Why the 24th?

With Netflix announcing the 24th of March as their launch date, many are wondering why that particular day as it’s a Tuesday.

Here’s my guess:

On the 20th, Netflix releases its new series Bloodline. That is actually the 21st in this part of the world, making it a Saturday. And who in their right mind launches a new streaming service on a Saturday, right?

So the next logical date is Monday, however a Monday here is a Sunday in the US so the 23rd is also out. This leaves us with Tuesday the 24th of March.
