Within ten months of launching its service in Canada, Netflix has surpassed one million members. The milestone was achieved in July, when Amanda Bell James, from Flin Flon, Manitoba joined Netflix and won a lifetime membership to the world’s leading Internet subscription service for enjoying movies and TV shows.
“We’re thrilled that Canadians have embraced Netflix so rapidly, and we’re equally proud to have welcomed one million members in such a short period,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO and co-founder. “Our focus remains on building up the breadth and range of movies and TV shows to watch instantly, as well as constantly improving the experience, and we look forward to welcoming many more new members.”
“I’m excited to be the millionth Canadian member,” said Amanda Bell James. “Netflix is something I enjoy with my family and I look forward to continue watching our favorite movies and TV shows via Netflix in the future.”
Having an extensive library of thousands of movies and TV episodes ensures that Netflix members have a wide range of choices to watch instantly.
For $7.99 a month, Canadians can instantly watch unlimited movies & TV episodes streaming from Netflix, whenever and as often they want.
Members can instantly watch movies and TV shows from Netflix via the Internet on a number of devices from computers to game consoles to smart phones and Internet connected televisions. The experience allows members to pause, fast forward and rewind their selection on any of their devices. Movies and TV shows are shown without ads or trailers.
Netflix launched in Canada in September 2010, and the company surpassed its own expectations for growth when it crossed the 1 millionth member mark in 10 months.
