Revenue for the three months totalled $3.286 billion, in line with forecasts. Thanks to the new figures, there are now more than 117 million Netflix subscribers across the globe.

Netflix continued its growth spurt, posting today strong subscriber growth in the face of intensifying competition in the video streaming market. Following the transaction, the general counsel now directly owns 43,071 shares in the company, valued at $8,566,821.90.

Netflix churns out a wide range of new shows every month to entice new viewers and keep old ones.

In late December, Netflix also debuted Bright, the Will Smith-starring science-fiction film that cost $90 million to make. "The same way as many Disney and Fox executives also subscribe to Netflix", Hastings said on a conference call with analysts. Netflix saw 1.98 million domestic net additions, and 5.05 million internationally.

"Maybe they will offer an ad-free version or a lower-cost version with ads in it", Ross said at the AdExchanger Industry Preview event in NY last week.

The company still plans on spending up to $8 billion on content this year, up from roughly $6 billion in 2017. SRS Capital Advisors Inc. boosted its stake in shares of Netflix by 3,361.9% in the first quarter.

In related news, Director Richard N. Barton sold 2,000 shares of the company's stock in a transaction on Thursday, May 11th. While a previous increase slowed subscriber gains, this one passed with less scrutiny or media coverage. The $7.99 monthly price of the basic one-screen, standard definition-video plan remained the same.

Netflix has announced that it expects to add 6.30 million new subscribers in its fourth quarter.

"In addition to being well-received in its home country, has also been viewed by millions of members in the USA and has outsized watching throughout Europe and Latin America", said Netflix.

Netflix temporarily halted production of "House of Cards" to write out Spacey's character and decided not to release the film "Gore", which starred Spacey as Gore Vidal.

Several other equities analysts also recently commented on the company.
