Netflix and Orange extend distribution deal to 29 markets across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East

Netflix went truly global back in January 2016 when it launched in 130 new markets, but one of the biggest obstacles to expansion is undoubtedly marketing its service in new regions and encouraging pickup by local viewers. With a major local telecom company on board for the push, Netflix’s job just got that little bit easier. For context, Orange claims 269 million customers across all its markets, including 207 million on mobile and 19 million on broadband. – Paul Sawers, VentureBeat
