Movie lovers will have to make do with Netflix’s aloma, the UK’s most-watched TV show, this week after the company’s streaming service came under fire for blocking the first few episodes of the show, which stars T.V. personality Mariah Carey.
A spokeswoman for Netflix told The Hindu that the UK streaming service has blocked “a few episodes” of the aloma channel, but “there’s still lots of content for you to discover”.
“We’re not blocking any specific episodes,” the spokeswoman said, adding that the company “wouldn’t be able to confirm that it is currently blocked in the US or in the other territories in which it’s available”.
The spokesperson also said Netflix was working with the Indian streaming platform Tata to create a “Netflix-specific” service.
Tata also said that its aloma service will offer “top quality content”, such as shows like ‘Alma: The American Indian’ and ‘Daggers’ as well as “more original shows”.””
The service will launch in India in the near future and is currently in the process of being rolled out across the country.”
Tata also said that its aloma service will offer “top quality content”, such as shows like ‘Alma: The American Indian’ and ‘Daggers’ as well as “more original shows”.
“The Indian aloma platform is already in the midst of expanding into India and we have already signed up a number of channels, including Aaj Tak, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Bhaiya.
We will be working with Tata to further expand aloma in India,” the spokesperson said.
Tata has said it will be launching aloma channels in India as soon as it gets clearance from the US authorities to do so.
