Netflix introducing video streaming service in Canada just in time for Apple TV debut

Netflix has made its very first foreign expansion by introducing their service of streaming video content into Canada. The service is now available and will cost you $7.99 per month.

This is great news for those of you in Canada as you will not be left out in the cold when Apple TV starts to ship (any day now). The company confirmed that not only will it support Apple TV but Apple's iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch will also be compatible with the streaming service in conjunction with the appropriate Netflix application.

If you live in Canada and were not going to make the Apple TV purchase, does this change your mind?

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Netflix introducing video streaming service in Canada just in time for Apple TV debut


The amount of available content on Netflix isn't quite there yet; too many titles show up as Not Available.
If I were going to go with Netflix (wife wants to stay with cable for now), I'd almost feel compelled to get an Apple TV so that the ITunes Store could supplement Netflix.

I pre-ordered my Apple TV this morning, right after signing up for Netflix. I am watching the 1st ep of the 3rd season of Avatar on my iPad as we speak.

Ordered AppleTV on day one.
Signed up with Netflix this morning and downloaded Netflix iPhone app. Streaming as we speak. Wish they had more titles though...

I don't really care about this as my ps3 also now has netflix streaming videos. Apple tv is pretty much useless IMO. I can download tv shows and stream them straight to my ps3..

Please help answer a question for me.
Am I able to save netflix content during the day while on my work wifi connection, and view that content at home later.
