The Australian entertainment world is about to be irrevocably altered.
Netflix, the revolutionary American television streaming service, is set to arrive in Australia tomorrow, posing a major challenge to local television with its exclusive content and competitive pricing.
The standard plan will cost Aussie viewers AU$8.99 a month, with a high-definition plan available for $11.99 a month and an ultra high-def 4K option priced at $14.99.
As a comparison, local streaming services stan and Quickflix cost $9.99 a month, while Presto charges $14.99 a month for both television and movies.
Meanwhile, Foxtel packages start at $25 a month on a 12 month plan.
The standard plan will offer access to all of Netflix’s premium content, including full seasons of original shows Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, plus licensed content from Warner Bros., BBC, FOX, NBC Universal, Village Roadshow Entertainment, Walt Disney and more.
New buzzed-about original shows Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Bloodline will also be available.
