Netflix this month announced it is opening a new office in Paris. Netflix’s Paris office will have 40 employees. Netflix says that will significantly increase its investment in France with 20 new French productions and partnerships in 2020.
Paris is Netflix’s fourth office in Europe. The other offices are located in Germany, Spain, and in the United Kingdom.
“It is a real honour to be in France, with its rich culture and history of storytelling. This office is a sign of our long-term commitment to the country, and will enable us to work even more closely with the French creative community on great shows and films that are made in France and watched all around the world”, said Reed Hastings, Founding Chairman and CEO of Netflix.
In 2018, the European Parliament has voted in favor of a quota for local content on streaming services.
