Every once in a while, I like to microwave a batch of popcorn, sit down in my favorite comfortable chair, and binge out on Netflix. Sometimes, there is no better way to unwind after a stressful day than to relax and enjoy some of the shows that the company has on its menu. Its my way of escaping the "real" world and entering the world of entertainment.
Well apparently many other people enjoy doing the same thing! According to a recent CNNtech article, Netflix now has an astounding 125 million subscribers! This despite the fact that the company hiked prices by 10% in December, 2017, to $10.99/month for standard service. Furthermore, Netflix intends to spend $8 billion in the coming year to produce new original content. That's up from $6 billion last year.
During the first quarter of this year, Netflix produced 18 original series, 11 new seasons of existing series, and 14 original movies. The company plans to have 700 program available for the coming year! I don't know about you, but I think I better go buy some more popcorn!
