Netflix goes live in Belgium and Luxembourg, taking it to 6 new countries in Europe this week

Netflix has completed a busy week in Europe after launching its video streaming service in Belgium and Luxembourg. These launches follow its hotly-anticipated arrival in France, and launches in Germany, Austria and Switzerland earlier this week and are part of its ambitious European expansion program.

The company says it is targeting an estimated 63 million households with broadband across these six countries. The Netflix service itself is available for €7.99 in EU countries, and 11.90 Swiss Francs in Switzerland.

In addition to Netflix treasures like Orange is The New Black, and its new comedy Bojack Horseman, the company says it will deliver original programming that “will be only on Netflix in these countries,” as it seeks to broaden its appeal to this new audience.
