Monday 23 November 2015 | 10:13 CET | News
The CEO of Nos, Miguel Almeida, claims that the arrival of streaming service Netflix in Portugal has benefited from a marketing hype fuelled by the media, reports Jornal de Negocios. Almeida said Netflix does not compete with services offered by telecommunications operators, but is complementary and even dependent on their networks to reach customers. He recalled that Nos has its own N Play service, which has a richer content offering and higher quality.
