marco polo netflix

Netflix is coming to southern Europe this autumn. It's set to hit Italy, Spain and Portugal in October, the firm has announced.

It's part of Netflix's global expansion. The company has previously said it wants to be available in 200 countries – i.e. almost everywhere in the world – by the end of 2016.

It's currently available in 55 countries, including Australia and New Zealand, where it recently launched. It's also expected to come to Japan this year, its first Asian territory.

Viewers in Italy and Spain will be able to watch the streaming service with Portuguese subtitles.

Netflix is yet to announce pricing for these markets. Last autumn, it launched in six European countries, costing €7.99 a month. In the UK, the service costs £5.99 a month.

Customers in Italy, Spain and Portugal will be able to watch most of Netflix's hit shows on the service, including 'Marvel's Daredevil', 'Sense8', 'Bloodline', 'Grace & Frankie', 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' and 'Marco Polo'. However, 'House of Cards' and 'Orange is the New Black' are already licensed to TV networks in these countries, so won't be available via the service.

Netflix will launch its own feature films later this year.
