It’s single-fee-per-month streaming service has gained the company considerable popularity around the world, including countries where it isn’t officially available yet.
However, it looks like Netflix is ready to tick off another western European country from its ‘must get to’ list with news that the service will arrive in the Netherlands some time this year.
According to the company, it currently has 36million subscribers across 40 countries and streams more than one billion hours per month.
At this stage, Netflix has not given a specific timeline or price for the service’s arrival, other than to say it will be launching ‘later this year’ and ‘late 2013′.
Netflix is available through most platforms, including Android, helping to make it so popular with low-cost mini PCs. Through a combination of Wi-Fi and either HDMI or MHL (Mobile High-definition Link), smartphone, tablet and mini PC users can stream content direct to their big-screen TV. Netflix has three different quality options, which you can set after you join, to cater for your internet bandwidth and device speed.
