Netflix plots multiple Asian launches
September 9, 2015
Netflix plans to enter Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea in early 2016 as the streaming giant continues with its global rollout aim.
Netflix will begin by streaming a selection of TV shows, movies and childrens programming. Most will come with local subtitles, and further details such as pricing and packages will be disclosed later, it said in a statement.
Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings has previously stated he also hopes to get Netflix into China next year.
News of the company’s Asian expansion emerged through a Chinese-language statement that was posted briefly on its website earlier, then quickly pulled.
