Netflix Streaming Service. As a member of the Motion Picture Association, has become the top streaming service. This is an American media company based in Los Gatos, California.
Netflix Streaming Service
This platform shows a different number of original streaming television shows that come in different categories, which are original series, specials, miniseries, films, and documentaries. And it is accessible on different devices.
How it all began
The first and initial startup of Netflix was selling and renting DVDs by mail in the year 1998, which was later terminated a year into the business. In 2007, Netflix introduced another business plan, which was the streaming service.
Well, the new business plan of Netflix got them to where they are now. In less than many years of coming into the business where other existing streaming services exist, Netflix managed to swoop all other streaming services out and become the number one streaming service in the whole world.
What Makes Netflix Unique?
Well, that is a question we should ask, because how can a renting service turn into a subscription service? And becomes the best at the subscription service. Here are some of the factors that make Netflix unique and different.
The technology of Netflix gives viewers the opportunity to view content on different devices and anywhere. Availability and comfort—what we are talking about is when you get to stream from any compatible device from the comfort of anywhere.
Subscription: you get access to your favorite movies, series, documentaries, and so much entertainment, all at a low cost monthly. Video quality: you cannot get a video with low-quality content on Netflix; every video has good quality.
The subscription cost Netflix offers depends on what feature you want.
- Basic with ads: $6.99 per month. With this subscription, you get to stream on one device, and the video resolution would be 720p.
- Just Basic: $9.99 per month With this subscription, you get to still stream from one device and download content from another device, both at 720p resolution.
- Standard: $15.49 per month, this subscription allows you to watch in HD and stream content from a TV, laptop, or phone. You can download content from two devices and watch content on two different screens.
- Premium: $19.99 per month. With this subscription, you get to enjoy HD and Ultra HD resolution, stream from four screens, and download on four different devices. (I believe this should be the best subscription of all.)
