Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX), the leading Internet movie subscription service, today launched in Canada with an offering that allows Canadians to instantly watch unlimited movies and TV episodes streamed from Netflix to TVs and computers for only $7.99 a month.  The Canadian introduction marks the first availability of the Netflix service outside the United States.

Canadian Netflix members can choose from thousands of movies and TV episodes, including feature films, popular TV series, independent cinema, documentaries, foreign language movies, and kids’ programming.  Choices are instantly streamed to TVs and computers via a broadband Internet connection and members can watch as much as they want, whenever they want.

A number of consumer electronics devices available in Canada are capable of streaming instantly from Netflix right to TVs.  Nintendo’s Wii home console and Sony’s PlayStation®3 (PS3™) system can stream from Netflix now, and later this fall Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is set to join the Netflix streaming ranks here.  The installed base of the three leading consoles in Canada is approximately six million units.

In addition, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can now stream from Netflix in Canada, as can Blu-ray disc players from Samsung and Toshiba.  Movies and TV shows streamed from Netflix can also be watched instantly on PCs and Macs.  Over time, more devices capable of streaming from Netflix are expected to be added in Canada, including Blu-ray disc players from VIZIO and Insignia (the latter available exclusively at Best Buy and Futureshop), Internet TVs from Samsung and the recently retuned Apple TV when it is introduced here.

As part of today’s launch, Netflix announced Canadian license agreements with major motion picture studios such as Lionsgate, MGM Studios, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures, as well as leading Canadian distributors Alliance Films, Maple Pictures, eOne and Mongrel.

Content available to Canadian Netflix members includes:

  • Popular feature films like “Superbad,” “The Pursuit of Happyness,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Notebook,” “Elizabeth” and “Slumdog Millionaire.”
  • First-run feature films from Twentieth Century Fox, including “(500) Days of Summer,” “My Life in Ruins,” “All About Steve” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox” concurrent with their release on linear pay TV in Canada.
  • In-cycle programming including the new romantic comedy “Running Wilde,” starring Will Arnett and Keri Russell.  In Canada, “Running Wilde” will stream from Netflix on the same day as the show airs on network television in the U.S.
  • The first five seasons of the Canadian Showcase Network’s hit “mockumentary” series “Trailer Park Boys,” director Mike Clattenburg’s creation about the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
  • Prior season episodes of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning TV series “Mad Men” (the stylish drama about ad agency life on New York’s Madison Ave in the 1960s) and the hit dramas “Leverage” (starring Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton), “Rescue Me” (Denis Leary’s series about New York City firefighters) and “Monk” (starring Emmy® Award and Golden Globe® Award winner Tony Shalhoub in the title role).
  • Popular shows from the Discovery Channel (“MythBusters”), Nickelodeon (“SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Dora the Explorer”), Canada’s Nelvana Studio (animated episodes of “Babar” and “Franklin”) and the BBC (“Robin Hood” and “Fawlty Towers”).

As previously announced, the Netflix Canadian service will initially be available in English only, but the company said it expects to add French language capability over time.Canadians can sign up for a free one-month trial. After that, users have access to unlimited streaming for $7.99 per month.Only the streaming service, not the mail delivery rentals, will be available to Canadian users.

    Every day, more
    and more people want to protect their privacy on the Internet. Governments
    around the world are different types of restrictions on Internet connections
    of their citizens. VPN is the solution for all that allows you to bypass all
    restrictions and protect your privacy. Many experts predict that VPN is the
    future of Internet freedom. I use http://www.sunvpn.net/ to open blocked
    sites. Its very easy to handle and is useful in various purposes.
