Netflix streaming service left Russia and disconnected all Russian subscribers

The Netflix streaming platform stopped operating in the aggressor country on Friday, May 27.

A spokesman for the company said this, according to AFP.

The Netflix site and app have been unavailable since Friday, and a Netflix spokesman has now confirmed that subscribers no longer have access to the content.

“This is an exit from the Russian market,” announced in March, a Netflix spokesman said. It is noted that the company has waited for the end of the current billing cycle to disconnect customers.

Netflix is ​​the world’s leading streaming platform with 221.8 million subscribers at the end of 2021, but in Russia it was a minor player.

In an April letter to shareholders, the company said it had lost 700,000 paid subscribers as a result of leaving Russia.

It will be recalled that the Netflix service may introduce an advertising subscription by the end of the year.

In the first quarter of 2022, the service lost 200,000 subscribers. According to the results of the quarter, such indicators were demonstrated for the first time in 10 years.

In early May, investors sued Netflix over falling subscribers and stock prices.
