Netflix will make its international debut this fall when the rapidly growing movie subscription service offers video over the Internet in Canada.
The expansion announced Monday resolves the mystery of where Netflix will take its first step outside the United States. The company had laid out its plans to move beyond the U.S. borders earlier this year without identifying a target market.
Netflix Inc. didn't say how much the Canadian service will cost. Its charges $9 to $17 per month for its most popular packages in the U.S.
This will mark the first time that Netflix has offered a service confined to delivering video over high-speed Internet connections. All its U.S. subscription packages combine Internet streaming with DVDs delivered through the mail.
