(19-Jul-10) U.S. online video giant Netflix, Inc., is launching a subscription service in Canada to stream movies and TV episodes over the internet to customers' TVs and computers.
Canadian customers will pay a monthly fee to get unlimited video-on-demand starting this fall, Netflix announced Monday. The Los Gatos, Calif.-based company did not specify what that fee will be, but it currently charges $8.99 a month in the U.S.
Initially, the Canadian service will be available in English only, but the company plans to add French language capability "over time."
In order to stream videos to their TVs, customers will have to use intermediary devices such as current generation video game consoles, certain Blu-ray disc players, internet TVs, digital video players or Apple's iPad.Click here for full article
