Netflix is one of the most popular streaming platforms worldwide, but not all Netflix is the same. Copyright laws vary from country to country, making each content library different. Which country has the best selection? The most titles? Looking at Netflix content in the U.S. compared to the UK, there’s a clear champ among viewing options.
