SVOD leader set to enter its 41st country
Netflix June 19 said it will launch its subscription video-on-demand service in Holland later this year. It did not disclose what the monthly subscription fee would be at launch.
The Netherlands represents Netflix’s 41st country following SVOD service bows in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia, Latin America, Mexico and the United States.
Upon launch, broadband Internet users in the Netherlands will be able to stream Hollywood, local and global TV series and films, including critically acclaimed Netflix Original Series such as "House of Cards" and "Arrested Development" on tablets, phones, TVs, game consoles and computers.
Since launching the SVOD market in 2007, Netflix has revolutionized entertainment, including repurposed TV programming and, most recently, original episodic TV shows. It has more than 36 million subscribers in 40 countries who stream more than 1 billion hours of TV shows and movies per month.
Interested consumers in the Netherlands can go to www.netflix.nl and sign up to receive an e-mail alert when Netflix has launched. Further details, including pricing, content and supported devices will be available later.
