A new Partnership to Offer Extensive Library of Content from the World’s Leading Internet TV Network LAS VEGAS was set on January 6, 2016. LG Electronics announced that LG has initiated a global partnership with Netflix to facilitate the expansion of Netflix’s global on-demand Internet streaming operations beyond the Internet TV network’s already established markets (the Americas, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, and now in Africa). The expansion will bring an extensive library of high-quality content, including 4K HDR-mastered original TV series, to more markets worldwide. LG has been chosen as one of their primary global business partners due to the superior picture quality and performance they lend to the Smart TV industry and the Netflix viewing experience alike.
At the time of Netflix’s launch LG the two firms will combine efforts to provide prepaid access to the Netflix service. Among their acclaimed original TV show series are Marvel’s Daredevil, Orange is the New Black andSense8. The company also plans to provide global members with its HDR-mastered original TV series Marco Polo. At the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 6-9, visitors to LG’s booth (#8204 Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention) were able to watch a special 4K HDR clip from Netflix’s popular Dolby Vision™-mastered Marvel’s Daredevil series.
