The number of subscribers of Netflix, the video streaming platform with the world’s highest subscribers, has been announced. According to the latest shared data, Netflix currently has 203.6 million subscribers.
Founded in California by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in 1997, Netflix has become one of today’s most popular video streaming services with new original content, new investments and new projects every year. It is now one of the biggest as it is one of the first in this industry. It was already known that it had a clear rise in 2020. Now, the data for the fourth quarter of 2020 has been announced.
With the release of the fourth quarter data, Netflix left one more target behind. Netflix added 8.5 million more paid subscribers to its platform in the last three months of 2020, exceeding 200 million subscribers in total. The current number of net subscribers is 203.6 million.
Thanks to this, Netflix gained $ 25 billion in revenue by gaining 37 million paid subscribers in 2020 alone. It is useful to remind. All Netflix subscription plans count only as one subscription. In other words, the accounts used by 4 people together; It counts as 1 person, not 4 people.
Although the number of Netflix subscribers has increased significantly, success in 2020 is not expected in 2021. Last year, especially the pandemic connected all people to the home. People will start to return to their old lives due to the vaccinations made this year. In addition, Netflix now has two serious rivals: Disney + and HBO Max.
We know Disney + is gaining subscribers very quickly right now, and it hasn’t quite started releasing its more exclusive content. The actual expected content will be published this year. HBO Max, on the other hand, will release all major Warner Bros films this year on the platform in the release date, with the surprise decision of Warner Bros. In short, Netflix’s job is extremely difficult this year.
