Founded in 1997, long before the idea of streaming video-on-demand (VOD) had been conceived, Netflix started out as a DVD delivery service (a service which is still offered to this day). Netflix became popular in the US thanks to its healthy movie and TV selection, its iconic red envelope, and an incredibly accurate recommendations algorithm. It has since applied the same tactics and technologies to the world of SVOD, winning acclaim for its original series and rapidly building an enormous library of titles.

Netflix has spread its wings and began offering its services across the globe in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and countries across Europe. In America, Netflix remains the undefeated champion of video streaming. Here are the many reasons why.

Netflix is, so far, the undisputed champion of streaming services when it comes to producing its own exclusive content. With shows like House of Cards, Orange is The New Black, Marvel’s Daredevil, and one of their newer shows Stranger Things, Netflix has been on a roll. Beyond that, Netflix airs some of the greatest titles in television history. Unlike Hulu, Netflix doesn’t really cater to those obsessed with daily soaps but there’s still so much to see here.

The American Netflix library is so desirable that many consumers across the globe purchase a VPN just to gain access to the US Netflix library.

Netflix Pros and cons


  • 30-day free trial
  • Netflix Originals are amazing
  • Fantastic (and foolproof) parental controls
  • User-friendly interface


  • Doesn’t stream currently running TV seasons like Hulu

Case study: Michael's experience

Michael Bowley profile photo
Michael Bowley
Netflix was the final factor in my family cutting the cable cord. Its recent surge in quality Netflix-made content as well as its acquisition of old movies and TV shows means there’s always something new and exciting to watch.

My top Netflix feature is the ability to access your account simultaneously on multiple devices, meaning family members can share the same account with their own content suggestions.


There’s a reason Netflix sits atop the entertainment throne – and its global expansion is proof that it’s not simply thanks to the existing user base from the DVD-only days. Netflix has a friendly interface that anyone can use, comprehensive support documents and live chat, a more-than-reasonable price, and the money and passion to create some truly unique content that rivals some of the best titles on television. It may not air current-run seasons like Hulu, or allow you to download titles like Amazon Instant Video, but its user-centric qualities have cemented Netflix’s position at the top.

      Hello Sharon,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      Though Netflix has a wide library of content for TV Shows/ Movies, still there are series that are not available due to copyright issues. You may head directly to Netflix website to suggest for CSI to be added to their content in the future.

      I hope this helps.
