Top 10 Shows on Netflix Right Now

Netflix first launched in 1997, however it was a very different company to the one we all know today. In the beginning Netflix was a DVD rental service. They stood out compared to other companies like Blockbuster because they did rentals by mail, so people did not have to go to the store. In 2007 Netflix began to do online steaming through a subscription. This is when Netflix started to evolve into what it is today. Now we can watch Netflix almost anywhere, anytime, with our televisions, laptops, and even our cell phones. There are over 1,500 TV shows on Netflix and here are the most popular ones right now.
