More than 63 million broadband households in these six European countries* can now subscribe to Netflix and, for one low monthly price, instantly access exclusive Netflix original programming and a wide selection of Hollywood, local and global TV shows and movies via a range of internet-connected devices.

“We’ve received a very warm welcome throughout Europe,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix co-founder and chief executive officer. “Consumers love choice – in series and films and in when and where they watch. We are delighted people are embracing Netflix in our newest territories and, particularly, the incredible viewer enthusiasm for our original series.”
