Netflix domestic revenues include the revenues from monthly membership fees for services consisting of DVD-by-mail and the streaming content, to all members in the United States.
In Q1 2011, over 98% of Netflix’s total revenue came from the United States. The company generated about $706.27 million in revenue from the United States. However, it had slowly declined to 86% in Q1 2013, when the company’s revenue from the US amounted to $881.94 million. That’s was mainly due to the increasing number of Netflix’s international subscribers, as well as the declining number of the DVD-by-mail offering memberships.
It was fiscal Q1 2014 when Netflix quarterly revenue from the US crossed $1 billion mark for the first time. The total domestic revenue increased a considerable 13.7% YoY in Q1 2014, to $1,002.97 million.
In fiscal Q3 2018, Netflix achieved another big milestone as its quarterly revenue from the US crossed $2 billion mark for the first time in history. The video streaming giant generated a whopping $2,026.09 million ($2 billion) in revenue, representing 50.66% of the company’s total revenue during Q3 2018.
Surprisingly, in Q4 2018 was the first time when Netflix international revenue figure ($2,105.6 million) surpassed its domestic revenue ($2,081.3 million). The revenue contribution of the US to Netflix’s total Q4 2018 revenue was just 49.7%.
