Netflix started the business as the first online video store in history in 1998, at the time when the DVD began to settle in the market. With 30 employees and a first catalog of 925 titles, Netflix sent and received movies on DVD through the American postal service.

And although it went through its bad times, it managed to recover and see how the year after the dotCom bubble, it was back on track. But in the middle of the bygone era, Netflix started thinking crazy: streaming video.

14 years of VOD services
