industry leader Netflix

Netflix is the industry leader simply because it was one of the first to the party. However, they are now struggling to acquire subscribers. One of the reason they became as big as they did was because of huge discounts they had with mobile carriers in the US.

For years US carriers gave a free year of Netflix any time you upgraded your phone. Furthermore, streaming services never counted towards your data and most basic phone plans gave you a basic Netflix membership complimentary. Sadly they have stopped most of them. I still have another 4 years of free Netflix because of the upgrades on my family plan.

All these streaming sites are gonna over flood the market and turn everyone off I think. Oh well, Youtube it is!
