LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Netflix is looking to broaden its presence in Europe, announcing Wednesday that it will offer streaming TV shows and movies in Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland by the end of the year.

The company had given hints of its plans previously, saying last month that it would expand into another market outside the U.S., but didn't give specifics.

Aside from the U.S., Netflix also has subscribers in Canada, Latin America, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The Los Gatos, Calif. company says the streaming service will be offered at a low monthly price, but didn't provide figures. It also said that more details about the service -- including content and supported devices -- will be disclosed closer to the rollout.
