Canadian video-on-demand services will face a challenge from a California-based company later this year.
Netflix Inc. says it's expanding into Canada with an Internet subscription service that will deliver movies and TV episodes to televisions and computers for a monthly fee.
Similar Internet online programming services are being rolled out by several Canadian companies, particularly Quebecor's Videotron and Rogers Communications.
Netflix says Canada will be the inaugural international market for its Internet subscription service.
The company didn't announce how much it will charge for the service.
