Starting today, Netflix will have a user interface (UI) available in Filipino. This new feature allows subscribers to navigate the UI, read titles and synopses, plus watch shows and movies with Filipino subtitles and in Filipino dubbing.
This is quite helpful to viewers who not only wish to navigate Netflix in Filipino, but also enjoy Tagalized versions of popular TV shows and movies.
Subscribers will be able to easily switch their profile to Filipino from the language option in the ‘Manage Profiles’ section on their desktop, TV, or mobile browsers. The complete Netflix experience in the PH’s native language is available across all devices – from member sign-up, to search function, and even on payment options.
“At Netflix, we believe our members should be able to choose their viewing experience, whether it be the genre, format, or language of the content. We are very happy that our Filipino members will now have the option to enjoy their favorite Netflix content from all over the world with Filipino subtitles and dubbing, should they prefer to watch as such,” said Malobika Banerji, Netflix Content Director for Southeast Asia.
Each of the five Netflix profiles in each account now have the option to choose its own language setting. It’s worth noting that the Filipino UI feature is also available to members outside of the Philippines.
