Netflix will expand its services to the UK and Ireland next year.
Netflix had begun to expand its streaming service, first to Canada in 2010, and then to forty-three countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in September of this year.
“Upon launch, Netflix members from the UK and Ireland will be able to instantly watch a wide array of TV shows and movies right on their TVs via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as on PCs, Macs and mobile tablets and phones,” said a Netflix press release.
While it has not yet been announced which shows would be available for streaming in the UK and Ireland, Netflix currently offers all of the televised Star Trek series plus Star Trek XI for U.S. customers of its streaming services.
The UK/Ireland Netflix will launch in “early 2012.” Closer to the launch, details about pricing, content and supported devices will be announced.
