Netflix is expanding its European operations with a new Central and Eastern Europe hub in Warsaw, Poland.
The new office is set to open later this year.
“It’s been seven years since we started the Netflix journey in Central and Eastern Europe – a region with deep creative traditions and brilliant creative talent,” said Larry Tanz, Netflix EMEA’s vice president of original series. “In 2016 we localised our service in Poland. Soon after that Netflix became available in Romanian, Czech, Hungarian, Croatian and Ukrainian.
“The Netflix office in Warsaw is a natural next step for us and will help build long-term cooperation in the region as well as deepen existing ties, creating new opportunities for content creators and producers,” he added.
“The creativity and potential of the local industry make Warsaw a great place to base our business across Central and Eastern Europe.”
According to Netflix, it has invested $115m in Polish originals and created more than 2,600 jobs for actors, scriptwriters, directors and below-the-line crews.
