Netflix vs. The World

Netflix vs. The World (2019)

IGN YouTube

“Today, Netflix is the 800-pound gorilla in streaming entertainment with a market cap over $200 billion. Yet, it was only twenty-odd years ago that Netflix started as one person’s crazy idea to rent movies through the mail. Those under age thirty might not realize that scrappy Netflix somehow took down the giant retailer Blockbuster (and Blockbuster even refused to buy Netflix outright in the early years for a paltry $50 million)”Kevin Kruse (Forbes)
