Netflix, membership increase for the first time in three quarters, hit work contributed at the end of September

[New York] Netflix, a major US video distribution company, announced on the 18th that the number of paying subscribers worldwide reached 223.09 million as of the end of September this year, an increase of 2.42 million from the end of June. It was the first time in three quarters that the number of members increased. Hits such as “Stranger Things” contributed to the increase, which greatly exceeded the expected increase of 1 million.
By region, Asia performed particularly well. It was also positive in North America, where competition with Walt Disney and Apple is fierce. With the launch of a low-price plan with advertisements in 12 countries including Japan and the United States in November, it is expected that the number of members will increase by 4.5 million in the three months until the end of December.
