Netflix: net income 2000-2020

Video streaming giant Netflix had a total net income of over 2.76 billion U.S. dollars in 2020, whilst the company's annual revenue reached 25 billion U.S. dollars. The number of Netflix's streaming subscribers worldwide has continued to grow in recent years, reaching 204 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Five years earlier, in the fourth quarter of 2015, the figure stood at 74.76 million subscribers.

The growth of Netflix

Netflix was launched in the United States in 1998, functioning as a digital DVD rental store and placing itself squarely in competition with Blockbuster. The company launched its streaming video service in 2007, and just over a decade later Netflix secured the title of the streaming service with the most subscribers in the world. Netflix now offers a wealth of original content as well as content from niche and emerging directors, multiple foreign-language movies and a significant amount of highly-acclaimed and popular films from Hollywood and other markets.

Netflix’s worldwide video content budget surpassed 12 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, marking a five-fold increase since 2013. The streaming platform has become known for its many original shows reaching fans across the globe, including ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Orange is the New Black’, and ’13 Reasons Why’.
