Netflix concedes viewership defeat to moon with bitter tweet

In the increasingly tense competition for our eyeballs, Netflix still remains supreme. Though beset by challenges like HBO, Amazon, and Hulu, the online streaming behemoth still tops the market.

And while staying in and watching Netflix often beats whatever nature has to offer (trees?), even it couldn’t compete with the Great American Eclipse.

People left their homes and offices in droves and for once looked at the sky instead of their screens. Late last night, in a series of tweets, Netflix conceded defeat.

But it begs the question: Who is watching Netflix in the afternoon?
