Netflix has become the most important streaming platform in recent years and its success has led most entertainment companies to promote their own platforms, such as Disney+ and HBO, among others.

Even if started as a business that offered a DVD rental service by mail, it was in 2011 that the company started operations outside the United States and Canada, offering its streaming catalog in Latin America and the Caribbean. A year later, it would also reach some countries in Europe and later in Asia.

In 2011, the company ventured to start producing its own content which began with the hit series House of cards, which led to it establishing its studio in 2016. In 2018, it would already define itself as a global internet tv channel.

Previously, on January 16, 2014, one of the most important moments arrived for Netflix: be nominated for the first time in their history for an Oscar with the documentary The Square.

Its catalog includes Oscar-winning films, multi-award winning and viral series such as Squid Game, or important products in Spanish such as Money Heist and Elite.

However, 2022 hasn’t painted anything good for the streaming content platform that received its biggest hit in a decade and it is that in the first quarter it lost up to 200,000 subscribers, which were added to the 900,000 viewers who also left the platform in the second quarter of the year.

That slight setback was “repaired” in the third quarter, when it posted a gain of 2.4 million subscribers fueled by titles like Dahmer, a new season of Stranger Things and other hits.

Netflix partyAlso known as telepartybecame one of the most popular apps that gave a boost to the streaming platform as it allowed users to view the same content at the same time with friends, partner or family even if they are not in the same space.

Created as an extension of Google, this tool mixes the possibility of streaming simultaneously with a set of text messages where participants can exchange their thoughts in real time.

Although this tool was not developed as such by Netflix, just enter the Teleparty page and install google chrome extension. Once installed, you have to open the account, play what you want to see and click on the Netflix Party (NP) icon which will turn red, then give the “start party” option which will provide a link that can be shared with more of people to join.
