Netflix Expanding Movie Streaming Service to Latin America

netflix Instant WatchLater this year Netflix will expand its popular movie streaming service to 43 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Via a post on its official blog site, the DVD-by-mail and movie streaming company announced that the offering will give people in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean access to movies on Netflix.com in Spanish, Portuguese or English. Members in these countries will be able to stream movies to a wide range of consumer electronics devices as well as PCs, Macs and mobile devices.

Last year, Netflix began offering its Instant Watch service to Canada with a limited catalog of titles available for digital streaming, but that number of titles has continued to grow. Also, current members of the DVD-by-mail portion of the service in Puerto Rico recently began reporting that access to the same catalog of streaming titles in the U.S. is now available.

No dates have been announced for when the company plans to begin the expansion in the region, but the blog post requests that residents of Latin American countries go to Netflix.com and and leave info to receive an email reminder when the service launches.

A sizable legion of Netflix members have, as of late, been in an uproar brought about by a significant update to the company's website which is getting closer to resembling an "in-store" experience of browsing large movie boxes and not much else. With the recent announcement of the expansion into Spanish-speaking countries, the decision to reduce the amount of text on the site is making more sense. People of all languages can recognize movies by the cover art.
