The wait is over for Indian audiences, as online streaming giant Netflix is coming to India. If reports are to be believed, the service will be launched in India as early as next week.
The popular on-demand service which has already entered Asian markets by plans to establish its presence in Singapore and Hong Kong, is expected to make the announcement in the Consumer Electronic Show, which will be held in Las Vegas next week, NDTV reports.
As a brand Netflix is already popular for original series like Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards, it already has 69 million users and plans to double the number of original shows to 31, according to a report in The Times of India.
The Hindu reported that, Netflix could enter India through a partnership with a local telecom firm to take advantage of the 4G networks that make watching high quality video streaming possible on a mobile anywhere.
Netflix, which is already facing competition from Amazon's Prime video service, has been aggressive in its approach to expand into global markets and take an edge over other services.
