Comparing Netflix and Spotify In Terms of Subscriber Growth

  I think it's accurate to compare Spotify to Netflix because they both provide the same function: streaming, Spotify for music and Netflix for film/television.  Each have their own competitors who do the same thing but not as well.  For Spotify that's Pandora, for Netflix, Hulu maybe...Amazon Prime.

  But I agree with others who say that the appropriate way to forecast Spotify's growth is buy looking at Netflix subscriber growth.  Here is a chart:


















       Personally, I think that Spotify should be able to post similar numbers over time.  Presently, Spotify has 20 million "users" and 4 million "paid users," which is a million more paid users then they had last year.
