Netflix and chill right here in Ghana

Netflix is an on-demand stream provider of hundreds of television shows and movies. “Streaming” means that you can watch a video file as it loads, rather than waiting for it to fully download before you watch it. With your television, you have to wait for your show to air or you may have to record it if you know you’ll miss it – but with Netflix, you’re able watch your favourite shows and movies anytime, anywhere.

Netflix was established in 1997 in Scotts Valley, California by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings. The thought of Netflix came to Hastings when he was compelled to pay $40 in late fines in the wake of returning Apollo 13 well past its due date. The Netflix site was dispatched on April 14, 1998 with just 30 employees and 925 works accessible for rent through a customary pay-per-rental model.

Netflix’s reasonable worth now remains at $32.9 billion; a number that surpasses the $30.6 billion estimation of the CBS system. Netflix added 4.04 million users in the last three months of 2015, after going worldwide. It smashed its final quarter income in 2015 and the stock is up just about 9%. $1.82 billion in Q4 income, up 23% year-on-year and barely short of the $1.83 billion expected by Wall Street. This is largely the effect from the extension of the streaming service worldwide.

The organization first started offering instant streaming service to the worldwide business sector in 2010. On January 6, 2016 at, Netflix declared a noteworthy universal venture into 130 new regions; with this development, the organization advanced that its administration would now be accessible almost “around the whole world”. We have it across Africa, the launch received mixed responses with some asking if DStv will drop its monthly subscription fee and whether Netflix would accept payment methods like Local Visa.

With Netflix, you can watch your most loved films and shows so long as you have an Internet connection, you can stream videos from Netflix on:

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Smart TVs
  • Computers (desktop, laptop, Mac)
  • Gaming Consoles (Playstation, Xbox)

When you sign into your Netflix account you will need to pick your profile, which can be secret key bolted to evade individuals taking your record or your children getting in and watching things which won’t not be fitting.

On the innovative side Netflix’s progressively scaling streams mean you don’t have to pick the quality level you need to watch. On the off chance that your data transmission is low it will convey only the standard definition forms, yet in the event that you have the equipment and the capacity it will go as far as possible up to 4K Ultra HD resolutions if accessible.

Unlike DStv where you pay GH¢ 168 for a premium monthly subscription and Google Play Movies which is currently available in 102 countries and only 14 African countries, and TV shows are available only in Australia, Canada,France, Germany, Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom. With Netflix’s success on going worldwide, we anticipate Google Play Movies, Amazon, Hulu and other will follow suit.

Netflix is one of the least complex streaming service around, you pay a month to month charge – which you can cross out whenever – and after that get boundless access to its full scope of motion pictures. Netflix is the best all-round streaming service for TV and movies. It’s a reasonable cost and the picture quality is wonderful. The 30-day trial alone will have you snared!

  1. Netflix here in Ghana must accept our mobile money terms here and also part of their payment option because not all of us here in Africa do haveor useVisa,MasterCard and others..MTN mobile money and other networks dominate more of our transactions in our money side here in Ghana..So please add mobile money payment to your payments option.
    Thank you

    • Glad I can watch Netflix in Ghana. I was concerned that my grand kids will be hired out of their senses without their TV shows when they visit home.

  2. Good to hear …
    But Netflix have to add mtn mobile money to their mode of payment because not everyone uses visa card or PayPal,most of our transactions and payment is denominated by mtn momo. …when that is done a lot of people will use Netflix, Netflix you can link payment to the dpo market like others do …it’s a bit more easy …as it stands many people are limited in signing up h Netflix due to the terms of payment ..
    Thank you
