Netflix CEO, and Co-founder Reed Hastings has just announced the availability of Netflix in a bunch of new countries across the world, including Nigeria.
Hastings made the announcement during his presentation at CES just a few minutes ago. Besides announcing availability in the new countries, he also announced that Netflix was planning to release over 600 hours of original content in 2016.
Netflix is a provider of on-demand Internet streaming media. The company was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It started its subscription-based service in 1999.
Starting right now, users in Nigeria can head to Netflix and for $8 a month (~N1600 or N2080 depending on where you’re getting your dollars from) get a huge collection of movies, shows and documentaries provided that your internet is good.
At this moment, I should point out that content may vary from location to location thanks to licensing deals. That said, if you have been looking for an alternative to DSTV, this is a pretty good one.
New users on the service get a free month’s subscription by the way, so Netflix and Chill anyone?
