Customers pay a monthly fee to watch unlimited TV shows and movies available online without any commercial interruptions.

Despite the company’s week third quarter guidance, Netflix has been busy with continuous investments in exclusive and original content, such as Orange is the New Black and Bojack Horseman. With that being said, Netflix will likely reach its objective of domestic and international user base, as well as achieve higher profits during the upcoming quarters.

  1. Beside stand up comedy and documentary anything else? No. Netflix is acting like the domestic market is acquired and wants to expand in highly regulated and already saturated international market. Netflix won the heart of $31 million Americans for a many reasons: easy subscription/cancellation instantaneously, flexible could watch it wherever and able to produce 2 good originals, no competition and could order new movies by mail But, these reasons are fading and there is a significant risk of shrinking domestic memberships. Easy subscription and cancellation is a sword with double edges easy come easy go, now-people can watch many streaming sites as cheap as Netflix or anonymously for free ( I am personally against free sites but they are very popular) furthermore, even your cable subscription can be streamed wherever, no good output for new originals by Netflix just stand up comedies and documentaries, dying DVD by Mail segment. So, Netflix looks like Rom, a crumbling empire so busy to conquer that lost The motherland.
