Let's hope they do it right this time!
Back in October, we first heard about Netflix's plans to expand and offer services in Ireland and the U.K.
Now, the company has officially launched their service overseas! Here are some highlights from the press release:
"Netflix, Inc., the leading global internet subscription service for films and TV programmes, launches today in the United Kingdom and Ireland , offering instant and unlimited access to a broad range of entertainment for the low monthly price of 5.99 Pounds Sterling in the UK and euro 6.99 in Ireland."
"'We are starting 2012 in the best possible way: by giving consumers in the UK and Ireland an amazing entertainment experience,' said Reed Hastings, co-founder and chief executive officer of Netflix. 'Now, you can enjoy as many great films and TV programmes as you want, when you want, where you want, for one low monthly price with no contracts or commitments.'"
"At launch, Netflix is offering films and TV programmes from All3Media, the BBC, CBS, Channel 4's 4oD, Disney UK & Ireland, ITV, Lionsgate UK, MGM, Miramax, Momentum Pictures, NBCUniversal, Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Viacom International Media Networks."
Do U think Netflix will be successful in the UK? How about in Ireland? Both? Neither???
