In Q1 2021, Netflix’s total ARPU increased by 6% year-over-year amounting to $42.91. This increase in revenue was primarily due to price changes and favorable fluctuations in foreign exchange rates.

The Asia-Pacific region is the fast-growing market for Netflix in terms of the number of streaming subscribers added on a quarterly and yearly basis.

Latin America is the only region that has recorded a decrease in ARPU by 8% year-over-year from $8.05 in Q1 2020 to $7.39 in Q1 2021.
