But as someone who studies the television industry, I've always wondered how Netflix can provide so much unlimited ad-free content for such a low monthly rate, which currently averages around US$14. After all, didn't MoviePass just fall apart using a similar model of offering ad-free content for a monthly subscription fee? And Netflix is burning through cash, with negative cash flow of $3 billion in 2018 alone. What if we're look...Keep on reading: Will Netflix eventually monetize its user data?
