Orange and Netflix have renewed the agreement signed in 2014 for the distribution of Netflix for Orange TV customers in France, and have expanded their partnership to all countries in which the Orange Group is present.
This strategic partnership will enable the Group’s subsidiaries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East to distribute Netflix in the future, bringing their customers the rich, globally popular, exclusive content of this service to all their screens: licensed and original TV series, movies, stand up comedies, documentaries and children's programmes. Netflix is the home of award-winning shows like Stranger Things , Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and The Crown; and global phenomena such as 13 Reasons Why and Narcos. Orange has been a Netflix distributor in France since 2014 and recently in Spain.
Netflix will be offered to Orange Poland customers in the coming months as part of its TV offers. Other launches will follow in 2018.
“We aim to offer the best content to our customers.” notes Stéphane Richard, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Orange, “That is why we were the first to distribute Netflix in France, back in October 2014, and this new agreement allows us to strengthen our ambition at an international level.”
Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO, said,
“This partnership builds on our strong relationship with Orange in France, offering in the future, the possibility for millions of our customers in multiple countries to enjoy the world's leading internet entertainment service seamlessly, in one place.”
