Too soon to get excited, but...

Good morning everyone,

Did you enjoy the rain yesterday? maybe nobody really 'enjoyed' it, did they? Ha ha! But the good news is that we aren't really expected to get any more rain this week. Today and tomorrow will be nice with mostly sunny skies and highs around 10C. Sunday will be overcast with a high of 9C and then it's back to the mostly blue skies from Monday and the thermometer will stick around 10C all week. Not too shabby for the middle of winter...

I don't want to get too excited yet, but Netflix is coming to Japan! Have you heard of Netflix?

Netflix is the world’'s leading Internet television network with over 57 million members in nearly 50 countries enjoying more than two billion hours of TV shows and movies per month, including original series, documentaries, and feature films. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause, and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.

Netflix members with a broadband connection can watch whenever, wherever they like, and on any Netflix-ready device they choose. Members can start watching on one device, pause, and then pick up where they left off on another, at home or on the go.

Netflix will be available at launch on smart TVs, tablets and smartphones, computers and a range of Internet-capable game consoles. Additional details on pricing, programming and supported devices will be available at a later date. Consumers can sign up to be alerted when Netflix is available on

That is the PR blurb from Netflix about their pending expansion into Japan. It's the last line that is making me hold back on getting too excited. It is really going to depend on what programs they offer and how much the monthly fee is. In Canada, there are tons of unhappy customers because they can't get a lot of the big Hollywood movies and tv shows, yet they pay the same monthly fee as Americans-it's pretty reasonable though, about $9 a month.

If I can get a lot of shows from back home and if the price is reasonable, I might be one of the many cable subscribers jumping ship and signing up for Netflix...

How about you? Does the idea of watching whatever you want, whenever you want sound like fun?

Have a great day!
