Netflix reaches an estimated two million in the UK

The figures have been estimated by UK research house Enders Analysis.

It is thought that up to two million people in the UK are now streaming content from Netflix.

UK research house Enders Analysis suggested that Netflix's UK streaming numbers are "edging towards" two million in the UK.

The US service rarely reveals any subscriber information including statistics by territory and never details viewing figures. In August last year, it was revealed that they had reached the one million subsciber mark seven months after launching in the UK and Ireland. 

"Although Netflix releases no international streaming data by country, there is some evidence to suggest it is edging towards two million in the UK," Enders noted.

"But it is still on a tightrope as it races to add subscribers and revenues to cover its fast growing and somewhat shrouded content obligations."

The forecasts are covered in new Enders research on Netflix. Across all of its international services, Netflix has 7.75 million paying subscribers across all of its international services at last count. In the US it has 29.75 million streaming customers.

A 30 day free trial is still on offer for UK and Ireland customers.
