It's Official: Netflix To Launch In Australia And New Zealand In March 2015

Netflix is finally coming to Australia, with the company announcing its intentions to launch Down Under in March 2015.

After months of maybes and maybe nots, Netflix officially announced today that it’s “heading down under”.

Netflix announced it would offer its service to Australians and New Zealanders from March 2015.

It will stream high-def content to Aussies and Kiwis, and even offer “4K [content] where available”.

“At launch, the premium and unique Netflix offering will include such original series as Marco Polo, BoJack Horseman and, among many kids titles, DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien.”

Details are very brief at this stage, but at least now we know it’s for real: Netflix is coming to Australia, and we only have to wait four more months for it to get here.
