Quarterly number of Netflix subscribers in the Netherlands 2014-2019

How many Dutch subscribers does Netflix have? According to survey information (as Netflix itself does not share this type of information), more than three million people used the streaming service in the fourth quarter of 2019. This in an overall population of over 17 million. Netflix ranked among the most frequently used online video platforms in the Netherlands. Subscriber numbers slowed down in the Netherlands, due to high penetration, but was still growing.

Users are most likely young, who watch Netflix on a smart TV

On average, Dutch consumers spent 85 minutes per day watching Netflix in 2017. Viewing time was highest among the 18-to 34-year-olds with roughly ten more minutes than respondents older than 50. People preferred to use a smart TV for watching Netflix movies and series. The use of a Google Chromecast or Apple TV was less common in the Netherlands.

What about other VOD platforms in the Netherlands?

Netflix subscriptions exceeded that of domestic streaming services in 2017. Roughly 2.4 million households paid a subscription fee to Netflix, whereas subscriber numbers of other providers (such as Videoland, NPO Start Plus or NLZIET) did not exceed 400,000.
