What is Netflix's identity amid a crowded streaming era? Well, it's not about any single piece of content or ongoing franchise, even though any given subscriber surely has a favorite Netflix show or movie.
Netflix is defined as being the first of its kind, arguably the only A-level streaming service, one that got into the marketplace of online streaming by choice rather than competitive envy or Wall Street pressure.
"[Netflix] has some significant advantages over the competition, including the fact that it is exclusively a digital streaming company," stated Dan Goman, CEO of Ateliere, a provider of software and services to entertainment companies. "This means that it doesn't have to deal with the challenges faces by other competitors operating both digital and legacy businesses."
