The Greek-American Chief Content Officer of Netflix, Ted Sarandos, vowed to expand Netflix on a global scale this year and he has now done it by expanding to multiple new countries including Greece.
Greece was one of 130 countries the Netflix service now reaches in an unprecedented global move. Now the service covers pretty much every country in the world except for certain select places like China.
The service will work the same exact way in Greece, except each country can make slight adjustments to the specific series and films available through Netflix.
This move has been in the works for some time, as Sarandos had stated as far back as February that his simple strategy for his company’s future is to “Get more global.”
Greeks seem pretty excited by this development if social media is any indication, as many users on Twitter such as Dimitris Paterakis sent out messages along the lines of “This is a proud day for Greece, a day of joy! Netflix finally operates in our beautiful country. Three cheers :)”.
