Deutsche Telekom has extended a deal with Netflix to make content from the Stranger Things producer available to all of its subsidiaries in Europe.

The operator’s customers in Germany, Poland and the Netherlands already have access to the video on-demand company’s portfolio, but the new deal means subscribers in countries such as Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia will now be able to watch the likes of House of Cards and Mindhunter.

The company did not give a timeline for when it would be rolled out to these new markets.

Deutsche Telekom also zero rates Netflix as part of its StreamOn offering, for which it has hired Justin Bieber to help advertise it.

Thomas Kicker, Senior Vice President Group Partnering of Deutsche Telekom, said: “We want to ensure the best content offering and TV experience for our customers and will work with Netflix to further expand our great partnership.”

Maria Ferreras, Netflix’s VP Business Development EMEA, said: “This partnership builds on our already strong relationship with Deutsche Telekom.

“We are thrilled to open a new world of exclusive and critically-acclaimed entertainment for millions of Deutsche Telekom’s TV and Mobile customers in Europe.”

Orange and Altice signed similar deals in September and June respectively.

Last month, Netflix promised to spend $7-8 billion on new series in 2018 as it revealed its latest financials and talked up its telco partnerships.
