Netflix today officially launched [Google Translate] its subscription movie and TV show service in Germany, and as noted by ifun.de [Google Translate], the launch includes day-one support on the Apple TV.
Apple has significantly expanded content offerings on the Apple TV over the past year or two, but many of the additions have been limited to the United States. The Netflix channel has, however, been available in many of the markets served by Netflix, which has included the U.S., Latin America, and a number of countries in Europe. As a result, it is unsurprising that the channel has expanded to Germany, but viewers there will be happy to see Apple TV support arriving right alongside the general launch of Netflix in the country.

Pretty sure Netflix will make more money expanding vs. adding more movies. It's called business. Do you really think they aren't trying to do both?
How dares an American company try to take money from foreigners.
I haven't tried, but that's usually the way it works on TV Streaming devices.
I admit this isn't practical for many European users.
Say you want to watch an original US series in English, and then a German film in German instead of dubbed in English... you need to go back to the main Apple TV menu and change the language again.
The whole system is thought out for people who only understand one language...somebody needs to tell our US friends that even *their* brains can handle more ;-)
Yeah, they have both languages. Thats why I was waiting for netflix for so long... However I guess they only got a 2TB server for Germany, since the the available content is pretty limited.
