Netflix StatisticsNetflix is an amazing digital success story. Starting out more than 20 years ago as a predominantly DVD subscription service by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, Netflix was able to pivot along the way and take advantage of rapidly evolving mobile technology and ever-improving internet speeds to become one of the largest video distribution networks on the planet.

Today, Netflix has pushed beyond distribution of third party movies and television and has become a major player in content creation. They stand as one of the powerhouses in global entertainment and, as one can imagine, this gives us many different angles to measure their success and growth by.

Here is what we currently know about the company that made "cord-cutting" and "binge watching" commonplace digital industry terms. I hope you find this data helpful.
