Netflix is an American video rental service, established in 1997. Since its inception, it has evolved to mainly focus on Internet streaming, although it also provides rental via US mail.
In March 2011, Netflix announced their plans to begin acquiring original, first-run programming, in order to make it available through their online subscription service.
On February 6, 2012, Norwegian series Lilyhammer, starring American actor Steven Van Zandt, made its North American premiere through Netflix.
