Popular streaming website Netflix will be available in Spain from Tuesday, eight years after it was launched in the United States.


The company announced in June that the video streaming service would at last be available in Spain, after the country was skipped over in Netflix's last European expansion last year.

Spaniards will be able to sign up to the service from Tuesday, October 20th. 

The service will cost from €7.99 per month and users will be able to access Netflix's wide-ranging catalogue of everything from the latest blockbuster releases, to documentaries and television series, including Netflix originals such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. 

Two other price ranges, €8.99 per month and €11.99 per month, allow users to watch the service in high definition and on more than one screen simultaneously.

CEO Neil Hunt explained in an interview with newspaper El Periódico in early September that most devices sold in Spain within the past 18 months will be Netflix-compatible when the service starts up as TV manufacturers have been prepping their devices in anticipation of Netflix's Spanish launch. 

Vodafone previously announced that it would be the first Spanish cable provider to sign an agreement with Netflix, allowing Vodafone TV households to use a Netflix app through their set-up boxes.

"Television on demand is the best model for the consumer because you can consume what you want, when you want to. You don't have to wait until 7pm to start your content," Hunt told El Periódico. "Television as we know it is going to completely change in the future."
