International Netflix subscribers to overtake US in 2018

Tuesday 23 August 2016 | 15:33 CET | News
Netflix's recent territorial expansion is set to push the streaming service provider's customer base from the current figure of 79.9 million to the 100 million mark by 2018, according to new data from IHS. In fact, by that year international subscribers will overtake the number of subscribers in the US for the first time, before growing to 75 million by 2020, said the researcher. The number of Netflix International paying subscribers will grow some 38 percent in 2016, with more than 2.8 million of them coming from the new markets that Netflix launched in at the beginning of this year.
