In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a device got introduced, which was dubbed the local Netflix by many people.
The device is called Manbang. It connects to the country’s intranet, allowing users to search, watch documentaries, or view one of five TV-channels. They can also on-demand access English and Russian language learning content.
Perhaps the country is trying to imitate the West, because, in May, a clone of Facebook was found on a North Korean internet address. It got removed in no time (or was it just hidden from us?) – users began to make spoof profiles of Kim Jong-Un, the country’s leader as well.
As the North Korean population’s majority cannot access the Internet, they can only use an intranet. Who knows what the intranet can contain?
