The CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings, got the idea for his company in 1997. After returning a VHS copy of Apollo 13 to Blockbuster, he was charged a late fee of $40. He was so infuriated that he decided that he could do better than blockbuster! Now Netflix has over 57.4 million subscribers and over a billion hours of streaming every month. Netflix has truly revolutionized DVD Rentals and movie streaming.
