The Sun reports that Simon Cowell has set up a meeting with streaming giant Netflix to discuss producing content for the company.
Simon is set to get together with Netflix execs in September with a view to producing new talent show formats.
A source told the paper: “Simon’s moving with the times and thinks that his formats could work for Netflix.
“A meeting with his team and their Content Acquisition team has been pencilled in for September.
“Simon has a proven track record of success with Got Talent and The X Factor – but he wants to move with the times and see what Netflix think of some of their new TV ideas.
“They still believe there is life in talent shows and Simon is keen to see if they could make something work on Netflix.
It’s early days but it’s all very exciting. Simon is an ideas man and loves when his team come up with wacky new ideas.
“And they think Netflix could be the perfect home for some of their ideas.”
Simon’s possible move towards streaming services comes only weeks after he bought back the rights to his existing TV shows from Sony.
Sony previously owned a share of Syco Entertainment in a joint venture that had seen success since 2004.
