Reed Hastings Netflix - H 2015

The streaming giant is offering a subscription price in line with the cost in other European countries.

Netflix will launch Oct. 20 in Spain, the company announced Wednesday on its Twitter account, adding #HolaNetflix.

The company said it will charge $8.95 (€7.99) per month for its basic plan, which allows only one high-definition connection at a time, and $11.19 (€9.99) per month for the standard plan, allowing two simultaneous high-definition connections. The premium plan allows four simultaneous Ultra HD 4K connections and costs $13.42 (€11.99) each month.  

The prices are in line with the rate hike implemented earlier this year in other European countries.

Netflix will be available on smartphones, tablets, video consoles and computers with Internet connections, in addition to Apple TV and Google Chromecast. The streaming giant has also already announced an agreement with Vodafone Spain to offer its service as part of the operator’s Vodafone TV package.

Netflix will offer original series like Daredevil, Sense8, Grace and Frankie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Marco Polo immediately and incorporate original series like Jessica Jones over the course of the coming year. The company said it would make more content announcements soon.
