The renowned U.S. provider of on-demand Internet streaming media Netflix is expanding globally. On Jan. 6, it started offering services to about 130 new countries, including Ukraine, Russia, India, and more. In a statement announcing the expansion, the company said its strategy will bring the birth of a new global Internet TV network.
The subscription starts at 7.99 euros per month for users in Ukraine and other newly-added countries, with a free-month trial and cancellation at any time.
Netflix allows to watch movies and TV shows online, without downloading them, on multiple devices. It works with platforms like Smart TV, PlayStation, Xbox, Chromecast, Apple TV, or through a free app on iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows phones and tablets.
The minimum required Internet connection speed for the service’s proper work is 0.5 megabits per second, which should pose no problem for Ukraine Internet users.
Currently, according to the company’s press service, it has about 70 million members in over 190 countries considering to be the world’s leading Internet television network.
Netflix has already been interested in running its services in Ukraine, where the company registered its trade name on Aug. 27 in 2013.
