TV and movie watchers keen to watch their programs the way they want to will soon get their chance, because Netflix is finally coming to Australia.
The American TV and movie programming service known as Netflix is finally getting its chance to wow Australians, with an official release on the way, and not just the sort that Aussies can get by using a proxy or VPN.
Announced this week, Netflix will be bringing its HD, Full HD, and even 4K programming to Australians, making its library of TV shows and movies available to anyone spending on its monthly or annually plans, with the programming available on internet connected devices.
Currently, the service is available in the US, UK, Sweden, France, and Germany, among other European locations, and Australia will be the next place to receive the service, with New Zealand joining for this release.
Pricing hasn’t been announced as of yet, but we can’t expect it’ll be more than $20 per month, with the service bringing a back catalogue of titles when it launches in March of 2015. New content will also be there, with original content coming to Australia such as the animated show “BoJack Horseman,” the DreamWorks series “All Hail King Julien,” with a TV version of “Daredevil” set to arrive next year, also.
With a back catalogue spanning television programs from across the globe, not to mention a huge library of movies, it will be interesting to see what the television networks do next, and now that Netflix plans to roll out 4K Ultra HD content with it, those of you with 4K TVs might just have some properly high resolution content to play back on your big new TVs.
Now if you only you had a super-fast National Broadband Network…
