Keen to bring its popular movie and television delivery service to yet more multimedia consumers around the world, Netflix has announced plans to launch in 43 more countries before the close of 2011.

The new markets Netflix is expanding into include the likes of Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean, which will receive American, local and global content in language choices of Spanish, Portuguese and English.

According to an official spokesperson, the new countries set to gain Netflix will only have access to streamed media, which is apparently its aim for all international markets.

The expansion announcement comes after platform coverage grew to include Canada during the tail end of 2010—marking the first time Netflix services moved beyond the United States.

That being said, the shift across the border has not exactly gone to plan for Netflix. According to a CNN report, uptake has been somewhat slow and stood at around 800,000 subscribers at the end of the company’s first-quarter report.

The company has said it hopes to crack one million subscribers by the end of summer.
