Netflix is an international company, and that means that they have to juggle a lot of different streaming deals in a lot of different countries. The streaming giant has been working to expand catalogs overseas, though their U.S.-based catalog remains the largest of their 241 different libraries.
Worldwide, Netflix has the rights to 13,612 titles – but they only have the rights to each of those titles in certain countries. That means that each of Netflix’s individual libraries is much smaller than 13,612 titles – and some of them are very tiny indeed.
How Does Your Country’s Catalog Stack Up?
Using data from our partner site, AllFlicks, we measured the size of each of Netflix’s 241 different libraries and then put them in order in the huge graphic below. Some of the countries finish exactly where you’d expect – but others are a bit of a surprise.
The largest library is Netflix’s original U.S. library, which weighs in at 5,087 titles (37% of all titles Netflix has the rights to anywhere). That dwarfs the smallest library, Sudan’s, which offers a mere 908 titles.
In between are 239 other countries, each with a slightly different library. Martinique takes a surprising second place and leads a group of Caribbean nations that dominate the top part of the list. European nations tend to top out at under 3,000 titles, noticeably fewer than most countries in the Americas. Middle Eastern, Asian, and African countries are even more under-served.
