Netflix UK hits one million subscribers
Netflix has reached the one million subscriber milestone in the UK and Ireland.

Netfix launched in the UK and Ireland at the start of the year, offering an unlimited film service for £5.99.
"This membership milestone is evidence that Netflix has rapidly gained popularity in the UK and Ireland," said Netflix chief executive officer Reed Hastings.

The company plans to launch in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland by the end of 2012.
