Netflix launched its service globally in 130 countries around the world including the UAE at CES 2016 yesterday. The service went live as co-founder and chief executive Reed Hastings made the announcement. While largely available in English in most new countries, Netflix has added Arabic, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese to the 17 languages it already supports.
Netflix will not yet be available in China, though the company continues to explore options for providing the service. It also won’t be available in Crimea, North Korea and Syria due to U.S. government restrictions on American companies.
In the UAE, users can try Netflix free for a month, after which monthly plans start from $7.99
