Netflix comes to UK PS3

Not live yet, but hopefully we'll see the platform in action this month

Netflix hit stormy waters at the end of last year.

We reported in October that the service shed 800,000 subscribers, a huge amount to lose, although the company expects those viewer numbers to stabilise.

Particularly as new recruits are expected to be coming on board with the UK and Ireland launch of the streaming service, which is expected to happen early in 2012, hopefully this month.

And in fact it would seem that Netflix is already going live on PS3s across the country, with the app appearing ready for download.

However, the catch is it isn’t yet fully functional. The app only offers the chance to sign up for a notification of when the service goes live.

We take its presence to be a reasonably strong sign that we will see Netflix in the UK this month, fingers crossed.

The streaming platform will also be rolled out on the Xbox, PC and Mac, plus iOS and Android tablets and phones.

Netflix offers a large library of thousands of movies and TV shows, including the likes of Shameless, Breaking Bad, South Park, the Mighty Boosh, Torchwood and Firefly.

The platform hit subscriber trouble in the States after upping its charges last year. International expansion plans have been halted beyond the UK for now.
