The expansion was announced by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings during a presentation at a technology conference.

When visiting the company website, people are offered to get registered and for a monthly fee from €8 to €12 to watch items from the offer without limits. The first month is a trial period and is free.

Most films and series are in English, but with some, another language may be selected or subtitles offered; but Slovak is missing.

The service, popular because of conveniently streaming a large selection of series and movies, already shoots its own films and documentaries. In 2016, it is preparing to offer 31 original series and more than 200 original films and documentaries.

They can be watched on several devices: smart TV, notebook or tablet and even a smartphone.

The initial offer seems to be rich, but the popular series House of Cards, for example, is not available in Slovakia, as of now. It is also not known how fast new content will be added, Sme.sk wrote.
