Purpose Of The Report
When Netflix launch into new territories, they must sign content deals with the rights holders of content in that region. As such, different content appears in different Netflix regions. Furthermore, Netflix don’t just roll out US content into every territory, but rather mix it up with local content that suits the cultural temperament of the territory. The Netflix By The Regions Report is a mere snapshot of the sorts of content on offer in each region and how they differ to other Netflix offerings.
Netflix launched in Switzerland in September 2014 at a monthly subscription price of CHF 11.90 (US$11.73). Teleboy VOD and Teleclub Play are the primary competition for Netflix in the market.
A new service, the library on offer feels very empty. TV shows and movies both fail to do much to enthuse or excite.

The content on offer in Switzerland just doesn’t offer enough yet to prove its value. Its limited library holds almost no real value.
