Netflix Expands to Cuba, Japan

Netflix has launched in Cuba and announced plans to bring its Internet video service to Japan this fall, as it moves to complete a global rollout by the end of 2016.

Among the original Netflix series now available in Cuba are "House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black," "Marco Polo" and DreamWorks Animation’s "All Hail King Julien" and "The Adventures of Puss in Boots," alongside a range of third-party films and series.

Then this fall, the subscription service will launch in Japan featuring a selection of Japanese TV series and films, as well as Netflix originals.

To facilitate close partnerships with consumer electronics makers and to work with Japanese film and TV creators, Netflix will soon open a regional office in Tokyo. Gregory K. Peters, chief streaming and partnerships officer at Netflix since 2013, has been promoted to general manager of Netflix Japan.

The rollout in Japan will follow the previously announced March expansion of Netflix into Australia and New Zealand.
