The Pandemic has Been Good for Netflix
Since the pandemic started in mid-March, sitting at home watching TV has been the thing we do the most. Netflix has seen a massive increase in subscribers.
As reported by KXXV, Netflix is reporting 10.1 million new subscribers in the April to June time frame. That's more than triple what they usually get. That brings their total subscribers to 193 million worldwide.
Now, I'm sure that HULU, Disney+, and every other subscription based streaming services have also seen boosts since mid-March, but Netflix reigns supreme, and why not? There are so many really good choices on the service.
At my house we use Netflix, Hulu, and Showtime/Starz. We very rarely watch anything but Netflix. In fact, my que is loaded with movies and shows that should keep us watching throughout the rest of the year.
Some of my favorites include Stranger Things, Ozark, Money Heist, Mindhunter, Lost in Space, You, and The Haunting of Hill House, just to name a few.
Netflix has said that with shooting delays in Hollywood, we should expect some delays in getting new movies and shows to watch but really, with the back catalog of stuff available to binge now, there really is no shortage of available programming to catch up on.
