Like in neighbouring Germany, internet users in the Alpine republic can access the OTT service using a connected TV set, PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet or games console for a subscription fee starting at €7.99 per month.
The line-up available at www.netflix.at comprises movies, series, comedy shows, documentaries and children’s programmes. Local Austrian productions are not part of the offering at this stage.
