Netflix launching Vertical Video Previews on Mobile

MacRumors reporting on a story from Variety

Announced on Wednesday at the company’s Lab Days press event in California, the upcoming feature will mean Netflix subscribers can watch 30-second previews displayed as vertical video on mobile devices.

I’m excited to see another major player embracing vertical video.

I’ll admit, I was a bit old fashioned at first and joined in the chorus of people telling everyone to turn their phones horizontal.

Now that publishers are actually creations content specifically for vertical consumption though its actually become a really interesting development in videography and editing. 

I wouldn’t want to watch a feature film shot vertically (yet, anyway) but I’m excited to see the format growing.
