GREAT NEWS! Starting today, Netflix is immediately available in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and 127 other countries. Netflix has a wide collection of TV series and Movies, and is the FIRST and probably at the moment, ONLY official and legal way to view movies and TV series online in HD.
According to the BBC the firm announced it had switched on its service in 130 additional countries.
It said it was still trying to expand to China. The other exceptions are North Korea, Syria and Crimea, where it is banned from operating by US law. The announcement was made by the firm’s chief executive Reed Hastings at his keynote speech at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.
He also confirmed that Netflix would begin offering HDR (high dynamic range) content later this year.
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 catalog of licensed TV shows and movies. In 2016, 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, including Kenya.
Mr Hastings added that Netflix would initially focus on expanding the reach of its existing content rather than commissioning extra locally-made shows.
“From today onwards, we will listen and we will learn, gradually adding more languages, more content and more ways for people to engage with Netflix,” said Hastings. “We’re looking forward to bringing great stories from all over the world to people all over the world.”
