Netflix feels pain as global subscriber growth slows

Netflix said on Wednesday it lost US streaming customers for the first time in eight years and missed targets for new subscribers overseas. Netflix shares tanked nearly 12 per cent in after-hours trading after the company posted quarterly results that showed it shed 130,000 U.S. customers from April to June. It added 2.83 million paid streaming subscribers outside the US.

I dunno about other countries, but here we had a big spike on the fee and yet get less shows thsn the US. That does not grow the business.

Quit making shows about racism, and gay propaganda, and other SJW brainwash trash.

Netflix isn't very good at taking criticism, they changed a whole rating system because people didn't like Amy Schumers comedy special.

Netlix has sold out to the political left. Having Obama with the company is a big mistake, as his socialist and Islamist ideology only adds to the overwhelming bias growing in leftist corporations like Netflix against traditional family and American values. There is almost no place for the inclusivity, diversity, and equity of anyone not left of center. As a result, I hope they go out of business, with more fair companies rising up to take their place.

Let them crash and burn. After I saw their LGBT category added to toggle through years ago I cancelled. They wanna try to shove that garbage in my face when I never watched anything remotely homoerotic? 😆 Got better things to spend $1//mo on.

Why are we losing subscribers?! All we're doing is gradually raising prices while possessing less content!

My heart bleeds for them. Or it would, were they not constantly putting up their prices. I don't buy the argument that it allows them provide better content, it doesn't, it allows them provide more content but the average quality keeps decreasing.
