In the first three months of the year, Netflix gained 2 million U.S. Internet subscribers, thanks in part to the success of the political drama "House of Cards," which debuted in February. Netflix is expected to get another boost this weekend with the revival of "Arrested Development." Here's a breakdown of Netflix Inc.'s subscribers as of March 31 and details on its forecast:


-- 29.2 million in U.S., gain of 2 million during the first quarter

-- 7.1 million outside the U.S., gain of 1 million

-- 36.3 million total, gain of 3 million


-- 8 million in U.S., loss of 241,000. DVD service is not available in other countries.

Some U.S. customers have both plans and are counted twice. Netflix didn't report the number of unique subscribers.

Forecast for the quarter through June:


-- 29.4 million to 30.05 million in U.S.

-- 7.3 million to 7.9 million outside U.S.
