Netflix Launches Unlimited Web-Based TV in Canada11:23 am on September 22, 2010 | Category: Television, Web Services
The popular internet-based movie subscription service, Netflix, is now available in Canada, bringing a new player to the country’s fast-changing media and entertainment market.
“With our launch today in Canada, Netflix is focused on adding meaningfully to the entertainment choices available to Canadian consumers,” commented Netflix CEO and co-founder, Reed Hastings.
Although the service won’t compete on equal footing with cable TV by offering new content, it will carry thousands of TV shows and movies, including a wide selection feature films. Unlimited access is available for $7.99 and new users are being offered a one-month free trial.
Programming can be streamed to a computer or compatible television set via a broadband internet connection, or downloaded onto a web-connected Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii gaming console.
