DetailsJoseph O'Halloran | 12 January 2015

Only days after swooping for the video assets of blinkbox, UK ISP TalkTalk has begun offering the Netflix subscription (SVOD) service.

Netflix is available immediately to customers with TalkTalk's YouView set top box, and comes just over two months since a similar capability was offered by BT to its YouView estate.

YouView from TalkTalk homes that pre-registered for Netflix will be amongst the first to receive the service on their set top box. The roll out will continue until the end of the month, with all 1.2 million of the IPTV provider's homes having access to Netflix by the end of January 2015.

Tristia Harrison"Netflix is a brilliant new addition to TalkTalk TV. As Britain's fastest growing TV service, we are on a mission to provide the best movies and hit TV shows that our customers can dip in and out of, all at a great price. Netflix complements this perfectly," commented TalkTalk's managing director (consumer)Tristia Harrison. "The fact that TalkTalk homes can enjoy such a huge range of must-see content, on their TV as well as on other devices is an exciting step forward. We can't wait for them to dive into the movies and series everyone's talking about," Harrison continued.

Added Bill Holmes, global head of business development, Netflix: "By partnering with TalkTalk we're making it even easier for many TV fans and movie lovers in Britain to watch Netflix on their television screens".
