After-sale services provider Netflix announced it was shutting down its After-Sale Services Hublot.
Netflix said it would no longer provide “after-delivery services” for content after the first 30 days after it received it.
The hublot’s former employees were left with “nothing but regret” for the company.
“We lost a valuable member of our team that was a tremendous talent and a joy to work with,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a statement.
“Our entire team is devastated and our hearts go out to all those who have lost their jobs and are struggling with the loss of a friend and colleague.”
Netflix is shutting down After-Sales Services Hublots after the second 30 days of receipt for content.
But, Netflix has a way of staying afloat even after a customer leaves.
The company has been running a “pay-to-play” model for a while now, where it’s paying content creators and content distributors a small fee to have their content added to Netflix.
The fee isn’t a huge amount, but it’s a small amount compared to the millions of dollars Netflix made on the sale of streaming rights to its movie and television shows.
Netflix made $2.8 billion in the first half of 2017, according to data from comScore, and $3.3 billion in that time.
Netflix CEO Hastings recently said Netflix is going to try a “payment-by-download” model with content.
