Behind the numbers (Business of Apps):

"Netflix is comfortably the world’s biggest streaming service. Amazon Prime, with 150 million subscribers (this dates back to January 2020, however), is a distant second, while the relatively fresh Disney Plus reported 87 million as of December 2020.

Overall growth in Netflix subscribers over the course of 2019 represented something of a stagnation, with the final figure inferior to 2018’s figure. We might note that 2018, however, had been the the best year by some measure in terms of Netflix subscriber growth before 2020.

Netflix subscriber growth clearly profited from the circumstances of 2020, with growth at more than double expected level in Q1 2020, and 33% over target in Q2 2020. 2021 growth is anticipated to be more conservative."
