The streaming service’s bet on original content appears to be paying off: In 2015, revenue was up 23% from the year before. And with more than 81 million subscribers, it leads the online competition with a huge lead–and growing. Globally, Netflix is just getting started. The company recently announced it is now available in 190 countries, but it will take time to make a significant push into each of those locations (notably missing from its queue: China).
