As one of the most popular VOD services across the world, hosting thousands of TV shows and movies along with its own original series, Netflix will be expanding into the Middle East by the end of 2016.

The company confirmed it will be launching in the Middle East soon within an email to IGN ME. In the email, Netflix's Joris Evers said: "We plan to complete our global expansion by the end of 2016. Of course the Middle East is part of that, hence our hiring."

The 'hiring' that Evers is referring to includes a selection of new regional job listings posted on the company's website. The positions available include marketing planning and analysis manager EMEA, senior manager - EMEA marketing insights, and social media manager for Middle East.

While the job listings make it clear that Netflix is indeed planning to extend its services to the Middle East region, it is not clear whether the company will have an official presence here.

Netflix has yet to officially comment on the Middle East expansion.
