Netflix Eyes First EU Launch
Fret not my UK and Ireland friends. You too will have this awesome service soon.
To be fair, the only indication we have is sometime ‘early next year’…which could mean anywhere from first quarter to mid way through second. However, it has been confirmed that the first two countries to get a chance to take a shit on LoveFilm will be the United Kingdom and Ireland, but I said that already.
From Netflix about how you’ll be able to interact with the service (which funny enough is no different than here in the US):
“[you’ll be able to access it] via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as on PCs, Macs and mobile tablets and phones.”
This pretty much means that you’ll get the standard service through PC, mobile, tablet, and all the gaming consoles I bet.
With all of the problems they’ve faced in America over the price hike and the Quikster bullshit, they need all the positive press they can get.
