Netflix Now Streaming in 190 Countries

As of today, the video channel Netflix is in nearly every country in the world.

The streaming video service is now available in 130 more countries, including India, Nigeria, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.

But several countries are still off limits. Netflix service won't be available in Crimea, North Korea and Syria due to U.S. government restrictions on American companies.

The company says it's working to open its service in China, but will likely find challenges there as well. Media content in China remains heavily censored by the government and many websites including google and Facebook are blocked.
