The Internet service called Netflix, which delivers video programming online, is expanding worldwide.

提供网上视频节目的互联网服务公司Netfilx在全球范围内不断扩大。

The company is now providing the service in 190 countries around the world. As of January 6, Netflix service is available in 130 more countries, up from the 60 it already serves.

该公司目前在全球190个国家提供服务。截至1月6日,Netfilx在已向60个国家提供服务的基础上,又新上线了130多个国家。

The Chief Executive Officer of Netflix, Reed Hastings, made the announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

该公司首席执行官里德·哈斯廷斯(Reed Hastings)在内华达州拉斯维加斯消费电子展上宣布了这一消息。

“Right now, you are witnessing the birth of a global TV network,” he said at the event. “Whether you are in Sydney or St. Petersburg, Singapore or Seoul, Santiago or Saskatoon, you now can be part of the Internet TV revolution.”

他在发布会上表示,“现在你正在目睹一家全球性电视网络的诞生。不管你是在悉尼还是圣彼得堡,新加坡还是首尔,圣地亚哥还是萨斯卡通,你都可以成为互联网电视革命的一部分。”

A Netflix statement said, “Pricing is fairly similar around the world. New markets will be priced starting at $7.99 per month or the local currency equivalent.”

Netfilx公司在声明表示,“服务价格在全球范围内非常相近。新市场起步定价为7.99美元每月或等值当地货币。”

A free trial for one month is offered in the countries where the service is available.

该公司向服务新上线的这些国家提供了一个月的免费试用。

Some of the countries where Netflix will not be offered include China, North Korea and Syria.

Not all programs available on Netflix will be offered in all countries. But some Netflix original shows can be streamed in all 190 countries. They include productions such as Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Narcos, Sense8, Grace and Frankie, and Marco Polo.

并非Netfilx的全部节目都会在所有国家提供。只有一些Netfilx的原创节目能够在所有190个国家传播。这些节目包括《超胆侠》、《杰茜卡·琼斯》、《缉毒特警》、《超感猎杀》、《格蕾丝与弗兰基》以及《马可·波罗》。

Until recently, Netflix supported program content in 17 different languages in addition to English. The company now has added three more languages. They are Arabic, Korean, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese. Not all shows are available in all languages. For now, some are only available in English.

直到最近,Netfilx公司的节目内容支持除英语之外的17种语言。该公司目前已经新增了3种语言。他们分别是阿拉伯语、韩语以及简体和繁体中文。并非全部节目都支持所有语言。现在有些节目只支持英语。

Reed Hastings noted that, “From today onwards, we will listen and we will learn, gradually adding more languages, more content and more ways for people to engage with Netflix. We’re looking forward to bringing great stories from all over the world to people all over the world.”

哈斯廷斯指出,“从今天开始,我们将会去倾听和学习,逐步增加更多语言,更多内容,以及更多让人们参与Netfilx的途径。我们期待将世界各地的精彩故事带给世界各地的人们。”
