In a regulatory filing on Monday, Netflix released revenue and subscription data that showed the service has grown fastest in regions outside of the U.S. and Canada from 2017 to 2019.

Why it matters: This is the first time Netflix has disclosed subscriber numbers for specific regions. Netflix's streaming business in North America is still growing, but the platform — like other consumer media companies — is increasingly looking to other regions to continue its growth when business inevitably slows down at home.

By the numbers (Sept. 30):

  • International: More than 90 million paid subscribers outside of the U.S. and Canada
  • U.S. and Canada: 67.1 million
  • Europe, Middle East, Africa: 47.4 million
  • Latin America: 29.4 million
  • Asia Pacific: 14.5 million

1 relic thing: Netflix generated $450 million in revenue from DVD rentals in the U.S. and Canada — in 2017!

Newly released transcripts of bodycam footage from the Minneapolis Police Department show that George Floyd told officers he could not breathe more than 20 times in the moments leading up to his death.

Why it matters: Floyd's killing sparked a national wave of Black Lives Matter protests and an ongoing reckoning over systemic racism in the United States. The transcripts "offer one the most thorough and dramatic accounts" before Floyd's death, The New York Times writes.

Fighting the coronavirus infodemic

An "infodemic" of misinformation and disinformation has helped cripple the response to the novel coronavirus.

Why it matters: High-powered social media accelerates the spread of lies and political polarization that motivates people to believe them. Unless the public health sphere can effectively counter misinformation, not even an effective vaccine may be enough to end the pandemic.
