Netflix is now available in 130 new countries around the world, with the streaming giant making the announcement at CES 2016.The service went live during a keynote by co-founder and chief executive Reed Hastings, who described it as the “birth of a new global internet TV network”.

“With this launch, consumers around the world – from Singapore to St. Petersburg, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo – will be able to enjoy TV shows and movies simultaneously, no more waiting,” Hastings commented.

“With the help of the internet, we are putting power in consumers’ hands to watch whenever, wherever and on whatever device.”

Largely available in English in most new countries, Netflix has added Arabic, Korean and simplified and traditional Chinese to the 17 languages it supports.

“From today onwards, we will listen and we will learn, gradually adding more languages, more content and more ways for people to engage with Netflix,” Hastings commented.

Netflix states it continues to explore options for providing the service in China.

In 2016, Netflix states it plans to release 31 new and returning original series, two dozen original feature films and documentaries, a wide range of stand-up comedy specials and 30 original kids series.
