C. The External Environment 

          
Competition 

      What made Netflix grow from the beginning was the economies of scale developed yet during the change from VHS to DVD technology, while Blockbuster was the main brand in the market. Nowadays, Netflix has competition not only from companies that stream online their contents (Apple Tv, but mainly Amazon and Hulu Plus) but from companies that actually rent and sell (Amazon, Walmart, Apple, and mostly, the growing Redbox). However, the marketing strategy that circumvented and helped Netflix to have a competitive edge was the ability of streaming on televisions, iPhones, iPads, Xboxes, or online. The process is seamless, meaning that a consumer can easily move from one platform to another. None of Netflix’s competitors yet have this capability.
