Bring out the popcorn and soda if you haven’t already, for it’s likely that you’ll be spending hours enjoying shows on Netflix.
Netflix dropped a major bombshell at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, announcing that its streaming service would now be available in over 130 new countries, including Singapore.
For the uninformed, Netflix has a whole bunch of original series, like Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Orange is the New Black, as well as licensed movies and TV shows, in its ever-expanding catalog. 2016 will see 31 new and returning original series, two dozen original feature films and documentaries, a wide range of stand-up comedy specials and 30 original kids series thrown into the mix.
Netflix works on virtually any device that has an Internet connection, be it personal computers, tablets, smartphones, Smart TVs or game consoles. Streaming quality is determined by the subscriber’s Internet bandwidth, which shouldn’t be an issue in broadband-rich Singapore. Expect high-definition visuals, as high as Ultra HD 4K quality, and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound audio for most available content.
Pricing starts from S$10.98 a month for the Basic service, which only streams to one device in standard definition quality. The Standard plan, which costs S$13.98, will stream high-definition content on two devices, and the S$16.98 Premium package will come with the full works, namely ultra high-definition content across four devices.
