Netflix, a leading Internet television network says the launch of its service globally will simultaneously bring its Internet TV service to more than 130 new countries including Nigeria.
Last week, at the CES 2016 held in Las Vegas, United States, the company announced the expansion into new markets.
Making the announcement during a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show, Reed Hastings, Co-founder and Chief Executive, Netflix, says “Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global Internet TV network,” Hastings says.
“With this launch, consumers around the world — from Singapore to St. Petersburg, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo — will be able to enjoy TV shows and movies simultaneously — no more waiting. With the help of the Internet, we are putting power in consumers’ hands to watch whenever, wherever and on whatever device.”
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 catalogue of licensed TV shows and movies.
This year, 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.
