As of January 6, American Netflix has begun streaming its Internet video service in 130 more countries, including Romania, closing in on its goal of becoming the first global online television service.
“Right now, you are witnessing the birth of a global TV network,” Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings said Wednesday in a keynote speech at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Subscriptions start from EUR 7.99 per month Basic package, the video streaming company offering the first month for free.
The company, whose services were available in more than 60 countries before Wednesday’s launch, had previously said it aimed to reach 200 countries by the end of 2016.
For one monthly price, members around the world will be able to enjoy Netflix original series including Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Narcos, Sense8, Grace and Frankie, and Marco Polo, as well as a catalog of licensed TV shows and movies.
In 2016, the company plans to release 31 new and returning original series, two dozen original feature films and documentaries, a wide range of stand-up comedy specials and 30 original kids series – available at the same time to members everywhere.
Netflix is available on virtually any device that has an Internet connection, including personal computers, tablets, smartphones, Smart TVs and game consoles, and automatically provides the best possible streaming quality based on available bandwidth.
