Netflix's catalog has shrank by 50 percent since 2012

If you've felt like Netflix's U.S. catalog has shrunk dramatically since the company started making its own shows and movies, you're right.

Since 2012, Netflix's selection of titles has dropped over 50 percent from roughly 11,000 titles to about 5,300.

The height of Netflix's catalog size was in 2012 before the company began making original content in 2013.

It was an hour-long national nightmare this weekend as Netflix gave users the black screen of death on Saturday afternoon.
