Netflix History Timeline

Netflix History Timeline

Founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in 1997, Netflix marks its 20th anniversary this year, on August 29. With over 100 million members, over 125 million hours of movies and TV shows watched per day worldwide, and an annual revenue of $8.8 billion, the media-streaming giant has gone through a whirlwind of changes since its launch as a DVD-by-email service. To celebrate the friend who would never scold us for sitting on the couch all day, let’s take a look at the company’s evolution and achievements throughout the years.

The Netflix Timeline illustrates some of the important events and milestones in the history of the entertainment company, from its founding, the launch of the website, and the introduction of streaming, to the service’s expansion in Europe and the release of the much-awaited offline viewing system. On September 10, 2014, Netflix, along with many other web giants, participated in the “Internet Slowdown Day” protest, part of the Battle for the Net initiative. The protest consisted in a symbolic slowdown of the participants’ websites to remind people what the World Wide Web would look like without net neutrality.

The Netflix chronology was designed using Office Timeline, a PowerPoint add-in that enables users to quickly turn a series of events, plans or schedules into beautiful visuals. The free version of the software is recommended for users who need to create simple timelines fast, while the Plus edition unlocks a wide range of customization options and productivity features, ideal for building professional graphics for business communications.

Great American Eclipse Timeline

Great American Eclipse Timeline

Today, August 21, 2017, the contiguous United States will witness a total solar eclipse for the first time since February 1979. The rare event has been dubbed “The Great American Eclipse” and can only be seen from North America. Although the partial eclipse will be visible from the whole continental US, only the states along the path of totality will be able to admire the moon blocking the sun completely. The path of totality will stretch on a thin band from Lincoln Beach, OR, to Charleston, SC, passing through portions of 14 states. To ensure you don’t miss the rare celestial spectacle, we have created a timeline of the event.

The Great American Eclipse Timeline illustrates the maximum eclipse times for some of the major towns and cities where the phenomenon will be best viewed. All times are displayed in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). While the eclipse will first “touch” the continent at Lincoln Beach, OR, one of the best places in Oregon to watch it is considered to be Salem, where the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry organizes a viewing party at the State Fairgrounds. The sun will be completely obscured here at 17:18 UTC (10:18 am PDT).

The Great American Eclipse chronology was created with the help of Office Timeline, a PowerPoint plug-in that allows users to build visual schedules, plans, Gantt charts and other graphics for business or academic presentations. To edit the timeline or create similar visuals fast, we recommend the Plus Edition of the add-in, which unlocks a vast range of customization options and powerful time-saving features.

Blizzard Games Timeline

Blizzard Games Timeline

With a new Hearthstone expansion released on august 10 and StarCraft Remastered coming just a few days later, on the 14th, Blizzard fans will certainly be busy at least till late fall. Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne brings new mechanics, 135 extra cards, and free solo adventures to lure new and seasoned players alike, while StarCraft: Remastered comes with everything fans loved about the original strategy game and plenty of nostalgia. Blizzard promises the same classic gameplay that made the first StarCraft a global phenomenon, but with remastered graphics & audio, enhanced narratives, and other surprises.

Time will tell whether the two new releases will be a success or not. In the meantime, let’s take a look at the other famous games Blizzard Entertainment has rolled out throughout the years.

The Blizzard Timeline illustrates major game releases in the history of the company, from The Lost Vikings to the launch of Knights of the Frozen Throne and StarCraft: Remastered. While The Lost Vikings wasn’t the first game ever created by the developer, it was the first one Blizzard (then called Silicon & Synapse) released for PC.

The Blizzard Games chronology was created in PowerPoint with the help of Office Timeline Plus, a powerful but easy-to-use add-in that builds visually striking timelines, Gantt charts and other similar visuals in a matter of minutes.

Neil Armstrong Timeline

Born on August 5, 1930, Neil Armstrong will forever be remembered – maybe despite his wishes - as the first human being to walk on the moon. A humble, private person, the iconic figure was described by his close ones as a “reluctant American hero” who believed he was just doing his job. While he was proud of the role he played in the moon landing, Neil did not want it turned into a circus performance or used for commercial purposes, so he avoided publicity as much as possible.

Tomorrow, Neil Armstrong would turn 87 years old. To commemorate the iconic figure, we have created a timeline of his life.

Neil Armstrong Timeline

The Neil Armstrong Timeline marks major milestones and events in the life and career of the astronaut, including his first plane ride, his graduation, his first flight in space, and the year he left NASA for a teaching career. Despite being renowned for his voyage to the moon, Armstrong’s original career choice didn’t involve spaceflight. According to his own words, in his youth, all his aspirations were related to flying planes. He took his first plane ride at the age of 6 and earned his flight certificate at 16, even before getting his driver’s license.

The Neil Armstrong chronology was created using the Office Timeline PowerPoint add-in and can be copied, modified and reproduced for private or public use. To create similar visuals fast, we recommend using the Plus edition of the add-in, which comes with powerful customization and productivity features to help you build stunning timelines effortlessly.
