Netflix Inc, the world’s largest video streaming service, may soon spread its wings to India.
The Hindu Business Line, which reported the development first by quoting unnamed sources, said that Netflix may announce its India launch at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas later this week.
For its India foray, Netflix is expected to join hands with either Bharti Airtel or Reliance Jio so that the company can ride on the telcos’ 4G telephony infrastructure.

Netflix is said to have commissioned ‘Bollywood-themed’ original content for its India launch. Netflix has a stated gloal of becoming a near global player by 2016-end.
