Netflix To Expand Original Content In 2018

Netflix gained fame by offering mail-based DVD rentals. Before long, they ventured into streaming content. Eventually, the company started producing shows of their own and many, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, and Stranger Things, have turned the company into a serious competitor for HBO and others. The company spent approximately $6 Billion on content this year. Now they’ve announced plans to increase that budget to $8 Billion in 2018. Look forward to lots more content from Netflix next year.
