All quotes by Ted Sarandos on Netflix

As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel's The Avengers to Millarworld's Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee. The moment Lucy and I walked into Netflix's headquarters in California last Christmas we knew this was where we wanted to be. It instantly felt like home and the team around that table felt like people who would help us take Millarworld's characters and turn them into global powerhouses.feedback

We love that there's a deep-passioned fan base for a show. We just need it to be big enough to support the economics of that show so we don't create opportunity cost for future fans of new shows.feedback

The more shows we add, the more likely in absolute numbers that you'll see cancellations, of course. But that's only novel on Netflix.feedback

The story of this festival, for whatever reason, has been those two films. And remember, those films were invited here solely on their merits. Thierry [Frémaux, Cannes Artistic Director] has an incredible track record of cultivating the greatest movies of the year from all over the world, and these two films, according to him, qualify. If you are inventing qualifications for how a film has to appear on a commercial basis, that seems very out of step with the spirit of the festival, and the independence of the festival.feedback

There's no mechanism to make a movie like Okja today outside of what we're doing. No studio would take that risk on a Korean director on a film that barely has any English language in it.feedback

Studios have no appetite for risk. Take 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, which came to Cannes with no distribution deal at all. We don't want to signal to competitors where to focus their dollars. The number of people who have seen Palme d'Or-winning films in theatres relative to the population who see these movies [overall] is very small.feedback

I'm really thrilled for director Bong and and Noah Baumbach that people are talking about their films.feedback

They were fully aware of our release strategy. I talked to them before Oscar weekend [in February] about some of these films.feedback

We are living among a generation who have seen every great movie ever made on a phone. So I think we all just have to come to grips with where technology and culture take us. And by the way, I'm more thrilled that they are seeing the movies than I am concerned with the size of the screen they're watching them on. Okja is a beautiful movie when you see it, but if you had to bet your career on filling movie theatres on opening weekend with that film you'd be losing sleep. So we've become a major exporter of European content to the world.feedback

And in my opinion while that may sound risky, putting it in the hands of director Bong? Not very risky at all.feedback

The market's too competitive. That's when we bonded and he saw I really do love movies.feedback

We're living amid a generation that has seen every great movie ever made on a phone, so I think we all have to come to grips with where technology takes us. Why would we want to hold back a movie for an enormous number of people to enjoy throughout the entire country that a few hundred, maybe a few thousand people could see the film in Paris? It seemed to me like the right thing to do was to give the people, our subscribers, who pay to make these movies, access to them immediately all over the world. They were fully aware of our release strategy.feedback

I've talked to Thierry many times and said this is where we'd like to show it.feedback

Arrested Development brings us structures, outerwear and choreography like no other comedy in history. Season four marked the first foray by Netflix into original comedy programming and this time, the Bluths will collectively be spending more quality time with their millions of fans around the world.feedback

Australia has such a rich production infrastructure and great talent, both in front of and behind the camera. There's no reason we should not [commission] original shows for Australia.feedback

Adam Sandler and Chris Rock are cornerstones of the Netflix comedy family and we are over the moon about these two legends reuniting to give our members worldwide a healthy dose of the hilarity that they have been creating together for years. Similar in the romantic comedy tone of Sandler's most recent film Sandy Wexler, this film will be the perfect vehicle for Sandler and Rock and their millions of fans around the world.feedback

This is a labor of love and a gift to the legacy of one of history's greatest directors.feedback

The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more, and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.feedback

We hope. We obviously loved the success of the show, fans loved how well it was done, it delivered what they hoped.feedback

The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.feedback

We acquired films ahead of Sundance so that we could really showcase them at the festival.feedback

An Oscar would be really great for the filmmakers. We've campaigned four times and it'd be really great to see it through to the finish line.feedback

We're keeping an eye on it. We are great partners with Apple on all their other initiatives and we're just trying to see how that's (TV app) going to roll out.feedback

That's an under-reported number. It was about a quarter of a billion dollars. We'll be able to figure out later what it was that made the show the show. It'll be interesting with [The] Grand Tour to see how much of that is the players, who in many cases are big personalities, but what elements of Top Gear will people miss?feedback

We have talked a lot about this over the years, and our belief is that broadband and Wi-Fi become more and more ubiquitous, available in more and more places that you are, more and more minutes of the day.feedback

We are producing original shows in local languages … But I think it's a local flavor for a global product. So I think what people really love universally is great storytelling and big production value. We see that in the way American films travel around the world. Our goal is not to export American television around the world, our goal is to export great storytelling from everywhere in the world, to everywhere else in the world.feedback

China is part of a very important business model for K-drama, sometimes realizing even more revenues for the K-drama in China than realizing in [South] Korea today. We continue to look at China as an opportunity, but it's a very complicated one.feedback

I'm very proud that Netflix shows are among the most diverse shows in the world.feedback

They got enormous Asian casts and the shows are being watched and loved from around the globe. In every one of our shows we got a very high level of diversity that we think accurately reflects the populations not just the view of the typical Hollywood casts. So we're absolutely doing well and pushing to do better in terms of diversity for the world.feedback
