Because of this change in timing, Netflix guided for strong subscriber adds in the second quarter, including 850,000 domestic adds and 2.8 million global adds, both of which were higher than Graham's previous estimate. During which, Netflix has scored 72 million more subscribers.

Netflix came up short of its subscriber forecasts for this quarter, but the SVOD says the slower growth early in 2017 isn't cause for concern.
Netflix may know something the rest of the world doesn't in terms of its second quarter, but if 100 million subscribers is in the cards for this weekend, it certainly looks like the SVOD will move ahead of its projections.

Other than Netflix and Stan, customers will also have access to music streaming service Pandora Plus, which will include a free three-month trial.
"The company is actually trying to manage down the amount of content that it's licensing from other people", Graham said. "We are super excited".
Netflix saw 98.8 million total members in the first quarter, a 21% increase over the year-ago period.
"The opportunity provided to us by the growth of the global internet is very big and our plan is to keep investing as we increase membership, revenue and operating margins", Netflix CEO Reed Hastings wrote in the quarterly shareholders letter.
Netflix said its recent release of the Dave Chappelle specials "The Age of Spin" and "Deep in the Heart of Texas" were among its most viewed comedy specials. "We definitely have YouTube envy". He further stated entertainment is more about winning fans with content and it isn't a zero-sum game.

Amazon will reportedly spend $4.5 billion on original content, which, again, seems like an astronomical figure when you consider Amazon Prime Video doesn't have the same volume as Netflix when it comes to their original content.
Mr Hastings sees Netflix and rival Amazon Prime Video as competing more with people's limited viewing time than they are with each other. Since then its subscriber base has grown rapidly, and five million new customers signed up for its streaming service in the first three months of 2017 alone. Starting this year, we can be primarily measured by revenue growth and (global) operating margins as our primary metrics.
Netflix's marketing budget has almost doubled over the past few years from $607,186 in 2014 to a forecast of more than $1 billion this year.
