Reed Hastings: Building Netflix

Matt Burgess

Overview

At the start of the 21st century, Blockbuster was the undisputed leader in movie rentals, while Netflix was a small mail-order DVD service. Today, Blockbuster is a distant memory while Netflix is one of the biggest names in media and a leading producer of original content – a success story largely attributed to one man.

In Building Netflix, WIRED editor Matt Burgess narrates some of the key moments in the Netflix story, exploring how it was shaped by the personality of CEO and co-founder Reed Hastings, who turned it into a tech giant worth over $200 billion. Along the way, we learn how the company upended the Hollywood status-quo and revolutionized the entertainment industry.

"Incredible people don't want to be micromanaged … You've got to have the right people, you've got to reinforce that with values, setting context about what the company is trying to achieve."
