Netflix subscriber growth slows to 4 mln net additions in Q1, sees better H2

Wednesday 21 April 2021 | 08:29 CET | News
Netflix reported a sharp slowdown in subscriber growth in the fourth quarter, adding just under 4 million customers compared to a forecast of around 6 million. The company said it suffered from the comparison with a strong Q1 last year when the coronavirus lockdowns first started as well as a weaker content slate for the first half of this year due to Covid-related production delays. While Q2 customer additions are forecast at only 1 million, the company expects growth to pick up in the second half of the year as more new titles come online.

I'm considering dropping my subscription as Netflix makes it so hard to find suitable viewing in my native language, English. I sometimes watch subtitled shows and movies, but prefer my language. You spend ages looking for something that appeals, only to discover it's not in English, and sometimes I can't be bothered with subtitles, as it can take away from the viewing experience. If I want to read a story, I'll buy the book. Give customers the choice of what's presented to them, Netflix.
