Earlier today during a keynote speech at CES 2016, we learned that Netflix is working with LG to extend its streaming service throughout the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
More specially so, the service is NOW AVAILABLE IN SOUTH AFRICA. In a press release, LG said the two will “combine efforts” to provide prepaid access. Last year Netflix mentioned how it was working with partners to make it easier to tune into streaming, and it appears that LG is an ideal partner for that with its newly upgraded webOS 3.0 that puts streaming video on par with other sources.
To subscribe, the cheapest package will set you back $7.99 per month and offers a single stream in standard definition, while its mid-tier plan will set you a further $9.99 and lets you watch up to 2 simultaneous streams in HD.
Its most expensive package costs $11.99 per month, and offers up to 4 simultaneous high definition and UHD streams. Content exec Ted Sarandos said Netflix will offer 600 hours of original programming in 2016, before previewing trailers from upcoming series The Crown, and Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down.
