Did You Know

Did you know that 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Netflix's DVD rental services? While most of the focus nowadays is on stream-able, on-demand content, the vast selection of over 100k DVD's widely overshadows the 5,600+ titles available for streaming. DVD rentals also made an impressive $56M profit on $99M revenue in quarter one, however in the past 20 years, the number of DVD distribution centers has decreased from 50 to 17. This year, Netflix streaming via the internet turned only 11 years old, though for obvious reasons, shows more promising signs for accelerated future growth.


Have a great week and keep networking!
