Netflix Offers to Add Streaming Service to U.S. Cable-TV Systems

Netflix Inc. (NFLX) seeks to put its streaming-video service on more cable set-top boxes, Chief Financial Officer David Wells said.

The company’s service is being offered in the U.K. through cable-TV operator Virgin Media. Netflix, based in Los Gatos, California, has had an “open offer” to U.S. cable operators for two years, Wells said today in an interview at an investor conference in New York.

Netflix is “still willing” to forge more partnerships, Wells said onstage at the event, which was sponsored by Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
