedy show.
