Netflix revealed in October that it had 40 million users, 29.3 million of whom are in the US. This meant Netflix surpassed HBO's 28.7 million subscriber network - a notable accomplishment.

With such growth, Netflix announced plans in 2011 to acquire and produce original content. The first of these plans came to fruition when it launched House of Cards in 2013.
