Over on Vox.com they look – again – at this issue which is really bugging a lot of filmmakers: Netflix’s refusal to release viewer numbers. From Netflix’s point of view the reason may be simple: they don’t care. They want general subscribers. (Of course they really do care because better shows pull in more subscribers).
It’s an interesting read that will hopefully help filmmakers get further inside the head of Netflix, but, at the end of the day the numbers are not forthcoming.
