Netflix nets its one millionth member in Canada

Movie subscription service Netflix has been in Canada for less than a year, and already, more than 1 million members have signed up.

To celebrate the occasion, Netflix awarded the country's one-millionth member, Amanda James, with a lifetime membership.

"I'm excited to be the millionth Canadian member," said James, who's originally from Manitoba. "Netflix is something I enjoy with my family and I look forward to continue watching our favorite movies and TV shows via Netflix in the future."

Reed Hastings, CEO and co-founder of the company, said he couldn't be happier that his subscription-based movie service has taken off the way it has.

"We're thrilled that Canadians have embraced Netflix so rapidly," said Hastings. "Our focus remains on building up the breadth and range of movies and TV shows to watch instantly."

Because movie subscription services have become so popular, homeowners may be wondering what to do with the movies they own. Portable storage containers can preserve them, or – for truly extensive film libraries – renting a storage unit may be a better option.
