Netflix is coming to Cuba

Now that their country is dissolving years of sideways feelings with the United States, Cubans are poised to see a flood of new technology and media. There might be no better way to get caught up with movies and TV than on-demand programming, which is exactly how Netflix sees Cubans spending their evening.

Netflix, Hulu and more are dominating traditional TV

It's no secret that many are gravitating towards Netflix, Hulu and similar services to get their entertainment fix, and traditional cable viewership has suffered as a result.

Netflix is a force to be reckoned with, and there's no sign of that slowing down.
