Netflix Earnings: Paid Sharing Boosts Subscriber Growth but Surprisingly Not ARPU

Netflix posted a solid second quarter with net customer additions of 5.9 million, well ahead of our estimate. The firm benefited from the rollout of its password sharing crackdown—paid sharing—covering over 100 countries including the United States. Despite the subscriber beat and additional shared account fees, revenue was in line with our estimate due in part to foreign exchange headwinds as well as stagnant average revenue per user, or ARPU, in Netflix’s two largest regions.
