Netflix Launches Video Streaming Service in Brazil
Netflix launched a Portuguese-language streaming video service in Brazil, kicking off a 43-country rollout in Latin America and the Caribbean over the next week.
In Brazil, Netflix is offering thousands of hours of movies and TV shows, accessible over a broadband connection via computers, Sony PlayStations and Nintendo Wii consoles for a monthly subscription $14.99 (Brazilian). As it does in the U.S. and Canada, the company offers Brazilians a free, one-month trial of the service.
At the end of June, Netflix had 25.56 million subscribers 24.6 million in the U.S., 970,000 in Canada, up 70% from the year earlier.
