Netflix has been adding a lot of original content and boy has it been paying off. Netflix is now competing in a world where Showtime and HBO offer streaming video over the internet too, so they have to keep competing.
So today’s earnings results are super impressive and important for the company. As usual, the company focused on its push for original, exclusive content. And as usual, it has paid off nicely.
Now up to 65 million members worldwide (with 42 million in the US), Netflix mentioned that the debut of Orange is the New Black season 3 resulted in viewers watching a record number of hours for one day the following Sunday, the same day as HBO’s Game of Thrones finale and an NBA Finals game.
When you are matching numbers with HBO and the NBA finals, you know that you are doing something right. A great many things in fact. I can’t help but wonder what kinds of shows are next for the streaming company. We know some of what is coming up soon, but most likely the best is yet to come. I for one can’t wait. Quality TV is back thanks to streaming providers like Netflix and others.
