Our TV viewing choices will be expanding next year after popular subscription service Netflix announced it will launch in Australia and New Zealand in March 2015.
In a move that’s sure to shake things up with free-to-air TV viewing and Foxtel’s Pay TV service, Netflix has confirmed it is finally coming to Australia and New Zealand.
Netflix is already available in the US, UK, Canada, Latin America and across Europe.
Customers of the popular online content subscription service will be able to watch a curated collection of TV shows and movies in high definition and even 4K when available.
Netflix members will be able to enjoy the service on a number of internet-connected devices with the ability to start watching on one screen before pausing and continuing the program from that point on another screen.
Netflix will also be available as a pre-loaded app on smart TVs as well as gaming consoles, Blu-ray Disc players and set-top-boxes.
Popular programs like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black were originally aired exclusively on Netflix.
Upcoming Netflix programming in 2015 will include Marco Polo (below), BoJack Horseman and Bloodline (above).
There is no word yet on Australian pricing but hopefully it will be comparable to the monthly $8.99 fee paid in the US for an all-you-can-eat subscription.
Australian and New Zealand pricing will be announced closer to the March launch date.
