About Netflix:
Netflix is one of the world's leading entertainment services, with over 238 million paid memberships in over 190 countries, enjoying TV series, films, and games across a wide variety of genres and languages. Members can play, pause and resume watching as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, and can change their plans at any time.
We are pursuing consumer products and experiences because we believe they will drive meaningful show awareness/buzz with more tangible, curated ways to interact with our most popular content IRL and drive long-term value. We want merchandise and experiences to help promote our titles and build them into title brands or franchises so they become part of the zeitgeist for longer periods of time.
