Check This Out: Impressive New 'Netflix by the Numbers' Infographic
Ah Netflix, who doesn't use it? Time for another infographic to kick off your day, this one via GigaOM, all about that fantastic video service. As many know, Netflix recently exploded into the digital realm, becoming the largest user of bandwidth on the internet (to distribute streaming movies), and growing subscribers substantially by launching accounts for those streaming online only. Who still gets the discs anyway? (I'm only kidding, or am I?) This infographic is based on real traffic data and is impressive when you think about just how huge Netflix has become and how it really is the primary movie-watching method for many people.
Click on the image above to jump to GigaOM to see the infographic full-size. There have been numerous Netflix-related infographics before this, including How Netflix is Destroying Blockbuster, which was a good one, the NY Times' Netflix Queues map app, and of course, Netflix vs. Redbox. I should also point out this /Film post from April about how Google searches for Netflix have been way up. I use Netflix almost every day on my PS3, so I definitely contribute to that 30% traffic share. I'm so glad they're around and thriving, and I'm glad they've continued to evolve with the times and stay on the cutting edge, its certainly paid off.
