Netflix is negotiating for content rights ahead of likely going to Germany, France


Netflix is trying to lock down content rights ahead of its planned expansion to Europe later this year, according to the Wall Street Journal. The paper is reporting, as we did just last week, that Netflix is eyeing Germany and France in particular – but there are some hurdles with regards to regulations in France, and a bunch of competitors already in place in Germany.

If they offer content OV (Originale Version, wie sie hier in Deutschland sagen), they will have an interesting differentiator. The Cinemas often show films in the original language, but, as I found out recently, the availability of this option from download services is very poor indeed.
