netflix Bedroom_Device_shot1-0043_V_Final_0000_L_play_onb2Netflix has confirmed that it will launch in Spain this October, marking the next stage of its international expansion efforts. 

Announcing the move, the subscription streaming firm said that from this autumn web users in Spain will be able to watch a “broad selection of TV series and movies in high-definition or even Ultra HD 4K on nearly any internet-connected screen.”

Series that will be available on the Spanish version at launch include Marvel’s Daredevil, Sense8, Bloodline, Grace and Frankie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Marco Polo

Documentaries lined up for the service include Virunga, and Mission Blue and docuseries Chefs Tables. A number of stand-up comedy specials and the first Netflix Original feature films – including Beasts of No Nation, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon The Green Legend, Jadotville and The Ridiculous 6 – will also appear on Netflix Spain.

“Additionally, younger viewers will find a wide selection of programming for kids. Netflix is fully localised, offering subtitles and dubbing,” said the firm.

A Spanish language version of Netflix is already available in countries across Latin America.

Netflix was tipped earlier this year to launch in Spain and Italy during 2015. In March the service went live in Australia and New Zealand, while the OTT giant confirmed in February that it would launch in Japan later this year.
