If the platform continues to impose itself, it is today faced with some difficulties. More and more subscribers are deserting it! Eh yes…
In the first quarter of 2022, it has thus lost several thousand. This is of course explained by the emergence of other platforms, but not only.
Many people have subscribed to the service for the explosion of the pandemic. Locked up for long weeks, they had no other means of escaping than to watch films and series.
Since then, the health situation has stabilized and citizens around the world have returned to a semblance of normal life. You will no doubt have understood that Netflix had not foreseen the massive dropout of this part of its customers…
The very famous American company has also given up on a huge market. She positioned herself on the conflict between Ukraine and Russia and suspended its activities in the latter country.
