Netflix had a 2.4 million subscriber influx in its third quarter. This came after a large loss in subscribers earlier in the year and a hit to its stock prices on Wall Street.
Netflix recognizes the need to strike a balance between great, original content and affordability — its boost in subscribers follows the release of major titles such as "Dahmer" and "Stranger Things" season 4, and an announcement of a new pay tier for subscriptions. They are also planning a crackdown on password sharing and finding that the majority of their subscriptions are coming from outside the U.S.
