NEW YORK (AP) – Netflix tripled its normal number of new subscribers in the quarter since the coronavirus pandemic hit.

Netflix says it picked up 10.1 million worldwide subscribers during the April through June period.

Netflix ended June with 193 million worldwide subscribers, including 70 million in the U.S. and Canada, its largest geographic market.

The pandemic has shut down Hollywood, limiting the ability of TV and movie studios to produce more entertainment to feed Netflix and other video streaming services.

That could limit their appeal if viewers run out of new things to watch.
