Netflix to close Paris office after two years

Wednesday 24 August 2016 | 15:45 CET | News
Netflix plans to close its office in Paris, where it employs less than ten staff, reports Les Echos quoting a company spokesperson. The Paris office opened less than two years ago to support the launch of Netflix's services in France in September 2014. It will be replaced by Netflix's existing base in Amsterdam, where the company inaugurated its European headquarters in March 2015. Netflix also has an office in the UK, which was its first European market.
