Internet TV Network Netflix has announced it will expand into Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan in early 2016 as it moves to complete its global rollout by the end of 2016. Netflix also said it will open an office in Singapore in the coming months, making it the hub for its expanding operations in Asia. Netflix first became available in Asia in early September, with the start of service in Japan.
Customers in these four countries will soon be able to subscribe to Netflix and watch TV shows and movies in HD or Ultra HD 4K on internet-connected screens. Netflix will also offer programming for Singaporean children.
Netflix will be available at launch on smart TVs, tablets and smartphones, computers and a range of internet-enabled game consoles and STBs. Additional details on pricing, programming and supported devices will be available at a later date. Consumers can sign up to be alerted when Netflix is available on the company’s website.
