It also expects second-quarter revenue of $873 million to $895 million. Analysts forecast revenue of $895.11 million.

Netflix said it expects a second-quarter loss of between 10 cents and 14 cents a share. Analysts estimated a loss of 17 cents a share.

The online entertainment company posted a first-quarter loss of 8 cents a share on $870 million in revenue. Analysts had expected a loss of 27 cents a share on revenue of $866.93 million.
