Netflix's stratospheric growth in the UK may be coming to an end. According to data, the streaming service's growth has stagnated over the last 12 months.
Netflix doesn't publish UK subscriber numbers, but data from "a well-placed industry player" is telling. For most of last year, the firm was stuck at around 5.7 million UK subscribers, the figures show.
The service received a boost over Christmas, when its lush production 'The Crown' helped add 400,000 customers. But it has since remained flat at about 6.1 million UK customers.
This is a significant slowdown for the service.
The figures are based on information for the television industry body Broadcasters' Audience Research Board, as well as private consumer research.
Last week, Disney announced it would pull its content from Netflix in 2019, when it launches its own Disney-branded streaming service. Netflix hopes to retain Disney's Star Wars and Marvel licenses, however.
