Netflix is a streaming service which has become one of the most important platforms and has managed to make important changes in the way series and movies are watched and enjoyed.
Its great success has led other large companies to launch their own streaming services, such as Disney+ and HBO, however, they have not managed to have the same reach, either in subscribers or in having such a large catalog.
Although it began as a company that offered DVD rental services through postal mail, it was in 2011 when the company began operations outside the United States and Canada, offering its catalog via streaming in Latin America and the Caribbean. A year later it would also reach some countries in Europe and later Asia.
In 2011 the company ventured to start producing its own content that started with the successful series House of Cardswhich led her to create her studio in 2016. By 2018 it would already be defined as a global internet television network.
Its catalog includes films that have won Academy Awards, multi-award-winning and viral series such as Squid Game, or important products in Spanish such as La casa de papel. The first time Netflix managed to be nominated for an Oscar was in 2014 thanks to the documentary The Square.
It is important to note that the content that Netflix varies by region or time, so some titles may not be available in some regions than others.
The productions available on Netflix can be enjoyed on smartTVs, video game consoles, decoders, smartphones, computers, tablets and more. The platform also has various packages that, depending on the cost, will limit the number of times you can watch content on various devices simultaneously, whether you can enjoy it in HD, FHD or UHD, and more.
