Netflix slashed its prediction of how many U.S. video streaming subscribers it would add this year after subpar third-quarter results, causing a sharp sell-off in its stock in after-hours trading. The Los Gatos, California-based video streaming company said Tuesday it added 1.2 million net subscribers in the U.S. in the three months through September, which was on the low end of its previous forecast of gains between 1 million to 1.8 million.

Netflix cut its prediction of how many video streaming subscribers it would add this year after its third-quarter additions of 1.2 million came in at the low end of the company's forecasts. Here's a breakdown of Netflix's subscribers as of Sept. 30 and details on its forecast:

— 29.4 million total, gain of 1.85 million


— 8.6 million in U.S., loss of 634,000. DVD service is not available in other countries.

Combined (some U.S. customers have both plans and are counted once in combined figure):

— 27.5 million in U.S., gain of 1.01 million

— 31.8 million worldwide, gain of 1.7 million

Forecast for the quarter through December:


— 26.4 million to 27.1 million in U.S.
