Netflix has announced what it describes as “a truly Polish service”, using local language, currency and adding Polish TV shows and movies in addition to the SVoD platform’s original programming. Netflix has also signed an agreement with its first local partner, mobile provider T-Mobile.
Hollywood movies, top TV shows, Polish titles, documentaries, independent films, stand-up comedy and a wide range of kids’ titles are now available to watch instantly on Netflix with over 80 per cent of the content dubbed or subtitled in Polish.
Netflix and T-Mobile will partner to make watching Internet TV easy in Poland, through a consumer promotion later this year, allowing members to pay for Netflix through their T-Mobile account.
“We always knew the Polish people had a big appetite for great entertainment,” said Reed Hastings, co-founder and chief executive officer of Netflix. “Now we know it and we’re delighted to offer a more localised Netflix experience in Poland that will continue to grow with great TV shows and movies from here as well as around the world.”
Netflix series now available with Polish subtitles and dubbing include such global phenomena as House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things, Narcos, Marvel’s Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and The Get Down, award-winning documentaries Making a Murderer, Winter on Fire and Chef’s Table, and original films such as Adam Sandler’s The Do-Over and Ridiculous 6.
