What is the Status of Netflix Affiliate Program

Currently, Netflix has no public affiliate program. It is possible they have some revenue sharing partners based on some ads and disclosures we found.

History

Netflix had an affiliate program in their early days. It had a nice CPA of $10 for getting people to take the free trial. It was surely a contributor to their rapid subscriber-base growth and success.
