Netflix is one of the biggest and largest providers of Internet streaming services of movies and TV shows. The company has over more than 10,000 streaming hours for its visitors. Being a provider in the most parts of the world including parent country United States and in some parts of Europe and other regions, the company is focused to expand its operations in Australia as well after receiving a lot of interest and requests from the country. For the past 12 months, the people of Australia are begging for US TV and movie streaming service Netflix to launch in Australia.
Hence, their request has been listened as the company recently announced that it will be introducing Netflix streaming services in Australia starting March 2015. NFLX in Australia will have a lackluster library of titles, as shown by the fact that the launch titles were mediocre at best and did not include any of the big exclusives that have garnered Netflix popularity, including House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. NewsDOTcom gave a justified reason as “even though Netfix commissioned the shows in the United States, their Australian rights are owned by Foxtel (partly owned by News Corp Australia, the publisher of news.com.au). It’s not just these shows either that will be affected by this, with new Australian streaming service Stan claiming the exclusive rights to Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.”
However, the question here is that will local users make the switch when Netflix launches in Australia in March next year? It is officially coming to Australia and New Zealand in 2015. There’s no launch date other than March and pricing is yet to be confirmed, although it is likely to sit somewhere between $10 and $15 per month for all-you-can-eat access to its library of movies and TV shows.
