Netflix reportedly eyeing Netherlands, France, Belgium

NetFlixNetflix is reportedly looking at the Netherlands, France and Belgium as new European launch markets, according to local reports.

Belgian communications news site Bloovi reported that Netflix was gearing up for a Belgian launch before the end of the year, while Le Soir reported that France and the Netherlands were likely to go live first, followed by Belgium by the end of the year.

Netflix said last month that it plans to launch in an additional European market in the second half of the year, promising more details on the deployment in July.

In a posting on the firm’s job site earlier this year, it said it was looking to hire language experts “to provide localisation for the Netflix experience in the following languages: Turkish, Dutch, Hindi, French, and Korean.”

The service has rolled out in the UK and Ireland and, as first reported by TBI, in Sweden and across Scandinavia. Its other international launch was in Latin America. A planned roll out in Spain was shelved.
