New Releases On Netflix Streaming in March 2014
The Netflix streaming service continues to grow and add new subscribers each month. Netflix's total subscriber base now tops 40 million. As pay cable networks such as Showtime and HBO lose customers at 4% per month, Netflix is adding them at a rate of 3% subscriber growth per month.
Netflix streaming simply offers a better product for a lower price. HBO for example typically costs about $20 per month. For this you do undoubtedly get access to some great shows such as Game of Thrones but Netflix has seemed to catch HBO and Showtime by producing their own high quality programs. For only $8 per month for Netflix you can see their own must see shows such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
In addition to compatible self produced shows, Netflix beats the pay cable services in the breadth of the movies and TV shows they make available to stream each month
