Since its mid-September launch in six European markets, Netflix has already managed to reach more than 100,000 subscribers in France, Le Figaro reported Wednesday.

The online streaming giant brought its service to France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and Luxembourg in mid-September. It has grown its international subscriber base, but has typically not broken out its users by country.
