Yes, it’s really true! The world’s premier on-demand streaming media service, Netflix, is now available in Indonesia.
It’s awesome, but don’t feel too special. Starting today, Netflix is also available in 129 other new countries around the world as part of a major global push by the company. In fact, the only countries Netflix is currently not available in is Syria, Crimea, North Korea and China.
As for Indonesia, users here can sign up for a free trial month of the service starting today. Plans range from Rp. 109,000 per month to Rp 169,000 per month. You’ll need a credit card to sign up.
From our brief time using the service, it seems like Indonesians have access to just about all of the content available in other countries, including Netflix original series like “Daredevil”, “Master of None” and “Making a Murderer”. Although strangely, we couldn’t find one of Netflix’s most popular original shows, “House of Cards”.
Nevertheless, for those of us in Indonesia who love movies and TV shows and want to be able to watch them without having to resort to pirating, this is truly a glorious day. Let the Netflix and chilling commence!
