Netflix Goes Dutch

The Netherlands is Netflix's (NASDAQ: NFLX  ) next expansion market, and the timing couldn't be better.

Netflix has more than 7 million streaming subscribers outside of the United States, and the company knows what happens if it takes too long. It entered the U.K. last year to find itself battling BSkyB and Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) . 

In this video, longtime Fool contributor Rick Munarriz explains why Netflix is doing the right thing in expanding aggressively overseas.

    We knew Netflix was expanding international. The video doesn't address the fact that international expansion is not accelerating.

    I'm not saying that Netflix won't once again get more aggressive, but their aggression is not ramping currently.
