Internet TV giant Netflix is to expand into South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan in early 2016 as it moves to complete its global rollout by the end of next year.

Once launched, Internet users will be able to subscribe to Netflix and instantly watch a curated selection of popular TV shows and movies in high-definition or even Ultra HD 4K on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Netflix first became available in Asia earlier this month with the start of service in Japan.

“The combination of increasing Internet speeds and ubiquity of connected devices provides consumers with the anytime, anywhere ability to enjoy their favorite TV shows and movies on the Netflix service,” comments Reed Hastings, chief executive officer of Netflix. “These four markets well represent those trends.”

Scott Murrow (AMC Networks) and Jamie Lennox (Hotwolf) are among the panellists that will be discussing ‘Monetising the Millennials’ at this year’s OTTtv World Summit (9th – 12th November 2015 Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London, UK).
