Netflix is now offering streaming video services in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, just as the company promised back in August. The Nordic rollout of the Netflix makes the service available to ten million broadband households, at about the same cost US customers pay. Netflix subscriptions in those countries are priced at 79kr a month in Sweden, Denmark and Norway, and EUR7.99 in Finland. As in the US, customers are offered a free month trial of the service. However, Netflix says they are also offering an extended trial for paying Spotify members as part of a partnership agreement.
“Initial signups exceeded our expectations; the Nordic people have definitely shown that they are ready for the future of television,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix co-founder and chief executive officer.
As well as international films and titles from major studios such as Warner Bros., CBS, and Sony Pictures, customers in the Nordic are also able to view local titles such as:
- Danish movies such as Submarino, Flammen & Citronen, Pusher Trilogy and prizewinning Festen, previous full seasons of Danish favourites including Klovn.
- Finnish titles including Iron Sky and Kolme assaa
- Norwegian favourites including Lilyhammer, Julenatt I Blafjell and Tomme tonner.
- Swedish movies such as Flickan, I taket lyser stjarnorna and Maria Larssons eviga ogonblick as well as previous full seasons of Swedish TV favorites including Bron and 30 grader i februari
