Cheap thrills: Netflix coming to Canada

Cheap thrills: Netflix coming to Canada

Netflix, the California-based movie subscription company that all the Yanks keep yapping about, announced yesterday that it’s coming to Canada in the fall. The press release says that Canadian members will be able to stream movies and TV episodes on their televisions and computers, though it doesn’t mention the rental-by-mail service that the company is also famous for.

No word on how much the subscription fee will cost, but in the States, users fork over about $9 for the service each month—cheap, considering that new releases from Rogers on Demand can cost $6 each. Here’s hoping Hulu will be the next streaming company to realize the awesomeness of Canadian markets.
