They started looking into on-demand streaming after noticing youtube's success. By April 2014, they had 50 million international subscribers. In 2016, they announced an expansion to over 150 countries. They also announced that were blocking VPNs.
Netflix competes with Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and several others.
