Netflix First Produced Show Lilyhammer Now Available

Posted on Feb 6 2012 - 10:44pm by Kyle

Last year Netflix announced that they were going to add their own Netflix produced content to the thousands and thousands of shows and movies available on the Netflix platform.

Their first show, Lilyhammer, is now available. Lilyhammer is a story about a former mob guy, played by Steve Van Zandt, from Sopranos and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. After a life as a New York mobster Van Zandt’s character moves to Norway to start over.

Needless to say this show is a big hit in Norway where it’s already getting 1.2 million viewers each week. Theverge has found out that Lilyhammer is not available to UK Netflix users but it is available in the United States. It’s a web series of sorts with 8 minute episodes.

Netflix had over 2 billion hours of streaming in Q4. That’s an impressive number but Netflix is still hoping to improve on that with the introduction of their own produced content.
