There are only two days left until Netflix’s Australian prices are revealed, but we might not have to wait that long after all, following an alleged leak posted to Reddit earlier today. Here’s what you might pay.
The supposed leak, first posted to Imgur and Reddit Australia, consists of a screenshot of Netflix’s streaming plan page. The company has offered three different tiers of service for its customers since late 2013.
In the US, the One Screen plan gets customers standard definition (DVD-quality) content on one screen for $US7.99 per month, the Two Screen plan gets you high-definition content and two different screens, while the Four Screen plan gets you 4K/UHD content across four screens for $US11.99 per month.
So what will Australia pay?
According to the leak, the three pricing models in Australia will cost $8.99, $11.99 and $14.99 for SD, HD and 4K plans respectively.
The prices are considerably cheaper than what they might be if Netflix decided to enforce the weaker Australian dollar, which has dropped from parity to around $0.73 against the US Greenback.
An earlier post to Reddit Australia showed how users were attempting to discover Australian pricing by logging into their US accounts via a VPN.
We've reached out to Netflix to see if the pricing is accurate. Update: Netflix isn't commenting on the supposed leak.
There are far too many titles to list, but if the leak is to believed, Netflix will have a dedicated page for Australian content. That page currently includes titles like Balibo, The Tunnel, Bran Nue Dae, The Reef, Rabbit Proof Fence and Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead.
There's also a small contingent of stand-up from Australian comics, including Greg Fleet, Jimoein and Alex Williamson.
