Netflix has launched in an unexpected country: Cuba

Netflix’s aggressive international expansion has brought to a rather unexpected country: Cuba. Given the historical tensions between America and Cuba it was quite surprising to see Netflix launch in the country but it does follow along with the recent trend of improved relations between the two nations. 

In a clear sign of improving relations between the U.S. and Cuba, Netflix has launched its video-on-demand (VOD) streaming service in the tiny Caribbean nation. This move is in line with Netflix’s current aggressive expansion program, with it recently announcing plans to enter Asia via Japan, while a number of other new market launches are on the cards in 2015. Cuba, however, is a notable new territory for Netflix, particularly given the historical tensions between the country and Netflix’s home nation. President Barack Obama recently introduced new rules designed to alleviate travel and trade restrictions against Cuba, which came shortly after the countries revealed they would seek to re-establish diplomatic relations.
