Netflix now has more than 60 million subscribers worldwide.

The streaming giant gained a phenomenal 4.9 million in the last three months of 2014, bringing its total subscribers to 62.3 million.

However, profits are down slightly on the same time last year.

40 million of its subscribers are in the US, with the rest spread through the more than 50 territories in which it operates.

The firm also confirmed that a refreshed user interface for its TV apps will land in the second half of this year. Details are scarce, but it sounds like the firm will let you watch a film while you’re browsing the web.

It’s also working on a new documentary series. Called ‘Our Planet’, it will follow in the footsteps of the iconic ‘Planet Earth’ series – it's made by the same production company – but will be filmed with 4K cameras. The World Wildlife Fund is also on board.

The four-year project is the largest Netflix has ever attempted. It will air in 2019.

Netflix is rumoured to launch in Spain this year. It should be available in every country in the world by 2017 – ambitious plans, certainly, with around 200 countries to go in about 18 months.

It’s also mulling over a move into Russia.
