The streaming service Netflix announced on Monday, 9, that it is now also available in Cuba. The novelty makes Netflix the first US company to take advantage of the United States’ recent decision to relax the trade restrictions imposed on Cuba since the 1960s.
To access the service, users must pay US $ 8, in addition to having an international payment method and internet access.
“We are delighted to finally be able to offer Netflix to the people of Cuba, connecting them with stories they will love from around the world,” he said in communication Netflix co-founder and CEO, Reed Hastings.
In Latin America, Netflix operations started in 2011 and currently, the region is responsible for more than 5 million users.
