Netflix NFLX spokesman Steve Swasey confirms that the Canada move will be the extent of the company’s international forays this year. Still, it’s expansion, right? It’s also worth noting that Canadian customers will only be able to subscribe to the Web offering, but still won’t be able to get Netflix DVDs via the email. It’s the first time that Netflix has offered a streaming-only service. Netflix’ release doesn’t have many other specifics, like price, the size of the catalog that the company will offer, or the exact date it will be available.
Apparently the service won’t be of any use to American subscribers who visit their neighbors up north. Blame licensing restrictions, per usual.
