According to my math that's at least $240 million revenue every month, that is impressive.

However, Reed Hastings wants his customers to know that his company is here to stay. In order to thank subscribers for their loyalty, the CEO took to Facebook to express his feelings.

I've been a DVD customer for 8 years, but no thanks for me.

chapelhillice

Congrats Netflix. Despite all the ups and downs and the desires for people for the service to improve, at $7.99 for streaming, dollar for dollar this is the best deal in entertainment.

Matt

Netflix, please add more good movies! The selection is getting pathetic!

Mr Mister

Yep, DVD only customer here as well. Where's my thanks! I helped build the company for you!

I don't do the "facesit" as well so posting his "news" there is of no use to me either.

cpr renewal

That is huge number of hits. Thanks

Tvaddic

I don't see how you all are mad about this, he did this because it is a huge number. If the dvd numbers were growing, he would showcase them.

Icahn purchases 10% stake in Netflix. Everyone wave goodbye to Hastings.

"Hastings remained positive about future growth" I'm glad someone is cause my stock is getting hammered!

Perkins Cobb

Yeah, dill-Reed, you actually have MORE than 30 million subscribers, but I guess we know once again which of us count and which don't.

Paul

I was just going to say that it didn't even mention us loyal DVD customer (aka cash cow) that has helped to fuel streaming and will provide Netflix the edge since they will also have DVD's for recent release. Until such time that Blu-Ray level streaming becomes available I will rent Blu-Ray movies.

Ethan

Please cry more about not being thanked for receiving service you decided was worth paying for.

I understand that we've all had our butts kissed enough in attempts to get our money that we expect thanks in return, but it's announcing a streaming milestone. Yes, streaming was built on DVD. And huge portions of Western Civilization was built on the culture and growth of the Roman Empire, but I don't think Caesar for the convenience of my electronics.

Obviously that's an extreme comparison, but the idea is the same.

Ethan

Edit - Don't thank Caesar

Mr Mister

I cancelled NF thanks to this article. I'll get my stuff from Amazon, BBO, Redbox & DirecTV.

Pretty sure everyone gets an email and a confirmation notice on screen when they sign up for a Netflix account (DVD and/or Streaming) that in addition to comfirming their signup/purchase there is a Thank You and Welcome to Netflix.

Just like nearly every other company you do business with...

Cry me a river.

Moviegeek65

Yeah these cry babies who complain over $7.99 a month will buy a $5 cup of coffee at Starbucks or rent a $1.25 Redbox movie several times a month, IMO $7.99 is a bargain.

Shari German

Moviegeek65, you cocksucker on whom I wish a slow death, the price isn't an issue. I could pay $2.99 or I could pay $19.99, and my sentiments would be the same, because it's a love and passion for cinema and not the 'bargain" that stirs me. And Netflix continues to scale back and dilute their service, which was once so great, as though they have contempt for all but the most brain-damaged, highest-volume droolers among their customer base. Moviegeek65, go jump in front of a speeding 18-wheeler you waste of space.

CordCutter

Again Shari, if you don't like it, don't use the service. To go off on such a rant about an entertainment service makes me question your mental stability. If you don't like it, don't pay.

I. P. Freely

The Netflix board is clearly failing in it's fiduciary duty to shareholders. Hastings has had a horrible couple of years now at the helm and by the Netflix rules for other employees, should be terminated. Instead, Netflix has adopted a poison pill to ward off Icahn and keep Hastings as CEO.

Get ready for another round of class action lawsuits against Netflix and this time, against the Netflix board.

bigqueue

I am Netflix DVD only now.. I got a deal in the mail for Amazon Prime for $59/year (technically $79 - $20 rebate credited to my credit card). I don't buy a TON of things a year from Amazon, but that's semi-interesting even just to play with their streaming (which I think works with PS3).
