Netflix has become the most important streaming platform in recent years and its success has led most entertainment companies to promote their own platforms, such as Disney+ and HBO, among others.
Although started as a company that offered DVD rental service through postal mail, it was in 2011 when the company started operations outside the United States and Canada, by offering its catalog by streaming in Latin America and the Caribbean. A year later it would also reach some countries in Europe and later in Asia.
In 2011 the company ventured to start producing its own content that started with the successful series House of cards, which led it to create its studio in 2016. By 2018 it would already be defined as a global internet television channel .
Previously, on January 16, 2014, one of the most important moments arrived for Netflix: be nominated for the first time in their history for an Oscar with the documentary The Square.
Its catalog includes films that have been winners of an Academy Award, multi-award-winning and viral series such as Squid Game, or important products in Spanish such as Money Heist and Elite.
However, 2022 did not paint anything well for the streaming content platform that received its biggest hit in a decade and it is that in the first quarter it lost up to 200 thousand subscribers, which were added to the 900 thousand viewers who also left the platform in the second quarter of the year.
That minor setback was “fixed” in the third quarter, when it posted a gain of 2.4 million subscribers fueled by titles like Dahmer, a new season of Stranger Things and other hits.
