Hunting profiteers: it pays for Netflix

The third quarter was positive for Netflix, no doubt thanks to its recent crackdown on password sharing.

A few days ago, Webdush estimated that Netflix would have 5.5 million new subscribers in the third quarter. Well missed!

+8.8 million Netflix subscribers in the third quarter

The platform recently announced its quarterly results and this figure finally reached 8.8 million. Netflix thus reaches 247.1 million subscribers worldwide. For comparison, the number of new subscribers was only 2.4 million at the same time last year. We can therefore deduce that the platform's recent policy - to hunt down password sharing - has paid off. In fact, a significant proportion of those who stopped using other people's accounts for free preferred to take out their own subscription.

Netflix turnover up to +9% in the third quarter

In passing, turnover increased by 9% compared to the same period last year, thanks in particular to the new pricing for account sharing (you now have to pay more to benefit from your password). move on to someone else).
