Netflix Japan to debut in September
August 5, 2015
Japanese subscribers will be able to watch Netflix on Internet-connected devices from September 2nd – marking the streaming company’s first foray into the Asian market.
Netflix already sells its services in dozens of other countries outside the US as part of its ambition to be available globally by the end of next year.
The costs of the international expansion have been holding down Netflix’s profits, but investors have not minded because the company has been quickly winning over new customers. It now has some 65 million subscribers, more than twice as many as it had three years ago.
