During their keynote at CES 2016 earlier today, Netflix announced that they have launched the service in 130 additional countries, meaning the streaming service is now available in nearly every country in the world, apart from China.

The announcement was made by Netflix’s chief executive Reed Hastings, during his keynote speech, when he also confirmed that Netflix will be offering new HDR content later this year.

HDR allows TVs to display millions more colours than the standard definition, with a wider dynamic range that has added shades of brightness in between black and white.

Some say that this is such a huge step, that it is greater than the jump from 1080p to 4K content.

During the keynote, Netflix also providing those who attended the event the first look at some new shows, including The Crown, which is a biopic of Queen Elizabeth II starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith, and The Get Down, which is a musical drama about New York’s disco scene in the 1970s.

Finally, they also teased a new documentary series presented by the comedian Chelsea Handler, called Chelsea Does.
