Netflix Inc is expanding its streaming video service to 43 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

This is Netflix's second foray outside the United States; it began offering streaming video to Canadians last year.

Netflix, which streams TV shows and movies and is known for the bright red envelopes that carry its DVDs through the U.S. mail, said on Tuesday that subscribers members in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean will be able to access content in Spanish, Portuguese or English later this year.
