Netflix coming to major mystery device

updated 12:00 pm EDT, Fri October 23, 2009

Netflix going international, to a new device?

During a Thursday third quarter earnings report, Netflix has revealed increased revenues thanks to a 22 percent increase of streaming video use, and this from a smaller subscriber base. At the same time, CEO Reed Hastings revealed Netflix will become available for streaming on another electronics device, though he did not offer any other specifics. Hastings did indicate game consoles are also key to the expansion of the service, which could spell an end to the exclusivity of Netflix on Microsoft's Xbox 360.

Publicly, Microsoft has claimed an Xbox exclusive for Netflix, but neither of the two has said how long their deal will stay in place.

International plans were also confirmed during the call. The expansion will only involve a streaming service only rather than the DVD mailing service. The move will start in 2010, though the choice of markets hasn't been revealed. [via NewTeeVee]
