What is Netflix?
If you’ve ever had cable TV, then you’d have an idea of what Netflix is all about. To the uninitiated, Netflix is like cable TV of the Internet. It’s a movie streaming website that’s subscription based payable in monthly tranches. The great thing about Netflix is that subscribers can watch television series or movies from around the world.
Founded in the midst of the dotcom bust in 1997, Netflix survived the bubble and forged its way onto the desktops and later on, Internet enabled television sets of its subscribers. Today it is worth $152 billion dollars surpassing Comcast and Disney. It has two founders, Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph.
Subscribers can opt to watch as much as they can and even binge watch entire seasons of their favorite shows. Netflix also produces its own movies.
