Netflix: What Exactly Is It And How Does It Work?

Thinking online streaming. Thought Netflix?

In 1997, Reed Hastings, along with Marc Randolph founded "Netflix." An American media-service provider, it is the leading subscription service across the world for watching TV episodes and movies on your favorite device. The Netflix mobile application gives you the best experience anywhere, anytime.

Netflix has played an important role in independent film distribution. Netflix expanded its business in 2007 but before that, its initial business included the DVD sales and rental by mail. Netflix expanded its business by introducing streaming media and retaining the DVD and Blu-ray rental business. Since 2012 it has been offering a variety of "Netflix Original" content through its online library, as it has acquired the role of an active producer and distributor of both movies as well as TV series.

 

By 2016, Netflix services are operating in more than 190 countries.
