HBO boss on Netflix: “They’re in the volume business, we’re in the curation business"
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys took aim at Netflix at the INTV conference in Jerusalem, saying HBO's brand of curation offers something valuable to producers and subscribers in a saturated TV marketplace. "That curation is more valuable now than it was five years ago, as we doubled the amount of scripted series, knowing you’re going to a place where you’re going to have a proper launch and attention paid to,” says Bloys.
