Still, we think management's somewhat cautious Q3 outlook for 5.0 million global net adds (4.35 million and 0.65 million) could prove conservative, particularly in relatively nascent international markets, as the company heads into a seasonally stronger H2 period with a much stronger content slate," wrote CFRA in a note.
