Netflix subscriber growth improves in Q3, sees strong finish to 2021

Wednesday 20 October 2021 | 08:26 CET | News
Netflix reported better-than-expected results for the third quarter, with 4.38 million new streaming subscribers added compared to a forecast for around 3.5 million. Revenues rose 16.3 percent to USD 7.48 billion, and operating profit was 23.5 percent higher than a year ago at USD 1.76 billion. Netflix attributed the growth to an improved content line-up compared to the slow first half of the year and said it expects a strong finish to 2021.
