What is Netflix and what are the advantages of the provider?
Netflix is a subscription-based streaming service. You can imagine the provider as a kind of large media library of films and series. You can access this media library at any time via the provider’s app or website and stream films and series without commercial breaks as you please.
The streaming service not only offers content from various film studios, but also in-house productions, which are called Netflix originals. These are usually only published on the platform. The example of the series “House of Money” or “Elite” show that originals usually achieve great success and popularity.
