Netflix yesterday announced its launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland, once again expanding the footprint of the company's popular streaming service.
Netflix is available now, and anyone can get a one month free trial: click-to-watch TV programmes and films streamed instantly over the Internet to your smart TV, game console, computer, tablet, or mobile device. After the free trial, it costs just £5.99 or €6.99. Our catalog is full of complete TV programmes such as The Only Way is Essex, Prison Break, and Damages (watch from the pilot episode all the way through the last complete season) and great films such as 3:10 to Yuma, Blitz and The English Patient, with new content added continuously.
With the launch, the company has made its services available across a number of different platforms, including the company's universal app for iPhone and iPad that has gone live in both countries' App Stores. In addition, we're hearing that Netflix has appeared as an option on the Apple TV in the new markets, although some users have had difficulties getting it up and running.

It's working on mine! :D
I finally managed to sign up and it's working great on the iPad.
Netfix is now showing up on the menu of the Apple TV but gives an error message when you try to open it. Must be patient. :D
- Should have better support for streaming to Apple devices
- If you want streaming-only, it's a lot cheaper
- Lovefilm's streaming video quality is awful.
I'm going to try it out for a month and then decide, but I expect I'll end up dumping Lovefilm.
Why not get you product sorted before releasing it in the UK? Not a half arsed effort of mediocre shows. :rolleyes:
