How many subscribers will Netflix have by August 2022?


Netflix was founded August 29, 1997 has gone from a DVD sales and rental service to one of the largest video-on-demand services online.

In 2013, Netflix expanded into film and television production, starting to produce original content.

As of July 2017, Netflix had 103.95 million subscribers worldwide, including 51.92 million in the United States. Netflix then had more subscribers in the US than cable.

This question was created as a response to the Twitter-prediction of venture capitalist Jason Calacanis who boldly predicted Netflix would have 250 million subscribers by 18 July, 2022.

As reported by an data release by Netflix or another organization that credibly has accurate numbers, how many subscribers will Netflix have on August 1, 2022?

Linear interpolation between two commensurate values closest to August 1, 2022 and prior to Oct. 1 2022 will be used.
