    Instant Dream Home Netflix Home Improvement Show

    Instant Dream Home

    This new show from Netflix has similar elements of other popular feel-good home improvement shows (e.g. Extreme Home Makeover), where family, friends and neighbors nominate deserving homeowners and their families to receive life altering home improvements and renovations. What sets this show apart is the adjective “Instant” –as in one day, as in specifically just 12 hours! However, a few months of planning are completed prior to the scheduled one day installation.

    Early feedback indicates that most viewers like the design reveals and human interest storylines. However, many viewers have become jaded on these types of home improvement shows due to being aware of too many behind-the-scenes horror stories – e.g. poor construction methods due to unrealistic time schedules and not being able to afford taxes on the upgrades. We think it’s well past time for Mike Holmes to launch a new show, something along the lines of Make It Right: Feel-Good Renovation Shows!

    Are any HGTV shows available on Netflix?

    No HGTV shows are currently available on Netflix, nor have they been for several years. HGTV decided to not renew their distribution partnership with Netflix at the end of 2016, which became effective in early January 2017. Reasons cited were HGTV’s significant growth and their desire to not be constrained by this partnership. When HGTV had a smaller audience, it was necessary for them to rely on distribution partnerships, like Netflix. HGTV’s content is playing a key role in the Discovery+ streaming platform launched in January 2021.
