The company was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It started its subscription service in 1999. In 2009 it was offering a collection of 100,000 titles on DVD and surpassing 10 million subscribers. On February 25, 2007, Netflix announced the billionth DVD delivery.
Netflix spends a lot of time experimenting with different setups — both on the front end and the back end — to make the experience better. The key to this kind of iterative testing is the ability to frequently roll out updates or roll back changes.
The technology you use is delivered from Netflix servers every time you launch their application. This means they can constantly update, test and improve the experience they offer.
