Netflix finished the fourth quarter of 2023 with 260 million subscribers, marking another strong subscriber growth quarter for the company. According to Netflix, it was the company’s “largest Q4 ever.”

Netflix ended the third quarter of 2023 with 247 million global subscribers, an increase of almost nine million on the quarter before. With another 13 million subscribers confirmed for the fourth quarter, the streaming service added close to 22 million subscribers in the past six months alone.

When looking at the year-over-year change, Netflix ended 2022 with 230.75 million global subscribers. As a result, Netflix managed to add a total of 29.5 million subscribers during 2023.

In terms of the US and Canada, Netflix’s Q3 2023 ended with 80.1 million subscribers. Again, this resulted in an increase of 2.8 million when compared to the 77.32 million reported for the end of the third quarter of the year. This also resulted in an increase of 5.8 million on the 74.3 million subscribers reported for the fourth quarter of 2022.

Ahead of today’s subscriber update, Netflix and the WWE jointly confirmed that the streaming service was set to become the new and exclusive home of Raw. While that change will likely bring in even more subscribers, Raw on Netflix won’t be available in the United States until January 2025.

This quarter, however, will see Netflix’s next live sports event take place, when Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz face off in March’s ‘Netflix Slam’ live tennis match.
