Netflix Hits Worldwide Availability
Video streaming service giant Netflix last year announced its plans to speed up its global expansion, with its Chief Executive Reed Hastings looking to make the service available in a global scale by the end of this year. In what seems to be a shocking move by the company, Netflix has just announced that it has now gone live in 130 new countries, making the availability of its service provided at a global scale.
"Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global Internet TV network," said Hastings. He further notes that with its launch, customers around the world will now be able to enjoy TV shows and movies simultaneously.
Netflix will be sticking to its monthly subscription fees, wherein consumers will be able to watch original series such as Marvel's "Daredevil" and "Jessica Jones," "Narcos," "Sense8," "Grace and Frankie," "Marco Polo" and a long list of licensed TV shows and movies in the company's streaming platform. Furthermore, the company also plans to release a wave of original feature films, series, documentaries, specials, kid series and so forth.
In the process, Netflix has also added language support for Arabic, Korean, as well as Simplified and Traditional Chinese to the 17 languages the platform already supports.
The service, however, will not yet be available in China, although the company notes that it is exploring options to offer its platform in the East. Furthermore, consumers in Crimea, North Korea and Syria still won't be able to enjoy Netflix as there are United States government restrictions when it comes to American companies.
Netflix is widely available to a number of compatible devices that come with an Internet connection, whether through Wi-Fi or LAN. Subscribers can watch the platform's original series, as well as licensed shows, with their mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, desktop computers and laptops, Smart TVs and game consoles.
