Netflix has announced that in the last quarter, it has lost subscribers for the first time in the last 10 years. They lost 200,000 paying customers, while they were expecting an increase of two million.

 

Immediately afterwards, the companies stock fell, and there were reports that Netflix was going to abolish password sharing and even introduce a new plan, which would be cheaper, but with ads. Netflix is even the only major streaming service that charges for 4K video quality.

 

Netflix has canceled 10 shows since the beginning of the year, and announcing the end of others. Their creators will be able to end the story, but they will have to do so in a smaller number of episodes. Some examples are Ozark, BoJack Horseman or Pacific Rim: The Black.

 

Sometimes not even the fact that it has a wide audience does not help the series. The author of The Baby-Sitters Club (Netflix canceled it after two series) Rachel Shukert explained the situation in an interview with Vulture magazine.

 

 

 

Her series has won several awards and received high ratings in reviews, while also being popular with the viewers. Shukert even claims that the viewership numbers of the series have exceeded the expectations of the streaming service. So why would Netflix cancel it?

 

According to her, the reason is subscription and the so-called binge-watch. Netflix prefers when viewers watch their series all at once in a short period of time. They value Money Heist, which viewers devour in a day or two more, than the slower drama series that you watch in smaller chunks.

 

 

The creator of The Babysitters Club then said that the most important number for Netflix is the number of subscribers. Her series has been very successful and popular in the United States, but Netflix wants to get subscribers from other countries and territories.

 

 

"The truth is, if your show is doing well in North America as well as ours, Netflix sees it this way: Everyone who might already have Netflix in North America, has it. They need to increase the number of subscribers in other countries. "

Netflix subscribers are tired of the fact that the streaming service cancels one series after another. If you start watching a new series on Netflix, you have to reckon that Netflix will cancel it and its story will not have closure. High ratings and number of viewers don't seem to impact their decisions.

 

It's hard to say how long will Netflix continue working this way, and whether its creators won't turn their backs on the platform, when they find out that Netflix is all about the specific numbers, that creators have no way of influencing.

 

 

Other popular, well-rated or popular series that Netflix canceled prematurely: Bloodline, Marco Polo, The Get Down, Sense8, Cowboy Bebop, American Vandal, Santa Clarita Diet, Tuca & Bertie, The OA, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, I Am Not Okay with This, Altered Carbon, The Society, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Jupiter's Legacy, GLOW and dozens of others.
