Netflix app for Windows Phone comes to UK and Ireland

Originally developed back in November 2010, the Windows Phone version of Netflix has been made available internationally. In the list of included countries we can finally find Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Netflix has been available for U.S. and Canadian inhabitants on handsets running on Microsoft's OS since 2010, but it took the service a year and a half to extend its support overseas.

Using this app, users can watch a wide range of TV shows and movies. Netflix allows the application to manually select audio tracks or subtitles for videos.

Although the application has only been available on the Windows Phone Marketplace for a couple of days, the Netflix service itself has been available in the UK and Ireland since January this year.

Also yesterday, Netflix updated the Xbox 360 (opens in new tab) version of the client with new features like complete Facebook integration, which allows sharing video content with friends over the cloud, automatic sign-up with Xbox Live on multiple consoles, a zoom function that lets users view shows in full-screen mode and even a Forward/Backwards skip option.
