If you go by that reasoning, there are over 300 million Netflix users.

92. Netflix app was the most popular streaming app worldwide in 2022.

Based on the total number of downloads worldwide in July 2022, Netflix had amassed about 18.63 million downloads, making it the most popular video streaming app. Disney+ followed Netflix with 15.16 million downloads.

93. According to users' viewing tendencies as of Q4 2021, Netflix has 1,300 "recommendation clusters."

Based on user viewing choices, Netflix has created 1,300 recommendation clusters. Hence, if you open Netflix, a selection of movies and TV series is displayed customized to your preferences and user profile.

94. Between 2020 and 2021, Netflix's market share in the US decreased by 31%.

Due to growing prices, inflation, and other factors, the Netflix platform market share has decreased to 20%. But Netflix is trying to mitigate this by introducing basic ad plans and original content.

95. In 2022, Netflix topped the list of "most streamed" TV shows.

Throughout 2022, Netflix led the streaming stats. Stranger Things was the most streamed series of the year, although Wednesday trailed behind due to its late premiere in November 2022.

96. With a market share of almost 50%, Netflix dominated the market, followed by Amazon Prime Video at 12.2% and Disney+ at 6% in 2021.

Of all streaming services, Netflix currently has the most subscribers.

But competition has been getting tougher lately, with Amazon Prime acquiring over 20,000 titles.

97. In 2021, Netflix stated that most of the new production of Netflix movies and programs would get produced overseas.

The portfolio of original television shows and films produced outside of the United States on Netflix grew as of the last quarter of 2021. Since the first quarter of 2020, foreign content productions outpaced domestic production, according to a chronology of Netflix’s national and international commissions.

98. Netflix has over 21 interactive shows as of 2022.

Through interactive programs like You vs. Wild (2019) and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018), Netflix has already broken new ground. And lately, with shows like Cat Burglar and Trivia Quest, Netflix has started veering away from the traditional – choose your adventure – format.

99. Netflix won 16 Academy Awards for the movies it produced as of 2022.

By 2022, Netflix had won 16 Oscar awards from 116 nominations in 11 categories.

100. In 2022, Netflix won 26 Emmy awards.

Over time, Netflix received 619 nominations and won 135 awards.

101. The Sony Deal: Sony's movies will have first access to streaming on Netflix from 2022 to 2026.

As we saw last year, with Sony’s 2022 lineup, the agreement will last until 2026.

In addition to Morbius, Where the Crawdads Sing, and Bullet Train, it will also feature sequels to popular movies like Venom, Spider-Man, Jumanji, and Bad Boys.

Final Thoughts

Once upon a time, Netflix arrived on the streaming platform, and the rest, as they say, is history. The next few years will be interesting to watch as Apple, Amazon, Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max, compete for market share.

That said, Netflix is unavailable in countries like China, Syria, North Korea, Crimea, and, most recently, Russia, where it has suspended streaming. Still, that need not prevent you from watching your favorite films and interactive shows. Find out how to access Netflix in your country.
