Netflix would initially have another name, and it was strange enough it would be called Keeble. Netflix co-founder and first CEO Mark Randolph talked about this in an interview: “At first, I was very concerned about creating a service that looked good, but no one would want to use it.”
“So I chose the name Kibble to remind me of an old ad that said: No matter how good your feed advertising campaign, dogs don’t eat dog food.”
Although Netflix was created in 1997, its first website was launched only in 1998. However, at that time, the service had a different function, and it was not yet possible for users to watch movies from their computers.
A DVD rental service offering began on Netflix from 1999, with users choosing the movies they wanted to watch on the website, receiving them at home, and returning them through the post office, in an envelope provided by Netflix done. This was a great service for those who did not have a rental shop near the house, or for those who wanted more comfort.
It is hard to imagine Netflix without its original productions, but the truth is that they actually premiered only in 2013. The first three series produced by the streaming service were House of Cards, Hemlock Grove and Orange is the New Black.
Despite starting with its original productions less than a decade ago, as I mentioned above, Netflix has dramatically increased its production, from 2013 to 2021, the streaming service accumulated a total of 1500 original productions And with a huge investment, that number will continue to grow very rapidly.
In 2016, Netflix was launched internationally at the CES 2016 event, announced during a lecture by the company’s co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings:
“Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global TV network on the Internet. With this launch, consumers from around the world, from Singapore to St. Petersburg, San Francisco to Sao Paulo, will be able to watch TV shows and movies together, now and Will not have to wait.
It is no longer news that many people have a password-sharing practice, although this is not true, it is common, and Netflix is trying to fight it. What scares the percentage of people who use the service without pay. According to research firm MoffettNathanson, 41% of Netflix users pay nothing.
In 2017 Netflix won its first Oscar, the award for Best Documentary in a short film for the film The White Helmets. Since then, countless films have been awarded, such as: The Story of a Wedding, Rome, If Anything Happens I Love You, The Supreme Voice of the Blues, others.
Exactly a year after winning its first Oscar, Netflix overtook HBO in the number of Emmy nominations, which is incredible as the channel has always dominated the awards. In 2020, Netflix received 53 more nominations from HBO.
As the popularity and number of Netflix subscribers have increased in huge proportions, it is clear that television will always be strong, but a survey has been done in the United States and people are preferring to pay for Netflix subscriptions than cable TV Huh.
