Netflix set to launch in Italy in Q4 – report

Wednesday 29 April 2015 | 09:53 CET | News
Netflix is set to launch its video streaming service in Italy by the end of this year, according to an unnamed source cited by Variety. The industry source revealed at the BLS Film Conference held in South Tyrol - Alto Adige that the launch could come as early as October. However, the company still has concerns about the slow overall connection speeds in Italy's 14 million broadband homes, which represent a major stumbling block to OTT content delivery. Netflix didn't confirm or deny the report, simply reiterating that the company plans to go global by the end of 2016.
