On Netflix, you can get excellent videos that are not available on any other platform. The story behind Netflix's invention is fascinating. One day  Reed Hastings's go-to video store for Apollo 13 and get Apollo music  CD in rent. It was the time of 1997. At this time for watching movies, people go to theatres or call VCR, CD rent, and watch a movie at home.

This time Reed Hastings did not return the CD in time. When going to a video store after 6 weeks, he pays $40 for a late fee, and he was very sad. When Reed Hastings workout in the gym, he thinks that the gym payment method is excellent. You get a one-month membership, and after that, you can do as many exercises as you want for one month.

Reed Hastings thinks to apply this idea to the cassettes. He shares this idea with his friend Marc Randolph, and he is very inspired by Amazon's online bookselling idea and wanted to start a business like that. At that time, the VCR(video cassette recorder) time was finished. It is the time of  CD or DVD.

Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph combine their ideas, and they started Netflix on 14 April 1998. Where online DVDs and CDs are available for rent. Netflix is the first company that provides online CDs and DVDs. Marc Randolph gives the company name Netflix, which combines two words, Net and Flicks.

The meaning of the Net is the Internet, and the importance of Flicks is a movie. When Netflix was open, only 925 DVDs and CDs are available, and only 30 employees are work on Netflix. At the starting time, Netflix is working on a pay-per-rent. In September 1999, they launched a monthly subscription model. After that, you only pay for one month, and you can watch CDs and DVDs as much as you want to see.
