Netflix fires staff from ‘Tudum’ fan website – Reuters

Erik Gruenwedel

Netflix has started to downsize its fan website Tudum, which launched last September with ancillary articles about the streamer’s original series and movies. The site had hired entertainment reporters from Condé Nast and Time, among other publishing companies.

Netflix, in a press release, said Tudum (which refers to the streamer’s signature opening sound) remains a company priority, while making no official comment on the staff cuts. After a disappointing first quarter result that saw the streamer lose 200,000 subscribers and $53 billion in market valuation, the company is reacting internally.

Either way, some fired staff have aired their sentiment on social media.
