News Brief: North Korea gets its own Netflix


Lyndsay Valadez, Reporter

With the addition of  more lenient policy and Manbang, a less offering version of Netflix, videos are now able to be streamed directly to North Koreans’ televisions. Netflix has even changed its twitter description to “Manbang Knockoff.”  

According to the Hustle, Manbang means everywhere. However, Manbang only allows government approved videos. In that mix, Russian and English language courses are available.

While their government has strict control over internet usage, North Korea has more than it’s own Netflix. It also has tablets and computers of its own.
