Squid Game worth almost $1 billion for Netflix

Netflix’s greatest series, Squid Game is assessed to be worth nearly $US900 million ($A1.2 billion) for the streaming company, Bloomberg News reports, refering to figures from an internal Netflix document.

The nine-episode thriller, in which contestants play childhood games with lethal results in a bid to win 45.6 billion won ($A52 million), turned into a global hit when it launched a month ago.

In contrast with its assessed total assets, the show cost just $US21.4 million ($A28.8 million) to produce, Bloomberg said.

As indicated by the report, around 132 million individuals have watched no less than two minutes of the show in its initial 23 days, effectively breaking the record set by US dramatization Bridgerton, which was gushed by 82 million records in its initial 28 days.

Netflix had before reported the show had amassed 111 million fans, yet Bloomberg said those figures depended on somewhat older data.

California-based Netflix assessed 89% of individuals who began the show observed more than one episode, the news agency said, and 66 percent wrapped up watching the series in the initial 23 days.
