Whilst conducting research for my media and society essay, I was experiencing great difficulty trying to find data about the UK version of Netflix. Many of the articles from the likes of the Guardian and the Telegraph did not report data appropriate to my essay. I then stumbled across the site statista; simply typing in Netflix in to the search bar displayed 279 statistics in a matter of seconds.
The site contains over a million statistics and contains statistics on over 80,000 topics from over 18,000 sources. It displays statistics in easy to understand charts and allows you to download the data in various different formats including .png (Portable Network Graphics), .xls (Microsoft Excel), .ppt (Microsoft PowerPoint) and .pdf (Portable Document Format).
Despite all it’s data, useful features and being used by the likes of ‘consultant firms, media agencies and marketing departments’, the site is unknown to the majority of the public and is only the 3,978th most visited site globally.
