One of the first departments to feel the effects of Netflix’s poor performance was its animation division, which was reportedly gutted, and now, the streaming service is laying off employees at its Tudum website. The site launched in 2021 to engage fans with behind-the-scenes content and announcements for new shows and movies.

Staff from Tudum have been posting about how they’ve been laid off.

Others explained how Netflix threw money at journalists it courted for the site, only to see it fall like a house of cards months later.

“Our fan website Tudum is an important priority for the company,” said a spokesperson. They did not clarify how many were laid off but said the website is still a priority. At least 10 to 15 staff were reportedly let go.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
