Sign up for Netflix and become rich or poor. Entertainment industry in Kenya will now be on the next level, people are going to come up with ways of gaining money from Netflix, well not everybody. In some homes, Netflix will be nothing but trouble – who will pay all the bills? In addition, who will do homework?
Service providers and media companies have been given a challenge and it’s time to visit the drawing board. Netflix wrote,”your network providers will be forced to reduce their charges.”
After the government turned the nation digital, my neighbor bought the 20Mbps Unlimited High Speed Internet. The guy paid ZUKU Ksh5,299 and charges the neighbors about Ksh1000. I am one of his clients and I can confess the internet is fair. Rumor has it that people are also sharing Gotv channels…i don’t know how that’s possible but guys are good when it comes to internet and wiring stuff.
Netflix is now in 190 countries around the globe making it the best in streaming. “Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global Internet TV network,” cofounder and chief executive Reed Hastings said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.. “With this launch, consumers around the world – from Singapore to St. Petersburg, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo – will be able to enjoy TV shows and movies simultaneously – no more waiting. With the help of the Internet, we are putting power in consumers’ hands to watch whenever, wherever and on whatever device.
While you have been listening to me talk, the Netflix service has gone live in nearly every country in the world except China, where we hope to be in the future.”
Netflix was launched in 2007 and its streaming services were only available in Canada. Now it can be accessed in 190 countries. The company has also added support in other languages like Arabic, Korean and Chinese.
“From today on wards, we will listen and we will learn, gradually adding more languages, more content and more ways for people to engage with Netflix,” said Hastings. “We’re looking forward to bringing great stories from all over the world to people all over the world.”
However, Netflix services are not available in Crimea, North Korea and Syria due to US government restrictions on American companies.
If Netflix gains ground in Kenya, most people may not buy movies from the shop, Kenyans will start streaming original content from the internet. However, the movie guys may come up with movie houses where people will be able to watch streamed shows. Fortunately, the country has a good number of internet providers like Kenya Power, Safaricom and ZUKU.
Internet providers can now come up with a way of improving internet speed across the country. If you want to enjoy original shows, sign up for Netflix and stream.
