California-based entertainment subscription service Netflix has announced that it will offer movies and TV episodes for streaming to Canadian customers in the fall. For a monthly fee, Canadian Netflix members will be able to stream movies and TV episodes to view on TV or via computer. The service will only be available in English initially, but there are plans for a French-language version as well. This is the first international roll-out for Netflix. The company also made the news earlier this month with its announcement of a deal struck with Relativity Media that will see the service exclusively stream first-run films from Relativity during what’s ordinarily the pay TV window that follows a film’s theatrical release.
