Netflix Australia Launch


As we all know Australia lies in a unique geographical position of ‘too damn far away’. Left to our glorious summery devices we aren’t generally effected by this isolation. It does however wreak havoc on the prices of consumer products like clothes, electronics and media services.

Netflix being the forward thinking bunch they are have expanded their highly popular service to the sunburnt country.


How we felt before Netflix arrived in Australia

As to be expected the reluctance of Australia’s current media and tv streaming services was fairly obvious but still missed the mark. Foxtel Play entered the market with some pretty high fees but have since lowered their charges to be slightly more in line with the Australian market by charging between $25-50 a month.


Netflix aims to provide accessible and affordable content with packages ranging from $8.99 to $14.99 per month. They have the exclusive rights to multi award winning shows House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.


How we felt after Netflix launched in Australia

Netflix has never released the exact number of titles available but needless to say it’s a lot. More than you need but that shouldn’t stop you from signing up, chucking a sickie and spending a day making your eyes go square.
