Netflix May Expand Services to Europe

Posted Jul 17, 2011

Perhaps encouraged by the flurry of excitement caused by Spotify’s turn stateside, Netflix may be heading to Europe next year. Mashable reports that expanding into the European market could help Netflix keep prices down, speculating that the service would likely only cover the instant streaming options. This would explain Netflix’s decision to separate the payment for DVDs and Instant. Variety says the 2012 expansion will begin with Spain and the UK.
