Netflix is now available worldwide

CES 2016 isn’t only about products. Services managed to make their way to Las Vegas as well, and, one of the most recent announcements comes from Netflix. During a recent keynote at CES, the company announced — and flipped the switch — on worldwide availability, adding more than 130 new countries around the world to its portfolio of markets where it is available.

While English still remains the main language for Netflix, the company also added Arabic, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese to the 17 languages it already supports. The service, however, is not yet available in China, though Netflix is working on changing this; due to U.S. government restrictions on American companies, Netflix is also not available in Crimea, North Korea and Syria.

You can try out Netflix for free for an entire month, after which you can decide whether you want to stay with the service, and start your paid subscription (prices vary, depending on region), or not.
