Neflix launching in Australia: Official pricing, content details now available
Netflix lovers in Australia will soon be able to enjoy the service in their region as well, and official pricing details are now available.
It's no big secret that Netflix is one of the most popular services of its kind, creating new addictions on a daily basis among the TV-hungry crowd. The service is not available in all parts of the world, but is nonetheless ready to expand its availability by reaching Australia.
After pricing details leaked online, detailing how much Netflix would cost Down Under, Netflix has officially confirmed to Gizmodo Australia just how much it will charge for its service. As it turns out, the leak was very accurate: a single-stream standard definition plan will be available for AU $8.99, a two-stream high-definition plan will go up to AU $11.99, while a four-stream 4K ultra-high definition "family" plan will be available for AU $14.99.
When it comes to available content, Netflix has confirmed that it will have both Season One and Two of the popular Orange Is the New Black ready for Australian consumers, as well as all three seasons of the controversial House of Cards political drama.
Previous rumors suggested that regaining the rights to its flagship Originals would require Netflix to engage in some tough negotiations with Foxtel, but it seems that everything worked out in the end. Some reports also claimed that Foxtel would have the first-play rights of the third season of Orange Is the New Black, but Netflix told Gizmodo Australia that a global release is scheduled for June 12.
These TV series have proved to be widely popular among consumers, and it's only natural that they will be part of Netflix' offer for Australia.
According to the new report, Netflix further confirmed to Gizmodo Australia that it will also have more Original content available including Bloodline, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Marco Polo, and more.
Lastly, Australian users will also be able to enjoy a neat new Netflix user interface (UI), "which proritises images and gives the whole thing a very iOS 8 streaming service feel." Netflix is set to make its big debut in Australia on Tuesday, March 24, and is already shaping up to be in high demand. We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
