Distributing ‘Daredevil’: The Technology Behind Netflix’s Latest Global TV Show Launch

OpenConnect servers cache copies of “Daredevil” and other shows and movies locally, and they’re especially important as Netflix expands around the globe. When the company launched in Brazil in 2011, it was still delivering every single stream straight from data centers in Dallas and Miami. These days, 85 percent of all Netflix streams in Brazil are coming from local content caches — and Netflix only has to send the files for the show once to these caches to allow everyone to binge. – Janko Roettgers, Variety
