Netflix users hate Netflix, but can’t stop using it and the biggest complaint is it doesn’t always have that film or TV show you really want to see.

Admit it, how many times have you browsed through the titles, even read some of the info and made more than one search? And still nothing, feeling frustrated at the ridiculously low number of titles available for streaming. And costing you all the while.

Despite this, Nextflix has begun to lose market share in Latin America, due to strong competition from operators like Claro and Movistar, according to a study by the Dataxis consulting group.
