- the "Netflix revolution" has been given to the display via streaming service, although today the home delivery service is maintained and even adapts and updates, for example, now offers Blu-Ray. It is an activity that aims at low, especially when compared with the rapid popularization of service via broadband connections. Even this service even contemplated in its international expansion into Latin America and Europe
How its work?
The Netflix streaming service works with a player based on Microsoft Silverlight to avoid that the audiovisual content was downloaded, although it also has the option of using a player created with HTML5. When you go to a movie, Netflix preloads a small part of this before to avoid cuts by buffering.
