It’s been revealed that Netflix has gained over 10 million subscribers during this COVID-19 lockdown period which means they’ve really profited from this.

We’ve all been stuck inside for quite a while these last few months, and it seems as though a lot of us have been passing the time by watching stuff on Netflix.

This is probably one of the reasons why the streaming giants have seen such a huge incredible in subscribers over the past few months.

According to Variety, Netflix has gained over 10 million new subscribers worldwide during the lockdown period.

That’s a huge number, and it might also have something to do with the lack of competition.

Netflix’s only real competitors are Amazon and Hulu, and they haven’t really released too much new stuff in the past few months.
