Netflix Taking Streaming to Canada

Video rental and streaming service Netflix has announced the first availability of its streaming service outside the United States: later this year, the company plans to launch streaming service in Canada. The service will work in a manner very similar to the U.S. service: Netflix subscribers will be able to instantly-watch a range of movies and television shows on their TVs, PCs, and a range of other consumer electronics devices (like an iPad) for a single monthly fee.

Netflix did not provide any dates for the services’ availability, saying only that it will be available “this fall.” The launch will mark the first time Netflix streaming will be available outside the U.S.; initially the service will only be available in English, but Netflix says a French language version will be available “over time.”

Canadian Netflix subscribers can go to the Netflix Canada site and sign up to receive notification when the service becomes available.
