Netflix, the world’s leading Internet TV network, launched in Belgium and Luxembourg, culminating a week of events that also introduced it to France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
More than 63 million broadband households in these six European countries can now subscribe to Netflix and access exclusive Netflix original programming and a wide selection of Hollywood, local and global TV shows and movies via a range of internet-connected devices.
“We’ve received a very warm welcome throughout Europe,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix co-founder and chief executive officer. “Consumers love choice – in series and films and in when and where they watch. We are delighted people are embracing Netflix in our newest territories and, particularly, the incredible viewer enthusiasm for our original series.”
Available now on Netflix across the six countries is a wide variety of titles, including full seasons of Netflix original series never before broadcast there such as the critically- and popularly-acclaimed comedic drama Orange is The New Black, and animated comedy Bojack Horseman. Upcoming Netflix original series will also be only on Netflix in these countries.
In addition to the broad slate of international viewables, there are also many local and European titles available on Netflix across the new countries.
