Its subscribers in the country watch twice as much content on their phones as the average viewer elsewhere in the world. Upcoming show 'The Ghost Bride' was made in Malaysia.
Back in July, Netflix revealed the stat of their international subscribers grew from 2.83million members to 91.46 million paid members during the last quarter, which was around 4.7 million fewer new signups they expected from. Nevertheless, the streaming site is planning to add 6.2 million new users in the last quarter.
However, Netflix is yet to comment on its further expansion plans of it's mobile-only tiers to other regions.
The new move is a must for Netflix, as other new streaming sites are on the way to the streaming market such as Disney Plus on November 12, Apple TV Plus on November 1, and NBCUniversal's Peacock in early 2020.
