Commies, Meet Ross and Rachel: Netflix Expands To Cuba

Outreach.

Internet movie and television streaming service Netflix has launched in Cuba, as diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba continue to thaw.

Netflix said its content, such as series House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, will be available to anyone with international payment cards.

On 15 January, the US announced new rules that ease long-running sanctions against Cuba.

A trade embargo has been in place since 1962.

Nothing else has worked since Castro took over, let’s see if bombarding them with American pop culture will do the trick. Of course, there are probably on about fourteen people who can afford $7.99 a month there right now. If all goes according to plan, we can soon get the commie elite binge-watching old American shows and simply turn the island into a resort while they’re distracted.
