Netflix Arrives to Europe in 2012

The movies and TV streaming rental service from Netflix will finally cross the Atlantic and settle in Europe. More specifically in the UK and Ireland.

The two countries are the first in the European continent to receive the subscription service that lets you watch movies and series in various consumer devices equipped with internet connection: televisions, computers (PC and Mac), tablets, smartphones, game consoles and Blu-Ray

The announcement was made on Monday by the company in a online statement, where there is no reference to extend to other European countries the service that for now is only available in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

According to Netflix, the unlimited access to movies and television series, in exchange for paying a “low cost” monthly subscription will be available already from the beginning of 2012.

For now, prices, content or devices the supply in these two countries have not been advanced, being promised to announce more information on a date closer to the launch of the service.

In the U.S., where it costs $7.99 per month, Netflix’s offer is supported by about 700 devices, among which are many models of televisions and Blu-ray with an Internet connection, the home entertainment consoles like Microsoft (Xbox 360), Nintendo (Wii) and Sony (PS3) and equipment such as iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Google TV.
