Interestingly, people born in the 80s till mid 90s belong to a group commonly known as millennials. Furthermore, millennials have subscribed to numerous streaming platforms including Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, Prime Video, Peacock, AMC Plus, etc. in huge numbers.

Likewise, this group of people usually prefer online streaming over traditional TV sets. Therefore, online streaming services are compelled to produce TV shows, movies, and documentaries related to various attractive genres such as action, comedy, romance, drama, thriller, science-fiction, suspense, etc.  

What is personalized entertainment?

Personalized entertainment is all about recommending shows, movies, and documentaries to subscribers based on their streaming preferences and behavior. 

In addition to this, Netflix and other streaming platforms have taken great advantage of AI (Artificial Intelligence) that helps them recommend media content to their users according to their personal choices, preferences, and behavior.  

Taking the above scenario into account, streaming services have been fulfilling their millennial subscribers’ streaming demands as they offer them unique and personalized media content on a regular basis. 

Smarter content has become a reality

When you sign-in to your Netflix, Disney Plus or any other video on demand streaming service account, you tend to see different sorts of shows or movies recommended by your video on demand service. 

These recommended shows or other media content are optimized based on their watching history and behavior including what kind of genre they like the most, their favorite actors, and other content-related data. 

This way, streaming platforms offer customized content to their subscribers that ultimately helps viewers optimize their personalized streaming experience to new heights. 

Surprisingly, Netflix has started experimenting with new forms of interactive content that varies from users to users. For example, millennial viewers can directly influence the storyline and dialogues of a particular episode of a TV show i.e. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch based on their own choices. 

Apart from this, Netflix has already started changing episode order of a specific TV series to satisfy the streaming cravings of different millennial users at a time.

Personalized streaming features are win-win situation for millennial viewers

Due to the influence of the millennial target audience, various streaming services such as Hulu, Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, Disney Plus, etc. have added different enticing features to help their subscribers’ streaming needs appropriately.  

For example, Netflix offers an attractive party feature that allows a group of subscribers having similar preferences and choices content-wise watch a particular show virtually at the same time without any hassle. 

Similarly, the same concept has been followed by other streaming services such as Disney Plus and Amazon Prime Video. The former provides a group watch feature that enables users to stream a specific show based on their identical streaming behavior and preferences simultaneously on their desired devices. 

The same goes for Amazon Prime Video as the popular US-based streaming giant offers a personalized streaming feature by the name of ‘Watch Party’ to its users. 

Through this impressive ‘Watch Party’ feature, different users with the same content preferences or choices can watch any show or movie on their preferred devices simultaneously without any problem. 

Besides, all these services have one thing in common, which is video streaming quality. That’s because users can change the video quality using different options like standard, UHD and 4K to stream media content depending on their requirements stress-free. 

By doing so, millennials and other subscribers can take their personalized streaming fun to a whole new level without compromising on their media cravings. 

In a nutshell, millennials have greatly influenced streaming platforms media content-wise because these services have started producing customized or smarter content such as shows or movies keeping their millennial subscribers’ content choices in mind.
