Netflix now has 100 million subscribers

In January 2017, it was estimated that if all goes well, then Netflix will pass the 100 million subscriber point sometime in April 2017. Right on time, the company CEO Reed Hastings announced that the streaming video giant had passed the 100 million subscriber milestone. He celebrated by having a steak dinner at Denny’s, just like he did when Netflix passed one million subscribers. Given the international footprint, I think it is yet another reason for Apple to seriously consider Netflix as an acquisition. Apple was the first one to build a global content marketplace with iTunes. There are just so many synergies in these companies — except from what I am told, Reed is an Android man!
