Netflix keeps growth momentum in France with 6.7 million subscribers

Thursday 16 January 2020 | 13:30 CET | News
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in an interview with L'Express that the platform has 6.7 million French subscribers. In September 2019, he told Le Figaro that Netflix's customer base in France had reached just over 6 million and that the company was investing nearly EUR 100 million in local productions. These numbers point to sustained growth in France, where the company previously revealed that subscribers had increased from nearly 3.5 million in April 2018 to over 5 million in February 2019.
