Netflix has over 70 million global subscribers, but did you know the company has an insane install base in the United States? There are 43 million US subscribers, over half of Netflix's user base.


According to a new survey from research firm RBC Capital Markets, over half of US Internet users have used Netflix to watch a movie or TV show in the last 12 months. The study also asked users what other ways they consume their video, with YouTube coming in second place. Behind that, there was Amazon Instant Video, Hulu and HBO Go.

With huge shows like House of Cards, Daredevil and the just-released Jessica Jones, it's no wonder why Netflix is such a powerhouse for video content.
