A problem that afflicts fans on the other side of the Atlantic seems to have come to an end after EBU announced a while ago that Netflix will have the Eurovision shows available on its platform right after the end of its live broadcasting.
On Monday, July 22, all Netflix subscribers in the US will have both the semifinals and the final of Eurovision 2019 available.
Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of all the EBU’s live events, stated:
« The EBU is thrilled that the world’s biggest television entertainment program will now be available to viewers in the US, one of the largest television markets. The US viewers will now enjoy all three fantastic evenings this year for the first time and the entire contest in 2020. This is a perfect timetable with plans to launch an American version of the Contest in 2021 ».
Until recently, it was impossible to watch the contest, as well as all the videos, later on YouTube, as they were blocked, on the other side of the Atlantic.
A very important development that will bring the US closer to the Eurovision Contest, always backing plans to convey the concept in 2021 there!
This news comes as a follow-up to Netflix’s announcement that it is preparing a film about the Eurovision contest, starring Will Ferell.
