Problems That WIll Face Netflix In Nigeria

Nigerians have offered Netflix Inc. free consultancy by advising the movie streaming company of possible hitches it could face in Nigeria. Nigerians who took to social media to share both their excitement and frustration listed data, piracy and power as the possible challenges to Netflix thriving in the most populous black nation.
Netflix Inc’s video-streaming service went live in more than 130 countries including Nigeria on Wednesday, covering almost the entire globe except China, Syria, North Korea, Crimea in a huge global push by Chief Executive Reed Hastings to counter slowing growth in the United States.
As of October 2015, Netflix reported 69.17 million subscribers worldwide, including more than 43 million in the United States.
Nigeria’s movie industry known as Nollywood has struggled to deal with the activities of pirates in the country especially with those at Alaba in Ojo area of Lagos state.
Similarly, Nigeria’s data speed has proved to be a problem over the years despite the leading telcos upping their services.
These two problems including that of electricity might prove to be a bottleneck for Netflix but Nigeria’s population will no doubt be an advantage to the movie streaming company.
Here are some tweets for Netflix Inc.
