Netflix coming to Japan this fall in service's Asia debut

The Associated Press

LOS GATOS, Calif. (AP) Netflix is expanding into Japan this fall, marking the first time that the Internet video service will be available in Asia.

The move announced late Wednesday marks another step toward reaching Netflix's goal to stream video on Internet-connected TVs, phones, tablets and computer throughout the world.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings last month pledged to complete the company's international push by the end of next year.

The service already sells video subscriptions to a mix of original programming, movies and TV series in more than 50 countries. New Zealand and Australia are scheduled to join that list next month.

Netflix will open an office in Tokyo as part of its entry into Japan. The Los Gatos, California, company didn't specify what date in autumn that the Japanese service will debut.
