Netflix is expanding aggressively in Asia. The company confirmed today that it will launch in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea by early 2016. […] South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore collectively are home to 85 million people, and there’s plenty of competition. Local video streamers including China’s LeTV and iQiyi have been targeting Hong Kong, and local broadcaster HKTV has re-invented itself as an online TV channel. Singapore is home to iFlix and the upcoming HOOQ, which is affiliated with Singtel. – Josh Horwitz, Quartz
