Netflix Rumored To Expand Services To Spain/UK
Netflix is bound to hit some steep competition in the UK, where a company called Lovefilm already offers a rival service that has been nicely adopted. Netflix has refused to comment on the rumor, but that's no shock. According to the report, execs within film distributors in Europe have confirmed that the company will be making Europe their next target.
What's that mean in the grand scheme of things? Hard to say. And it's hard to say if the recent price increase had anything to do with it. We wouldn't be surprised if Netflix only offered streaming in Europe, and they continue to price their US offers in a way that'll encourage Americans to side with streaming and shun DVDs.
