The Netflix site is now online and waiting for you to sign up for a 1 month free trial. As reported yesterday, the price (beyond the free trial) is £5.99 per month.
I've had no luck so far finding the related apps on my WDTV Live Player, or my Sammy TV, but I've signed up on my laptop and the content range isn't bad, especially for TV shows, for example, Seasons 1 to 4 for Prison Break and the first 4 days of 24 are available to watch.

Lovefilm and Netflix continue to prepare for the forthcoming UK Streaming War:
- Lovefilm's latest deals (both non-exclusive) will bring content from ITV and BBC Worldwide.
- An Netflix app has appeared for Sony PlayStation 3. It doesn't do much.....yet.
- Netflix's advert campaign is reported as starting this week, with deals expected to be completed with Sony, Disney, Paramount, Channel 4 and ITV.
- Looks like its £5.99 per month for unlimited streaming from Netflix. Lovefilm's streaming package is currently £4.99 but that's a special offer according to their website.
