Netflix simply broke new documents on consumer spending on its own cellular programs, based on the data released by Sensor Tower. Back in November, Netflix pulled in an estimated $86.6 million in global consumer spending over its iOS and Android programs united — a figure that is 77 percent higher compared to the $49 million it created last November. That is a brand new record.
Before, the largest month Netflix needed to date was July 2018, as it grossed an estimated $84.7 million. At the moment, that has been the most it was made on mobile because it started monetizing on cellular in September 2015.
So far, Netflix has grossed over $1.58 billion on cellular.
The company did not speculate as to what, specifically, drove Netflix to break records back in November, but there are most likely several factors at play, including the tendency toward cable cutting and change toward streaming solutions for conventional “TV” watching.
However, most notably is that the rising earnings coming to Netflix out of the global markets.
Sensor Tower did point out that Netflix’s U.S. program revenue grew 76 percent year-over-year in November, but other nations contributing more than $1 million in gross earnings were greater. By way of instance, Germany climbed 90 percent, Brazil was 94 percent, South Korea was 107 percent and Japan had been 175 percent.

On the other hand, the U.S. still accounts for the vast majority of Netflix’s in-app subscription earnings, at 57 percent in November, or $49.4 million. However, with Netflix’s global expansion, its share is falling. When Netflix first started offering subscriptions in autumn 2015, the U.S. subsequently accounted for 71 percent of its earnings.
Netflix lately has been doubling back on mobile. The business is presently analyzing a mobile-only subscription targeted toward creating its service less expensive in Asia and other emerging markets.
In Q3, the business gained almost 7 million new subscribers, with 5.87 million of these coming from international markets.
