Tech Byte: Netflix’s Australian pricing and library allegedly leaks ahead of launch *Updated*


Netflix have officially confirmed the below pricing to Gizmodo AU. To reiterate, that’s AU$8.99, $11.99 and $14.99 on each plan. Original news piece follows.

There’s only two days left before Netflix officially reveals their Australian pricing and library of titles but someone on Reddit may have beaten them to the punch. Hit the jump to find out what you’ll (allegedly) be spending and what you’ll be able to watch.

The leak first appeared on Imgur and the Reddit Australia subreddit and is made up of a series of screenshots from Netflix’s own page of streaming plans. The company has three separate tiers of streaming services and those are represented in the Australian version too.

US customers currently pay US$7.99 per month for standard def (or DVD quality) content for a single screen. If you’d like it on two different screens, that gets you high-def content and if you want four screens you’ll also get 4K or ultra-hi-def for US$11.99 per month.

Australia is looking at $8.99, $11.99 and $14.99 respectively. If they pan out, these prices should be considered a real kindness, especially given the abysmal state of the Australian dollar against the greenback which is hovering somewhere around US$0.73.

In terms on available content, this would be a very long news post indeed if we were to list everything however if the leak pans out then it would appear Netflix intends to have a page solely for Australian content. The pages in the leak show programs and movies like Bran Nue Dae, Rabbit Proof Fence and Balibo, and even a bit of stand up comedy from Greg Fleet and Jimoein.

Here’s an embed of then gallery if you’re keen to trawl through it.

Netflix arrives in Australia on March 24.
