AMAZON COSTS REVEALED
Posted: 061918

Spending a Lot on Programs is Equaling Increased Customers for the Company

The vast programming options now available for viewers gives them so many choices to watch TV that it’s hard to keep up with everything. Most streaming platforms keep the budgets for their shows and the ratings they draw a secret. Netflix is the exception and had no issue talking about the budgets of The Crown or The Get Down when the budgets became public. Amazon doesn’t do that but a new report from Reuters revealed that 26 million people watch their programming and their original shows have brought in five million new Prime subscribers as of early last year. The first seasons of the car-themed talk show The Grand Tour, the Philip K. Dick adaptation of The Man in the High Castle and the L.A. detective noir drama Bosch brought in a great deal of those viewers. The first season of High Castle drew in eight million viewers in the U.S. by the beginning of 2017 and added 1.15 million new Prime subscribers worldwide. The show cost Amazon $72 million to produce and market that first season. Season two ended up costing $107 million to make but drew the same ratings as season one. The budget for season one of Bosch was $47 million and $53 million for season two. The budget for season two of Mozart in the Jungle was $37 million. The budget for Goliath was $82 million for its first season. Transparent did get a lot of rewards but season one only drew four million viewers and season three only drew 1.3 million viewers. As Amazon looked at their numbers a decision was made to develop more mainstream projects and less niche ones. (Credit Dark Horizons and Reuters
