Netflix broadcasts unscripted reality shows such as The Circle , but Deadline reports that they plan to stream them live.
Netflix is reportedly planning to broadcast live Netflix-sponsored events such as the dance competition series 'Dance 100' and ' Netflix Is A Joke Fest .'
In addition, Netflix has the potential to revive the latest series of reality show ' Selling Sunset-Hollywood, Dream Luxury Property- ' as livestream content, Deadline points out. The sequel to 'Selling Sunset-Hollywood, Dream Luxury Property-' has not been delivered since Season 5 was delivered in 2019.

Netflix has already distributed multiple reality programs and social experiment programs that are suitable for live distribution, but rival service Disney + will acquire the distribution right of the dance reality program ' Dancing with the Stars '. We are engaged in a fierce competition for content with competing services.
When Netflix becomes able to roll out livestreaming services, the next focus will be 'whether or not to support livestreaming of sports,' Deadline points out. 'Given the success of the F1 documentary series Formula 1: The Grand Prix of Glory, it's natural to think that Netflix will start livestreaming sports,' Deadline wrote.
Another media, Mashable, said, 'Given Netflix's recent reduction in paying membership, it makes a lot of sense to offer livestream content as a new service following the introduction of a new plan for advertising ants. It seems like it's done. ' It also points out that livestreaming services and dedicated content can attract new users and help existing users stay in the service.

According to sources, Netflix's livestream content is 'only a small group in the company is in the preparatory stage of development', and it is unknown when it will be implemented.
