Netflix crushes its own expectations for subscription growth again

Netflix is still on its rounded-up-to-pretty-great run as it continues to add more and more subscribers, and once again is outperforming its own the cost estimates for growth.

Today the company said it added 5.3 million new total subscribers, with 850,000 coming in the U.S. and 4.45 million coming from international markets. Netflix is expending very aggressively on original content, and so far it seems to be paying off in terms of net subscriber growth as it seems to turn Emmy awardings into contributions for its bottom line.
