Netflix has truly gone global. During a keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show this morning, Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings turned on the streaming service in 130 countries, including Vietnam, Poland, Russia, India, Nigeria and South Korea. For comparison’s sake, Netflix was live in only 60 countries before today.
The big exception to the list is China, where significant Internet restrictions have held back streaming video. All global content includes Netflix’s catalog of programs and original shows in 21 languages.
