Netflix just added 3.3 million more subscribers, the company said in a live Google Hangout Wednesday morning, making cable just that much more irrelevant with the news.
CEO Reed Hastings even showed up to the earnings call in a Bojack Horseman sweater, contrasting nicely with all the other suits onscreen.
It’s like he’s letting everyone know that Netflix can’t be stopped, and he’ll wear whatever he damn well pleases, thank you very much.
Netflix’s stock price has also rocketed up for the just finished fiscal quarter, which comes on the heels of the June 23rd announcement of a seven-to-one stock split.
Sounds like Netflix is taking a cue from Apple’s playbook on this one.
