You may have been enjoying Netflix's streaming video service for a few years, but not everyone the world over is so lucky. Netflix announced earlier this year (and clarified in July) that it was going to expand the service into Europe this month, and it's starting with France.
Content availability varies by market, but French subscribers will get selections like Downton Abbey, Fargo, Orange Is the New Black, and The Dark Knight. Netflix is expected to deploy service in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, and Luxembourg soon, provided its previously stated timeline holds up. Pricing looks to be set at €7.99 for the French rollout. Other markets in the new Europe expansion will probably be the same.
This isn't the first time Netflix has ventured into Europe. Netflix already streams to other European countries like Norway, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
