The US online video rental service Netflix is to launch in the UK and Ireland in early 2012.
Netflix confirmed its first move into Europe on Monday, six years after shelving previous plans to launch in the UK.
British and Irish film fans will be able to subscribe to Netflix for a monthly fee â€“ probably about Â£5 a month â€“ to rent an unlimited number of TV shows and movies to stream online. The company did not reveal exact pricing for subscribers. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/oct/24/netflix-uk-launch-201 etc ...
This is great news. Basically you can stream TV shows and movies on your PC or console - all of them support it - even the 3DS will have Netflix soon.
I wonder if they will have local content from ITV / RTE? If so, it may be time to finally cancel Sky / UPC.
