“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,” Malobika Banerji, Netflix content director for Southeast Asia, said in a statement. “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.”
The new feature now allows Filipinos to watch Netflix originals like “Stranger Things,” “The Queen’s Gambit,” “Emily in Paris” and “You” in Filipino. New releases, including the film “The School for Good and Evil” and the series “The Watcher,” currently offer Filipino dubbing and subtitles.
Subscribers can access the feature across all devices by opening their account’s “Manage Profiles” section, clicking on their profile and setting their preferred language to “Filipino.”
