Netflix Is Losing An Estimated $1.5 Billion+ Per Year To Password Sharing
During Netflix’s third-quarter earnings review conference call Netflix Chief Product Officer Greg Peters alluded to the fact that the company is monitoring password-sharing amongst its customers.
According to a recent study an estimated 35 percent of millennials, 19 percent of Generation X subscribers, and 13 percent of Baby Boomers share passwords for streaming services.
Assuming on the very low side, that just 10% of Netflix’s reported 137 million customers are sharing their passwords with non-paying customers, it means 13.7 million people are not paying Netflix a minimum of $9.95 a month. That number translates into $135 million a month or $1.62 BILLION in potential revenue Netflix is losing out on because of password sharing.
Man Tweets That Women Prefer ‘Losers’ Over Winners Like Him, Proceeds To Get Destroyed By The Internet
My housing is paid for. I make a good salary. I get health insurance, 401k, 700 lbs of beef a year, and I live on a couple hundred acres. I’m a puncher by trade with a bachelors degree. And I swear you women would rather have a loser than a provider. It’s sad

After that Tweet he was smacked in the face with reality. Here is one example:
You realize if a woman marries you, she's going to live with you, right?
So what do you have to offer as a person? It's weird how these tweets never get into why someone would enjoy your company. Or is that 700 pounds of beef meant to be compensation for your personality?

Here are some more kind words for our beefy bachelor:
I’ve provided for myself my entire life, when I got married it wasn’t to find a man to “provide” for me. Not everyone is looking to be taken care of and it sounds like your mentality that housing and beef (?!) is all you need to bring to the table is what’s standing in your way.
