Netflix has launched their first international service. They are now offering streaming video services in the Canadian market.

The company said that they have licensing deals in place with some of the largest names in the media industry including Lionsgate, MGM Studios, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox, and Universal Pictures.

The service charges are around $7.99 a month which is slightly cheaper than what they charge in the US market.

Netflix streaming service is also available to customers in Canada on mobile devices like the Apple iPhone.
