Netflix has filed 318 patent applications at USPTO so far (excluding Design and PCT applications). Out of these 224 have been granted leading to the grant rate of 97.82%. 

The table below provides key stats of Netflix’s patent prosecution at the USPTO:

So far, in the top ten, there is only one Art Unit in which Netflix doesn’t have a perfect allowance rate of 100%. This reminds me of another interesting statistic–Do you know Amazon has a similar average grant rate (97.2%) at the USPTO? Plus, they have filed 14316 patent applications at USPTO.
