Netflix's primary business is a streaming video-on-demand service now available in almost every country worldwide except China.

In 2011, Netflix introduced DVD-only plans and separated the combined streaming and DVD plans, making it necessary for subscribers who want both to have separate plans.

Netflix shares were trading up 5.05% at $510.81 at the time of publication on Thursday. The stock has a 52-week high of $575.37 and a 52-week low of $281.14.
