Netflix continues to flourish
Orange is the New Black proves biggest hit
Netflix has announced its 3rd Quarter earnings and it's good news all the way for the world's biggest internet streaming service.
The company has revealed that they've surpassed the 40 million subscribers milestone, globally, and with over 30 million subscribers in the USA, it has now surpassed the numbers of HBO, America's leading cable network.
International growth has also been steady with around 9 million signed up in Latin America and Europe.
