American streaming-media giant, Netflix, has decided to extend its services to around 130 countries, including Pakistan. For those not familiar with the way Netflix works, it provides a subscription-based service which allows its customers to watch films, TV shows, documentaries, and original series released by Netflix. Netflix originals, like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Narcos, Daredevil,  have gained huge critical and popular acclaim.

The Netflix website suggests that three packages will be introduced in Pakistan:

  • Basic: $7.99
  • Standard: $9.99
  • Premium: $11.99

As soon as this decision was made public, Pakistanis took to twitter to show their appreciation.
