Netflix will be streamed to the Moon in the near future. Astronauts on future lunar missions will be able to watch Netflix’s favorite movies and series and communicate with family and friends via WhatsApp. It is said that such a thing would be possible by 2028 when Internet satellites would orbit the Moon.
