Netflix streaming comes to Latin America and the Caribbean

On Monday Netflix began offering their Watch Instantly streaming service in Brazil.
It is part of a bigger plan to roll out the service in Latin America and the Caribbean.

By September 12 Netflix streaming will have been introduced in more than 40 additional countries, including Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela & Mexico. The new markets also mean adding interfaces in Spanish and Portuguese.

Interestingly, Netflix's announcement suggests the price in some countries will be set in US, rather than local, currency. In Uraguay and Paraguay, for example, the price will be the same price ($7.99) charged in the US.

Netflix CEO and co-founder Reed Hastings said:

We are excited to be bringing Netflix to Latin America and the Caribbean. People throughout the region are online in ever-greater numbers and they love movies and TV shows. We are proud to bring them the Netflix experience of instantly enjoying as many movies and TV shows as they want, when they want for one low price.
