Netflix attracts 100,000 French users in two weeks - report

Thursday 2 October 2014 | 11:16 CET | News
Netflix attracted over 100,000 in France by the end of September, 15 days after the SVOD service's launch in the country, reports Le Figaro, without citing its sources. Canal Plus took 3 years to gain 520,000 subscribers to its rival service CanalPlay. Netflix's numbers have been boosted by its offer of free service for the first month. The company has set itself a target of signing up a third of French homes within 5 to 10 years.
