I. Introduction: Strategic Profile and Case Analysis Purpose
Netflix, Inc. is an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming founded by Reed hasting and Marc Randolph in 1997. Behind this multi billions dollar company, there is unique story of how, Hasting, one of Netflix founder came up with the Idea of Netflix. The idea for a rent-by mail video business came up because he was forced to pay a late fee for an overdue copy of Apollo 13. After he realized no one has ever come up with this business model yet, he then sells his company, Pure Ateria software and invested 2.5 million to a new company called Netflix.

c. Even though Netflix only operated in two continents, As of September 2013, Netflix reported their global subscriber is around 40.4 million (Stelter).
