In 2007, Netflix became the first-ever online streaming service in the world, setting a precedent and ultimately setting the pace for several other movie streaming services like CBS, Disney Plus, and Hulu.
Netflix has a wide range of movie and television rights for its online platform, which is why 2021 is going to be a busy year for Netflix servers. A host of new movies and the latest seasons of popular shows are coming to the big screens several times during the year.
Hot content like “La Casa De Papel Season 5”, DC’s “Justice League” and Marvel’s “Black Panther II” are all set to premiere worldwide and on the Netflix platform in 2021.
