Netflix is Coming to UK in 2012
While Netflix aims to be globally available, UK is not part of the list where the company will launch it services.
Film and television industry authority, Variety, reports that Netflix will arrive in UK next year: “Sources at leading European film distributors say as recently as last week Netflix reps confirmed plans to put roots down in both Spain and the United Kingdom in the first quarter of next year.”
But while the news seems unsurprising, Netflix omitted UK in its recent list of Latin American and Caribbean countries set for its global launch. However, the company declined tofurther comment on this.

But once Netflix UK becomes available, it will find itself in enviable position of having customers who already have compatible platforms. This can mean big competition with other streaming service providers like Amazon’s LoveFilm.View Article Source »
