    Variety is reporting that Netflix is planning to expand its streaming service into the UK and Spain during Q1 2012. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said back in the spring the firm had plans for a “third wave of international expansion” during early 2012. If the report is accurate, it’s a possibility the service will finally be made available on consoles in both countries.

    Thanks, VentureBeat.[/p]

    Could prove good, especially if it rivals LOVEFiLM with prices and causes a price drop in both subscriptions, even though I don't use any of these services!

    Finally! I can't wait, this promises to be better than Lovefilm (which is what I currently use) as it uses the internet which means no more posting and hopefully better value for money if, like me, you keep forgetting to watch the films.

    Not really if you think about it. About 6 months time.

    You could be looking at upwards of waiting 8 months, and that's if it all goes on schedule. Still though, when you consider, that isn't too long to wait.
