Netflix Now Officially Has More Subscribers Than Comcast

Netflix continued to post impressive quarterly financial numbers, ending the first quarter 2011 as the largest subscription video service in North America. In the first quarter, Netflix added 3.6 million subscribers, ending the period with more than 23.6 million subscribers in total. That was up 69 percent from the 14 million subscribers it had a year ago. To put that in context: Comcast ended 2010 with 22.8 million pay TV subscribers. While it's always possible the cable company could report subscriber additions in the first quarter, it's unlikely to do so, given its declines over the last several quarters. Most of Netflix's customer additions came in the U.S., where it added 3.3 million new users to end at 22.8 million subscribers. Internationally, Netflix added an additional 290,000 subs, to bring total international users to 800,000. Netflix's revenue for the quarter came in at $719 million, which was 46 percent higher than the prior year's first-quarter sales of $494 million. The company recorded net income of $1.11 cents a share, compared to 59 cents a share in the year-ago quarter and 87 cents a share in the fourth quarter of last year.

RadioShack Profit Drops 30 Percent

RadioShack's profit dropped 30 percent to $35 billion, which the company attributed to stiff competition as well as a contract dispute with T-Mobile. The company's mobility business did grow by 11 percent, the company said. "Despite a challenging economy and tough weather conditions, our first-quarter results were generally in line with our internal expectations," the company's president and CEO-designate, Jim Gooch, said as part of the announcement. "We expect the softness in our business to continue during the second quarter before we begin to see the benefits of our merchandising and sales initiatives improving both revenue and income trends in the back half of the year. In addition, growth in our mobility business will be aided by our tablet computer offerings, which are being introduced this month."
