  3. 3. The Emergence of Netflix DVD Rental • Service started in 1999 • By 2009, Netflix had over 100,000 titles in their catalog and over 10 million subscribers. NO shelves, more opportunity to offer more obscure and unique titles! • Blockbuster declined to give figures to their competitive DVD by mail rental service this same year

Transition to Netflix VOD and Growth of Additional Outlets (“2nd screen“ viewing) • Netflix began offering video streaming services in 2008 • In 2010, 80% of American Internet users had watched video content online • This same year, 48% of mobile users who downloaded video preferred apps to a normal browser
