Netflix to be available in Italy

Netflix confirmed that its services will be available in Italy starting from October. Berlusconi’s Mediaset and Murdoch’s Sky are raising defensive barricades by purchasing the exclusive rights of all the popular shows and series they can afford.

Letting aside the predictable maneuvering by the competitors, will it work? Italy is usually considered a poorly and slowly connected country, but it is also a country which was fully conquered by the US soft power and that should therefore be highly receptive to the Netflix offer.
