He said that younger generation has accepted the Netflix streaming service right away and it took some time for older generation to get out of Cable TV and get used to streaming service.
“[…] Why not? Because Netflix program seems to be uniquely loved worldwide. IFL over and over again that the market cap of this company is way too small versus the opportunity. I just think that Netflix is the world’s TV. I think that it is generational. We didn’t recognize that. We were late to Netflix. For younger person, Netflix is their TV,” Cramer said.
