Netflix has already launched its service in Canada and is in the process of expanding to 43 countries in Latin America. It plans to soon expand into additional foreign markets.

CBS Corp, owner of the CBS broadcast network as well as Showtime, will make only a limited number of shows available through the deal. Those will include "Numb3rs," "Sleeper Cell," "The United States of Tara" and "Nurse Jackie," leaving out some of its biggest network hits.
