Netflix and SK Broadband of South Korea settled their legal dispute and began a new alliance

The legal dispute over cost-sharing for network use and maintenance that began in 2020 between Netflix and South Korean ISP SK Broadband has been resolved. While declaring the conflict finished, the two businesses also announced a new alliance and made amends.

Together, they will work to make it easier for users to access and pay for Netflix content on mobile devices and IPTV (B tv). SK Telecom and SK Broadband will also provide a range of price plans and products, including bundled packages.

“With the signing of the alliance, Netflix and SK Broadband will put an end to all controversies and work together as partners going ahead,” Netflix stated.

“This agreement between the parties is the result of our shared fundamental belief of giving consumers top priority.”
