More About Ken Barker and Netflix!
Barker joined the giant Netflix last June after resigning from 19 years job at Electronic Arts. Before EA, he worked in a company named Sun Microsystems and Deloitte & Touche.
In Netflix’s 25 years of history, it’s the first time when it is going through one of the most challenging periods. Due to this problem, the company’s financial status was badly hindered and its stock also tumbled more than 70 % after shocking subscriber losses. After two disappointing quarters, the company has laid off many workers and trimmed its expenses in an effort to right the ship.
But maybe the upcoming third and fourth quarters will bring some encouraging returns as the sequels of two high-profile movies Knives Out and The Crown, are going to release soon.
Also there’s a piece of good news for the subscribers as Netflix has reprised its earlier strategy and will soon introduce a cheaper, ad-supported subscription tier that will entertain you more!
So, if you have not taken a Netflix subscription yet, then go and take it, or else you will miss out on many upcoming entertaining series and movies! Also, stay in touch to get more updates.
