Netflix plans to be available all around the world by 2017, but now comes word it's readying a Spain launch later this year.
Spanish newspaper Expansion claimed that Netflix is negotiating with Hollywood studios and distributors, and is looking to launch in Spain in the last three months of the year. The paper cited "diverse sector sources" – one from LG said its smart TVs will come with the Netflix app starting in September, while Samsung also confirmed the streaming app would come on its smart sets.
Netflix has its sights set on global domination. That's certainly ambitious, considering it has around 200 countries to go in just over 18 months.
The streaming service toyed with a Spain launch in 2011, but reportedly decided against it because of the country's high piracy levels.
As well as global expansion, Netflix is making a big push for original programming. The coming few months sees a raft of new series starting on Netflix. 'Better Call Saul', the prequel to 'Breaking Bad', is currently airing, and, like its predecessor, has drawn almost universal praise.
