When Netflix went live in Israel last January, many were looking forward to some quality time binge-watching their favorite series and films using the video streaming service. The only catch at the time – no Hebrew subtitles were available.

But not anymore. On Sunday, Netflix released Hebrew subtitles for dozens of films, including hits such as the Matrix trilogy and Batman Begins.
Netflix in Israel includes most, but not all original productions. The popular “House of Cards” series, for example, is not offered in the service, most likely because the local broadcasting rights to the show have already been sold.
The company has its own huge libraries of films and television series that customers can order on-demand. Subscriber can watch the content on a computer, tablet, smart phone; or on television using either a smart television or an external box.
