Netflix is now offering its services just about everywhere in the world.

Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings announced during the comapny's live keynote speech at CES 2016 in Las Vegas on Wednesday that the platform has officially launched in several new countries, including India.

Bringing the total amount of countries that offer Netflix services to 130, the new list of countries includes: South Korea, Afghanistan, Angola, Antarctica, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Benin, Bouvet Island, Botswana, Congo, Central African Republic, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Western Sahara, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Gambia, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Heard Island and McDonald Islands.

That means the service can now be accessed in almost every country in the world besides China.

There were rumors that Netflix would be announcing its India launch during its CES press conference, but no one could have predicted that Hastings would launch the platform live while on stage.

Previously, in October 2015, Netlfix expanded its services to Japan, Spain, Portugal and Italy as part of its global expansion strategy.

Netflix revealed that its platform has reached almost half of all U.S. households and 70 million homes globally.  

The popular Internet media streaming service also discussed its plans to release 600 hours of high quality original programming this year, giving the first looks at two new original series The Crown and The Get Down
