I know I’m a little skeptical about Netflix when it comes to the future of its content business.
After all, Netflix has grown so much faster than its competitors that it has the potential to dominate in a few short years.
But in the past few years, I’ve noticed a few signs that Netflix is finally starting to learn from its mistakes and actually becoming a good business partner for the companies that make its content.
The company has already begun to show signs of trying to make its service more relevant to people outside of its traditional home country of the United States, and it is doing so by expanding into the Asian market, where it has already found a large and growing user base.
Netflix is also trying to improve its streaming experience on devices other than smartphones, tablets and PCs, in an effort to give its service the kind of attention and attention it deserves from consumers in the long run.
But Netflix isn’t always the best choice for content creators.
As its subscriber base has grown, so has its ability to make money from its original content.
That means Netflix is getting less money per subscriber than it used to.
In 2017, Netflix made $3.3 billion on its original shows and films.
That number was up from $2.8 billion in 2016, and in 2020, it made $4.3 million.
And that doesn’t include revenue from licensing fees from its other properties.
And in 2020 and 2017, those deals were largely a wash for Netflix, which made less money on the licensing side of things than it did on the original content side.
So the company is hoping that it can get more money from licensing deals in the future.
The Netflix team says it’s going to be better than ever in the years to come.
“In the coming years, we will be able to deliver more content, with more original content, and at a lower price than we ever have,” the company wrote in a recent earnings call.
“We will also be able deliver more original shows, and on a variety of platforms.”
It’s an ambitious goal.
Netflix currently makes around $1 billion a year from original shows.
If the company wants to continue to be competitive with the likes of Amazon, Hulu and Netflix, it’s definitely going to need to do a lot more to become a serious player in the streaming-video business.
But for now, it seems like Netflix’s new-found success will be enough to convince some other content creators that it’s worth investing in.
