Netflix Launching in Canada This Fall

At least we know it's logistically possible for a Wii appearance

Those in the U.S. have already been enjoying Netflix via the Wii for a few months now, and it looks like their neighbours to the north could soon be doing the same when the service makes its first international appearance this fall.

Although it hasn't been officially announced that the film and TV streaming service will have its own dedicated outlet on the Wii when it arrives in Canada, a representative told Joystiq that Instant on popular devices is being looked at:

We're not announcing the Netflix ready devices until the service launches, but it's fair to assume that several popular, brand name devices will be capable of streaming from Netflix to TVs at launch – in addition to the ability to watch instantly on computers -- and that we'll add to the family of devices over time.

We'll bring you more info on the launch if it does indeed make it to Canadian Wii consoles, but in the meantime, why not head over to the Canadian Netflix web site and sign up for news leading up to its launch? You can also check out our hands-on impressions of the service on Wii if you haven't already.
