Netflix, which was created in the United States and is now available in 41 countries, has to-date focused on English-speaking markets in Europe such as Britain, the Netherlands, and the Nordics, although rumors of their arrival in France have been recurrent for years. “Netflix wanted information about the legal conditions that would affect its potential arrival in France,” an official at the president's office said, adding that the executives were also visiting Germany and other European countries. Netflix sells monthly subscriptions that allow users to watch television series and movies via the Internet on their televisions, tablet computers and mobile phones.
