At 1,000,000 customers and presumably more to come when there is a French version it will get more difficult for the CRTC to be pressured into regulating them. A million voters writing to the Government carries some weight I suspect especially on stuff that the Gov doesn't care much about anyway.

We will see.

Netflix is now available in 43 Latin American countries but expects to lose money there for a while.

Hastings said at the news conference that it would probably take two years for the company to reach profitability in Mexico. "We are going to lose money for a while," he said, according to Reuters. "It will take a lot of subscribers to get to profitability."

The company is charging $7.99 in Latin America, the same price it charges for Internet streaming in the U.S., or the local currency equivalent. It's not offering DVDs by mail, an option available only to Americans.

Netflix launched in its first foreign market, Canada, in September 2010. Since then, the company has grown fast enough in that country that the company said its Canadian operation could break even or earn a small profit in the quarter that ends Sept. 30.
