BUCHAREST, 23rd May 2017 -- Netflix, the world's leading internet television network, today launched a fully localized Romanian user interface complete with Romanian subtitles and dubbing, covering thousands of hours of the world’s favourite TV shows and films, including acclaimed Netflix original programming.
With a one month free trial and a subsequent monthly subscription fee starting at EUR 7.99, Netflix members can enjoy a wide variety of series and films, from critically-acclaimed Netflix original series like Stranger Things and House of Cards to iconic U.S and European and films and series, plus documentaries and a wide range of programs for kids. New Netflix original series and films are made available around the world at the same time, with all episodes available to watch at once.
"We are delighted to offer a more local Netflix experience in Romanian where members can enjoy a variety of TV shows and movies - everything from globally popular Netflix original series to anime, kids content to stand-up comedies,” said Jonathan Friedland, Chief Communication Officer at Netflix. “Romania knows great entertainment and now it’s even easier to watch the world's favourite shows on Netflix anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected device and at the same time as the rest of the world.”
Apart from the language localization, members will also have access to exclusive series and films in Ultra HD 4K and HDR. Upcoming Netflix original films include the highly-awaited War Machine, starring Brad Pitt and Sir Ben Kingsley, Okja starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton and Paul Dano; and Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. For original series, they're Netflix award-winning shows like Orange is the New Black and The Crown; and global phenomena such as 13 Reasons Why and Gilmore Girls. The service also offers iconic American shows and films such as Suits, Arrow, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Breaking Bad, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and The Amazing Spider Man.
Netflix offers a great entertainment experience with many titles available in high-definition with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. Advanced recommendation technologies with up to five user profiles help members discover entertainment they'll love.
For mobile users, Netflix offers cellular data controls to help better manage how much data members use when streaming on cellular networks, giving a greater choice whether there are on an unlimited mobile plan or one that’s more restrictive. With fast.com - a simple-to-use website that helps people see how fast their Internet connection is, whether on mobile or broadband - we offer another tool that consumers can use for greater insight and control of their Internet service.
And for people on the go, they can seamlessly download most of the catalogue and watch it later without an internet connection, making the most of an airplane or commuting trip.
