Netflix expanding streaming service to Latin America


Netflix says it will expand its subscription streaming service to Latin America and the Caribbean later this year. The plan is to offer unlimited streaming of TV shows and movies in 43 new countries.

That will bring the total number of countries served to 45. Netflix has been streaming to US members since 2007 and added service to Canada in 2010.

Upon launch, Netflix subscribers in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean will be able to instantly watch a wide array of American, local and global TV shows and movies on TV screens via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as on PCs, Macs and mobile devices.

The Netflix service will be offered in Spanish, Portuguese, or English, depending on the subscriber’s preference.
