Kemper and her parents even have seperate Netflix passwords, she told Jen Rogers on Yahoo Finance’s “My Three Cents.” Still, she added, “I would like my Netflix account to be comped.”
“The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” an off-beat comedy about a woman who moves to New York City after being rescued from a doomsday cult, was one of Netflix’s first original comedy series.
Kemper, whose show recently came to an end, realizes a lot has changed in the streaming world since the “Kimmy Schmidt” premiered in 2015.
“The time we joined to the time we're now ending the show, it has exploded. I feel overwhelmed, to be frank, by the number of options of shows and movies to watch right now. And I don't know enough about the strategy or the economy any of the behind the scenes things that go on at these streaming platforms. But it really, so much has changed in such a short amount of time. I feel lucky to have been a part of it. Especially to get in at the beginning.”
Kemper subscribes to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime (AMZN), HBO GO (T), and even CBS All Access (CBS). As Kemper put it, “I wanted to watch some old Colberts. Or maybe I wanted to watch ... I know what I wanted to watch. Some old Lettermans. It was during his last year and I had missed a bunch. So I joined and now I've done the thing, they like reeled me in. I still pay them. I keep forgetting to cancel it.”
