Dutch users can now benefit from a wider choice of streaming services, following the announcement that Netflix has launched commercially in the Netherlands. Telecompaper reports that Dutch subscribers will pay EUR7.99 (USD10.59) per month to obtain ‘unlimited’ access to Netflix’s library of movies and TV programmes via its online streaming service.
