Netflix said today it will expand into Canada this fall offering streamed movies and TV episodes to users there.
The launch is the first for Netflix outside of the United States, but it will not include the company’s DVD mailing service. Netflix says it’s the first time it has offered a streaming-only service.
Canadian Netflix members will be able to instantly watch a variety of movies and TV episodes on their TVs via a range of devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as watching on PCs and Macs. The company did not offer details about a specific launch date this fall or what its catalog will feature.
At the time of launch, the Netflix Canadian service will be available in English only, but the company said it expects to add French language capability over time.
Canadians interested in Netflix can go to www.netflix.ca and sign up to receive an email from the company when the service launches in Canada this fall.
