As more families cut costs by staying in for the night, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX)is reaping the rewards. Today's financial report from the online movie rental company disclosed a 21% raise in revenue  to $394 million.

According  to this recent article in the Wall Street Journal, Netflix expects their positive momentum to swing through the summer months.

Netflix expects revenue of $403 million to $409 million and a total of 10.4 million to 10.6 million subscribers by June 30...For the year, the company raised its revenue outlook to a range of $1.63 billion to $1.67 billion from its previous forecast of $1.58 billion to $1.635 billion.

 

You may recall my post from last October titled: Netflix Lowers Expectations for Subscriber Growth, when they revised their growth forecast buy 100,000 fewer subscribers. The revenue increases must come as welcome news to Netflix.
