Netflix might launch in Europe after rumors of Netflix’s plans to launch in Europe were reported last week in the news. This is not the first time Netflix was trying to have a European launch. Unfortunately, they have yet to materialize, as will probably be the case with this latest round of info from Variety of all places. Apparently Netflix is totally serious this time about bringing its service across the Atlantic, with the UK and Spain being the primary targets.
The news is pegged as coming from European film distributors and also places the starting point somewhere near Q2 2012. ”We’ve also decided to make some early content commitments for a third international market given our high probability of success in our second international market,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said back in April.
Hopefully Netflix won’t be as moody with its prices as it has recently been here in the US.
