Netflix’s smart methods behind the streaming madness
A dedicated content delivery network, localized hardware to cache content, smart algorithms and managing buffer free streaming, is just of the work that goes into making your Netflix streaming experience enjoyable
It was at the beginning of this year that the previously predominantly US-centric streaming service Netflix expanded to another 130 countries, including India. And that has changed the entire video streaming scenario in the country. Movie downloads ruled for most users at the time. But in the present scenario, habits have changed, and streaming movies and TV shows is very much on the radar for a lot of users. What you still need is a fast enough home broadband connection and also 3G/4G subscriptions with enough data to support watching the latest episode of Narcos on the way home from work, in the evening. And the thing is, a greater demographic of users is now willing to spend on good internet, and pay for accessing streaming content.
