Netflix is dominating the Sunset Strip

Member exclusive by David Yanofsky in Los Angeles for Streaming Wars

It’s a curving conduit frequented by movie stars, studio executives, agents, and all other industry folks to shuttle between homes in the Hollywood hills, agencies and offices in Beverly Hills, and studios in Hollywood. This 1.7 mile section of Sunset Blvd known as the Sunset Strip is packed dense with billboards trying to grab these tastemakers’ attention. First among the advertisers is Netflix, which not only advertises on more billboards than any other content company or conglomerate but also owns more of the billboards than any other company, squeezing out its competitors.

It’s too early to fully understand just how Netflix is going to leverage its billboards. The company has owned them for less than a year but the billboards are seen as the most valuable advertising space in Los Angeles.
