Netflix’s primary business model consists of DVD sales and rental. Since 2009, it is expanding the business with an introduction of streaming media, while retaining the Blue-ray and DVD services. In recent months, the company has invested a lot on the development of original series and short films. No doubt, “House of Cards” is one of its great series.
