Major streaming services such as Netflix offer thousands of hours of content to audiences across the globe. What influence does this content have on society? How have streaming services changed what it means to ‘watch’ TV? Does global content provide a narrow representation of people and places around the world? Streaming services influence what type of information people learn and from whom they learn it. Although there are many streaming services, the influence of the largest companies is tremendous. Should we be concerned? How can we bring our MIL skills to our media consumption?
