When Netflix users in the U.S. are sick of their queue or feel like they've already seen much of what's been offered on "Watch Instantly," they can just scroll down to the "Recently Added" subhead and see if the video service has anything fun and new to watch.

Until today, only U.S. and Canadian users had this feature. Now, people in the U.K., Ireland, and Latin America can see all of the new titles that Netflix has "recently added," announced the streaming service today.

This feature, "gives members who have been with Netflix for more than one month an easy way to find all of the titles that have been added during the past month," Netflix's vice president of product innovation Todd Yellin wrote in a blog post today. "The 'Recently Added' row appears not only on the web, but also on game consoles, tablets, phones and all other devices that stream Netflix."

Last September, the Netflix launched video streaming across 43 countries in Latin America with access to the service in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. And in January, the U.K. and Ireland also got access to Netflix's streaming video.
