Neflix UK Launch: Apple TV’s Offering Finally Gains Some Luster
Netflix is finally available in the UK. Netflix

The popular Netflix film and TV streaming service has finally arrived in the UK, launching Monday onto a host of devices including the Xbox 360, PS3, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

While already available in the U.S. for some time, the streaming service only arrived in the UK Monday. Consumers with compatible devices will be able to sign-up for a Netflix account for £5.99-a-month.

The account will grant users "unlimited" access to the Netflix media library, which currently contains content from All3Media, the BBC, CBS, Channel 4, Disney UK & Ireland, ITV, Lionsgate UK, MGM, Miramax, Momentum Pictures, NBCUniversal, Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Viacom International Media Networks.

As well as streaming movies, Netflix can also be set-up to integrate with Facebook accounts, letting users post what they are watching directly to their Timeline.

The service is currently available on a number of devices being listed as running on Windows PCs, the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii games consoles, HDTVs, Smart TV adaptors, Philips' HD Media Player, the WD TV Live streaming media player, Roku and Android and iOS-powered phones and tablets.

Out of the list, the service's presence on the Apple TV has garnered interest by analysts, many of whom have suggested Netflix's arrival may finally spark consumer interest in Apple's near year-old product.

Apple TV is a peripheral that plugs into the TV allowing users access to content from a number of providers. The unit came under criticism in Britain with consumers unhappy with the poor choice of content - the fact that Netflix while available in the U.S. Apple TV wasn't on the UK model being a particular sticking point.

Check back at the International Business Times UK later in January for a full look at the new service.
