What does Netflix do?

Netflix is an international media-services provider which offers an online streaming television network. It is a production company which provides online content including television shows, TV series, full-length feature films (some of which are originally produced by Netflix itself), documentaries and short films which are all categorized according to different genres. These films are also available in different languages.

Netflix allows users to stream online content through a variety of Internet-connected platforms which include mobile phones, televisions, computers, digital video players and game consoles. It has standard account and subscription rates per month which vary from country to country.

The online digital company operates in three different segments: domestic streaming, international streaming and domestic DVD. Domestic streaming includes services that are exclusive to Netflix customers in the United States. The international streaming, on the other hand offers its online streaming services to its clients who are non-U.S. citizens. Domestic DVD include rental services where film DVDs can be delivered to customer’s homes.

Netflix offers its services to millions of customers worldwide. It has over 148 million active subscribers in over 190 countries as of April 2019.

History

Netflix was founded in 1997 in Scotts Valley, California. It started as a DVD sales and rental-by-mail business enterprise. One year later the company focused on its DVD rental business and continued to expand in the succeeding years as it ventured into the online media streaming industry for films while maintaining the DVD and Blu-ray rental business at the same time.

The company’s online streaming of films was inspired by the then booming e-commerce business of Amazon which was delivering different goods and merchandise via the Internet.

Netflix was officially launched in 1998 as it continued to offer online DVD rentals. It started to deliver online content through a pay-per-rent model with a total of 925 film titles.

In 1999 the company attempted to venture in a monthly subscription payment system for users but later dropped even their original per-title rental payment system one year later. Eventually it established its business rental model without late fees or due dates as well as shipping and handling fees of the DVDs that it offered.

Netflix had an initial public offering (IPO) in 2002 as it was able to sell 5.5 million shares of stock and an additional of 825, 000 shares at US$15 per share during the same year.

By 2005 the company has acquired over 35, 000 different films which they had made available through their network. It has also continued to ship out 1 million DVDs every day during this time.

Netflix further promoted its online streaming services internationally in Canada, Latin America and the Carribean in 2010. Two years later it made a bold move to actively produce and distribute its own films, streaming its “Netflix Originals” and releasing “Lilyhammer” as its debut film series. Since then it has played a significant role in the independent and original film production and distribution.

In 2014 Netflix has reached a total of 50 million international subscribers with operations across 41 countries globally. Two more years later it has expanded its services to 150 additional countries with the exception of China, which has certain restrictions in its media services.

Founders

Netflix was founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph. Hastings is a computer scientist and mathematician who served as the marketing director for Pure Atria. Randolph, on the other hand was the co-founder of MicroWarehouse, a computer mail order business enterprise.

Who owns Netflix?

Wilmot Reed Hastings Jr., who is also one of the founders of Netflix currently owns the online film streaming company. He is also the current Chairman and CEO of Netflix.

It has also contributed in the production of animated family films and shows, with its initial collaboration with DreamWorks Animation and co-production of Turbo Fast in 2013.

Netflix is a member of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and continues to be in close partnership and collaboration with different producers and distributors, which include 20th Century Fox Television, BBC Earth, CBS Corporation, Disney, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, Relativity Media and the Weinstein Company among others.

The company believes in a “freedom and responsibility culture” for its workforce as it measures its success by what its employees gets done and continues to empower and boost their morale to increase their productivity.

Why is Netflix called Netflix?

The company name is a combination or blending of two words: “net” from the word Internet and “flix,” a, shortened version for flicks which is synonymous to films.

  1. Hi, I have a show idea. I live in Calgary where there was a huge fraud done by Shariff Chandran while he was director of Platinum Equites. 160 Million lost to Alberta Residents. The ASC did a investigation , many people charged/fined. If you google his name , lots of information. As well another guy involved shot outside his mansion in Calgary. His name is Raiz Mamdami. You can google his name as well. A class Action lawsuit going on involving the 2200 people effected. The RCMP of Alberta did a Investigation and charged Chandran with fraud and according to sources will be sentenced to jail time . His hearing is this week where 12 people have to give victim statements .

    • Netflix should move the headquarters to Virginia because it’s a right to work state. All those people walking out because of the Dave Chappelle series is ridiculous. They have a job to do. They need to do it or they just don’t have a job. I know that I can’t just walk out of my job and protest. If I tried I wouldn’t have a job. I can’t afford that so I go to work.

  2. To: The staff at Netflix Thank you so much for all your hard work during this very difficult 18 months. I joined in the UK at the beginning of the ‘Lock down’ with the help of a young neighbour who is great with the computer. As you can tell I am elderly and for the last 18 months Netflix has been a lifeline to me. I have so enjoyed your Korean programmes they are outstanding. They remind me of the quality of the old ‘Hollywood’ films of my youth. Great actors, great filming and I am hoping that Stranger 3 will be made and also So Ji Sub’s latest programme the Dr Lawyer will be on Netflix UK – a lot of his dramas are shown on other Netflix sites and it would be great if you could consider showing them on the UK site. Thank you again Netflix – kind regards Ann

    • Why are there so many good movies that Netflix chooses to show that require an interpreter to understand? Is there a way to be able to choose what language an individual wants the movie to listened to and also without having to read the translation on the screen which is impossible to keep up with. This would be very helpful to a great many people and would also let people have a better outlook on Netflix as a hole. Thank you for any assistance in this matter.

  4. Why is the DVD dept only contact is only through a phone? Deaf users have to find someone to ‘speak’ or ‘listen’ to get something done. I’m one that supports any tech that helps us deaf customers to get what is needed without any hassles. I think this is not going to make American Civil Liberties Union happy.
    I do not like the method of billing without using a physical address. Canceling should be simple, but it is not!

  6. Netflix is seeing its biggest loss of subscribers Jan. thru March. Well, maybe if you added something new every now and than. Raising the price now was a bad move. Greed pure and simple.
