Online movie and television series streaming service Netflix has officially gone live in 130 countries including South Africa on Wednesday night.

Co-founder and chief executive officer of Netflix, Reed Hastings, made the announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Amid the announcement, the South African Netflix website was switched on at www.netflix.com/za on Wednesday and advertised a price of $7.99 (R126) per month with a free month's trial.

Other additional countries to get the service included Russia, India, and South Korea, according to the announcement from Netflix.

Netflix, which started in the US, last year expressed a goal to expand to an extra 150 countries across the globe.
