Netflix Inc. got its start renting DVDs through the mail in the U.S. during the late 1990s and added Internet video streaming in 2007. It has been expanding globally with a streaming-only service. On Wednesday, Netflix announced its fourth international market.

The Internet video service costs $8 per month in the U.S. and is priced in the same range internationally. Netflix said it would reveal its prices for a new service in four Nordic countries later this year.
