Netflix yesterday announced (http://blog.netflix.com/2012/01/netflix-launches-in-uk-ireland-today.html) its launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland, once again expanding the footprint of the company's popular streaming service.Netflix is available now, and anyone can get a one month free trial: click-to-watch TV programmes and films streamed instantly over the Internet to your smart TV, game console, computer, tablet, or mobile device. After the free trial, it costs just 5.99 or EUR6.99. Our catalog is full of complete TV programmes such as The Only Way is Essex, Prison Break, and Damages (watch from the pilot episode all the way through the last complete season) and great films such as 3:10 to Yuma, Blitz and The English Patient, with new content added continuously.With the launch, the company has made its services available across a number of different platforms, including the company's universal app (http://appshopper.com/entertainment/netflix) for iPhone and iPad that has gone live in both countries' App Stores. In addition, we're hearing that Netflix has appeared as an option on the Apple TV in the new markets, although some users have had difficulties getting it up and running.

I used the app earlier and watched an episode of The Inbetweeners with no lag and the quality was really good. I was on a 2MB wifi network at work.

I am updating my Apple TV as I type this, but I will test it on my Apple TV and 10MB Virgin broadband.

6 is an absolute bargain

- Should have better support for streaming to Apple devices
- If you want streaming-only, it's a lot cheaper
- Lovefilm's streaming video quality is awful.

I'm going to try it out for a month and then decide, but I expect I'll end up dumping Lovefilm.

I wasn't keen on that either. I clicked around and a small 'or sign up with email' link came up.

I therefore signed up by email (not Facebook) and even though the terms and conditions say that they want to put stuff on my Facebook wall, so far I haven't had to give them any Facebook access and it seems to work OK.

On the apple tv? It just appeared on mine after relaunching the apple tv.

I wonder how the streaming catalogue compares to the US one. In the US, for example, is it possible to stream James
Bond movies or "the hangover"? Can't find them in the UK.

There don't appear to be many very new releases, but I reckon they'll be added fairly quickly.

Yeah, firefox shows that - that probably makes Safari a non-prefered browser for netflix then.
Signed up for the 30 day, no harm in doing that I guess, especially on a creditcard that expires at the end of the month :)

It also requires Silverlight to playback on a mac.
On a 30mb/s link (Virgin Media), wired to desktop (mac mini)
Initial playback (Ghost in The Shell: Solid State Society), seemed a little glitchly, but I presume it's needing to workout the best solution.

I also installed the iOS app onto my iphone 3gs. Logged in, and checked out an episode of Doctor Who (Series 1, Dalek) - pity it does not go back to Tom Baker - works better on 3gs than desktop.

Going to give it the trial period, find things I've not seen before going the whole hog.

Does anyone know how this is on multiple computers?
Is it actually unlimited streaming?

Well, to be fair they want you to log in using Facebook - as they can then inject all the movie titles you watch into your timeline and get free advertising for themselves. If you read the terms and conditions, you actually agree to this - even if you sign up using email!

As far as I can see (as an email user) there's nothing so far that's forced me to unlock the Facebook functionality.

I looked at the first image and the first thing I did was to search for "Back to the Future" on the Netflix Canada website. Unfortunately that movie is not available to us.

Spaceballs is still not in the list. Iron Man 2 is listed but not the first one. Searching for "James Bond" only returned "Casino Royale", the other titles were not Bond movies at all.

I wonder how much Netflix is to blame, if it's a CRTC problem or the Canadian content providers who signed 25+ years contracts for some titles. :(

This is heavily geek/action-movie skewed, hopefully the populace at large is looking to watch movies that are a bit more spread out genre wise but unfortunately for Netflix those are the kind of people who are initially going to check out Netflix and they are going to be disappointed. Oh well...

But given how cheap it is, it may still be worth it.. If you can find 4 movies and 10 tv shows a month to watch, it already more than pays for itself. The convenience factor is great and it is worth a pound or two.

Those were just the first dozen or so 'popular' movies I thought of. I'd welcome any similar list you want to try that you think represents a more 'spread out genre'.

Personally, I was most interested in art house and foreign movies. There are a few good ones, but over those genres their selection is equally disappointing.

But given how cheap it is, it may still be worth it.. If you can find 4 movies and 10 tv shows a month to watch, it already more than pays for itself. The convenience factor is great and it is worth a pound or two.
Even less than that. I found some TV shows where I'd paid almost 2/episode on iTMS, so for those it's definitely good value.

There's enough stuff on there to make the service cost effective for me; but I don't think that should stop me from speaking out about how poor the selection is in the main. I was hoping to cancel my Lovefilm subscription in favour of Netflix. I'm not sure I can do that.

I guess it depends whether you look on it as 'is there enough on there to keep me entertained for a good while'? The answer is Yes, and the price is great.

If you're a film buff and you want to check out new movies, or you have specific movies you're hoping to watch - then not so much.

Watched a film on my Apple TV last night, and a couple of TV programmes. Worked great even with out lousy Irish country broadband.

Happy to pay 6.99 for it, much cheaper than renting movies from iTunes, or paying for a SkyMovies subscription.

Not complaining but what's the business benefit for Apple here. Possibly more Apple TV sales or do they get a cut of the Netflix subscription. I ask because for me to buy a tv series from Apple via the Apple TV would set me back 10 to 15 pounds but yet I can now stream the same series in HD from Netflix paying a low subscription and have the benefit of loads more content that also appears in Apples own catalogue.

Would it have not been more profitable for Apple to deliver a subscription service and do deals directly with the content owners. Allowing Netflix onto the Apple TV platform seems to eat into their potential future profits especially with the Apple TV set due to be released in the next year or so.

Yes it does on the Apple TV - I spotted this last night while trying random scamples of tv and films. I noticed that Blitz was in HD (though presumably only 720p). Quality was generally good with no stuttering or pauses on my 7 meg. broadband.

So far I am impressed with Netflix. The quality is way better than that of Lovefilm, which I have used for years for rental by post (way back since they were ScreenSelect) and more recently for streaming on PS3.

While I will still continue to rent blu-rays and games by post from Lovefilm, I will probably sign up for Netflix. The interface on bother the ATV and iPad are great and I like how the presentation of content is tailored to your tastes. If only Lovefilm had got on this earlier... Silly Simon Calver...

babyj
Jan 10, 2012, 09:22 AM
It seems to just be me but I found the interface a disappointment (especially on iPad and Apple TV), very poor in comparison to the UK catch up apps (on iPad). Not so bothered about the content especially as I'm sure it will improve over the coming months.

But I love the convenience of being able to watch on my Apple TV so I think I'll be sticking with it after the trial, would be different if the catch up services were available on it though.

Quite a lot of the content I've seen has Subtitles. They work on the different platforms as well which is cool.

If you're somewhere that Netflix offers service you might as well try the Free Trial.
