Netflix Comes to Canada Instantly

By  · Published on July 19th, 2010

There’s not much that warms our cold, cold hearts here at FSR, but whenever we get emails from our friends abroad who can’t watch trailers or rent movies we lovingly suggest, a little piece of us dies because sharing a love of film is what it’s all about.

Fortunately, you can sound your victory trumpets because sharing that love just got easier, and it’s now ribbed for your pleasure.

Movie rental overlords at Netflix have decided to conquer Canada after laying siege to Blockbuster. While the company won’t offer rentals by-mail (because it costs and arm and a loony to mail things up there), they will be offering the far superior Watch Instantly option which will continue to expand (and will probably be the only service offered in a few year’s time).

Huzzah! Congratulations, Canada. Welcome to Never Going To Your Job Again.
