[NETFLIX] [ORANGE FR] - As part of their move into continental Europe, Netflix concludes deal with Orange France.
Netflix has struck a deal with France's Orange network providing French consumers with Netflix internet streaming through Orange FR set top boxes from November 2014.
Originally launching in France on September 15 with Bouygues Telecom, Netflix has also wanted the Orange France partnership - the link up with Bouygues, Orange France’s competitor, leveraged the deal.
This is the sixth European company targeted by Netflix in the last couple of months. On September 19, Belgium and Luxembourg signed to receive Netflix and in the past two weeks, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland have joined the Netflix community of over 50 million members in more than 40 countries.
As part of the package, Netflix has situated headquarters in Amsterdam, a decision that upset the French due to Netflix now being able to avoid strict rules about how much French-language content it is obligated to show. Netflix, however, released a press statement saying, ‘Netflix is fully localized, offering subtitles and dubbing on foreign language movies and TV shows. In the coming months, more titles will be added, building upon the great choices available today.’
