Netflix Already Has Over 100K Subscribers in France (Report)
As Netflix spreads its streaming services across the globe, the company is getting steady reassurance of its European popularity. The streaming video service launched on September 15 in France, and it’s gained over 100,000 subscribers since, in a period of just about two weeks, according to French news outlet Le Figaro.
Netflix did not comment on the figure. The streaming video giant has become available in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and Belgium so far this September, recently making a deal with Belgian telecom operator Belgacom (now Proximus) that will make Netflix easy to stream on TV sets in the country.
Netflix made a similar deal with Bouygues, a French telecom operator, when it launched in France.
Perhaps the free month of use Netflix offered in France succeeded in growing subscriber numbers in the country. So far, it has yet to catch up with popular French VOD platform, CanalPlay, which currently boasts around 520,000 subscribers.Tags: belgacom, bouygues, canalplay, France, Netflix, proximus, VOD
