Netflix coming to the UK, Ireland next year

Netflix has finally confirmed its rumored plans to offer its streaming video service in the UK and Ireland. It's due to arrive in both territories early in 2012 for a set monthly price, like it does in North America, though details weren't revealed. The company said it will release price info, content partners, and supported devices closer to the launch date.

Whether DVD-by-mail services will be offered, like the original Netflix business scheme, remains to be seen. Netflix will bring added competition to similar UK services LoveFilm and Blinkbox.

Netflix launched in the US in 2007 and added Canada in 2010, along with 43 Latin American countries and the Caribbean this past September. Those in the UK and Ireland can sign up for launch details on the Netflix website.
