Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings has confirmed that the long awaited Netflix launch date for Australia and New Zealand will be the 24th March.
“Many Aussies and Kiwis have heard a lot about Netflix over the years, and we’re excited they’ll get to experience our unique blend of Netflix original content, local series and films, and popular movies and TV shows from around the world, all for a low monthly price,” says Hastings.
Netflix will be available on all major Australian broadband operators. However, customers of iiNet, the nation’s second-largest DSL Internet provider, will be able to use Netflix with no fear of the usage counting against home data caps, under the first un-metering agreement announced with a major broadband provider in Australia.
