Despite falling short of its own guidance for Q1 2017, Netflix is on the verge of passing a major milestone in terms of its subscriber base. The world’s leading video streaming service will soon pass 100 million subscribers. Having added 5 million customers in the first three months of 2017, Netflix expects to sign up its 100 millionth member as early as next weekend.
As our chart illustrates, Netflix has come a long way since starting to offer video streaming to its DVD subscribers in 2007. Now available in more than a 100 countries, Netflix’s subscriber base has grown increasingly international over the years. The number of international subscribers will likely surpass domestic subscribers sometime this year.
