Here is some interesting Netflix News that is all about how many titles that you can watch. A completely new survey done by Comaparitech shows that users in the world pay different for what Netflix provides. Here in Norway, we pay a much higher price for Netflix compared to users in many other countries like Japan or Turkey.
This Netflix News Reveals large price Difference from country to country
Comparitech is a research company that focuses on technology and consumer goods, shows in a new study that there are large price differentials from country to country. The variation does not necessarily appear in the price of the subscription itself, but appears when you look at the contents of the library you can access.
Comparitech has investigated in how much content Netflix users in 24 different countries have access to. Furthermore, they have compared the price variations between the countries which lead to our article about this topic.
Japan got access to a library of 5986 titles in Netflix
The figures from Comparitech show that you get the most value for money in Japan. Here you pay 5.25 EURO per month and you can access a library of 5986 titles.
In Norway where Distrita is located, you pay between 9.34 EURO and 14.59 EURO per month for Netflix. That gives Norwegian viewers access to 3318 titles. By comparison, British Netflix viewers can quote in 5230 titles, north American users (not Canada) have access to 5746 titles and Japanese users 5986 titles!!! Which is a huge difference indeed.
Turkey is the most affordable place to watch Netflix
Looking at price only, Turkey is one of the most affordable countries to watch Netflix content on-line. There their monthly subscription is only 2.83 EURO.
It really looks like the Scandinavian countries dominate the list at the other end of the scale. Denmark is on 1st place! Norway is sixth most expensive, hit by the Faroe Islands, Denmark, Greenland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
The communications agency emphasizes that the image is more complicated than what appears at Comparitech. The differences between the countries in the survey are simplified, and there are many factors that play in, according to Släger. For example, some countries have larger subscription groups and therefore benefit from large-scale divisions.

Do you feel that it is way too expensive to watch Netflix in your country? We have been travelling around and our Netflix subscription follows where we go which is great. Reason for these big content differences, must have something to do with local content rights and what’s popular or not.
Now you should get a good VPN service
It is good to know now because of this intensive conclusion by Comparitech that when going to Japan. But if you want to have the cheapest experience. Then it is to watch Netflix in Turkey.
You can also get tons of titles in Netflix if you got a good VPN service! So, you don’t need to be in Japan to get this amount of titles at all, which is the country with most titles in the library.
