Netflix is a service that’s available in over 130 countries and enjoys millions of users watching TV shows and movies that it has available every day. People across the world have given up their old-fashioned TV in favor of Netflix and its streaming services.
However, you may know that Netflix has a content availability issue depending on the region you are in. For example, Netflix US has more than 5,500 TV shows and movies, a lot of which you can’t watch if you are in other regions.
This is why American Netflix has, by far, one of the largest libraries of movies and TV shows in the world. Today, we’ll take a look at what’s new on Netflix America – what movies you should check out, what TV shows you could pick up, and what Netflix Originals you should definitely watch.
Netflix America Library
Before talking about the new TV shows and movies, it is important that we look at the number of titles that are available in the US. When buying a Netflix subscription, most people think that they have everything available and ready to watch, only to later find that they lack that one movie or TV show that they really wanted to watch.
For example, the country with the most available titles at the moment is Japan, with about 6,000 titles. It is followed by the US, Canada, and then the UK. When compared to the US, Netflix UK falls short by about 500 TV shows and movies.
Naturally, those 500 shows are not some that people would gladly miss or not watch at all. These are usually high-budget movies/titles that could make a great addition to the watchlist of every movie/TV show enthusiast.
This is the main reason why Netflix America has the upper hand when compared to the rest of the world that has Netflix available.
