Netflix made its popular content streaming service available in the United Kingdom and Ireland yesterday. Previously exclusive to the US, Canada and various parts of Latin America, our friends across the pond can now enjoy movies and TV shows streamed to their TV or internet connected device.
This launch also brings with it the Netflix Android application, so any Netflix users will also be able to stream movies and TV shows straight to their Android smartphones and tablets. The Netflix app is the same one enjoyed elsewhere around the world and includes recent UI improvements Netflix has made to the application.
If you live in the UK or Ireland and haven’t yet signed up for Netflix, be sure to head over to the Global Signup page to get your account started. Accounts start at £5.99 or €6.99, and usually Netflix offers a 14 or 30 day free trial. If you have signed up for the service, you’ll certainly want to head over to the Android Market and download the Netflix application. Let us know how you’re enjoying the Netflix service and application by leaving a comment below.
