Netflix announced today that they will be expanding their online streaming movie and TV service to Canada.
The company confirmed it will only be expanding to Canada, but it's an expansion nevertheless. However, Canadian customers will be limited to only some of the services that Netflix currently offers. Netflix said they will only offer Canadian customers streaming web content and will not offer mail delivery DVD or Blu-Ray discs. This is the first time the company has offered streaming-only content.
Netflix is currently offered on a wide variety of devices in the United States, including set-top boxes, supported HDTVs, Xbox 360, Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii, Blu-Ray players and many more. Netflix is also available on handheld devices like the iPhone and iPad. Netflix offers over 100,000 titles in the U. S., offering home Internet streaming to your PC or Mac, including DVD and Blu-Ray rentals that delivered right to your door step in the mail.
Netflix said it will offer unlimited movies and TV episodes over the Internet, but did not mention any details like pricing, launch date or even if the entire catalogue will be available at launch.
