    Netflix is now available in Cuba for consumers with internet access, the company announced Monday.

    Netflix is expanding its streaming service to Cuba, the company announced Monday.

    Beginning Monday, Cuban consumers with internet access will be able to access popular movies and TV shows with a paid subscription.

    "We are delighted to finally be able to offer Netflix to the people of Cuba, connecting them with stories they will love from all over the world," said Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings.

    Internet access is expected to improve and credit card and debit cards are expected to become more widely available this year.

    In January, the Obama Administration announced an end to America's "outdated approach" to the communist island.

    "Cuba has great filmmakers and a robust arts culture and one day we hope to be able to bring their work to our global audience of over 57 million members," Hastings said.

    Netflix subscriptions start at $7.99 a month.
