Netflix is launching in Australia tomorrow! And while VPN services are busy sending emails with subject lines like “Why you still need us”, I must say the launch lineup for Netflix Australia is looking pretty good.
There is an apparent “leaked launch library” that can be found here we are still waiting to confirm its validity though. Netflix have confirmed that Orange Is The New Black will have both seasons available to stream, as well as the third season on launch day, which will be a nasty knock for Foxtel. This also is the case for House Of Cards, with ALL three seasons being available on launch. I don’t know how they did it, but this is definitely a major step forward in Australian streaming.
Netflix members will be able to instantly watch an array of Netflix original series, stand-up comedy specials and documentaries, including the family thriller, Bloodline, starring Ben Mendelsohn, Sissy Spacek and Kyle Chandler; the epic adventure story of Marco Polo; the sharp and witty Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; Chelsea Handler: Uganda Be Kidding Me Live; Aussie comedian Jim Jefferies: Bare; DreamWorks Animation’s The Adventures of Puss in Boots; and the Academy Award-nominated documentary Virunga, among others. In the coming months, Netflix members will exclusively enjoy the gritty action drama Marvel’s Daredevil; the dramatic thriller Sense8, the highly-anticipated movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny and comedy series Grace and Frankie.
At launch and beyond, members can enjoy an exciting range of exclusive and licensed content from many of the world’s leading distributors including Warner Bros., BBC, FOX, NBC Universal, Village Roadshow Entertainment, Beyond Distribution, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and The Walt Disney Company.
Netflix provides an unbeatable entertainment experience for great value with many titles available in high-definition, Dolby® Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound and Ultra HD 4K, where available. Members can stream on nearly any Internet-connected screen including smart televisions, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Apple iOS, Windows and Android tablets and smartphones. Data charges may apply for mobile and home broadband connections.
The service also will be available on Fetch TV’s second-generation set-top box. Film and TV fans can also access Netflix on game consoles, including Sony’s PlayStation 3 (PS3™) and PlayStation 4 (PS4™), Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and Nintendo’s Wii U.
Consumers also will be able to purchase Netflix gift cards in denominations of $20, $30 and $50 at participating Australian retailers, including Woolworths, Coles, Big W, EB Games, 7-Eleven, Australia Post and Officeworks.
