Netflix Australia has launched a new video streaming service that promises to be the largest and most comprehensive video service in the world.
“We want to give you the most content you’ve ever had on your device,” the company says in its launch announcement.
“The only limitation is that it is free.”
Netflix Australia is available on the Mac and iOS, and it’s the company’s first video streaming offering.
The service is available to anyone over the age of 18.
Netflix Australia’s content will be available in HD and on demand.
The company says it has the most popular movies and TV shows in the history of Netflix, and has “one of the largest catalogs of original movies and shows in Australian cinema history”.
The new service will be free for existing customers, with new users getting a “Netflix Pass” that will let them watch movies and television shows at any time, at no extra cost.
Netflix will also be offering new streaming content for the “most popular” movies and programs.
“Netflix is here to bring you the greatest content from the best Australian independent film and television talent,” Netflix says.
The new Netflix streaming service is also available to existing Netflix customers.
“If you’re an existing Netflix customer, you can stream content without a subscription for free on the Netflix Pass, but if you want to upgrade to the full service, you’ll need to pay a subscription fee.”
The new services will also include original programming, movies, and television content from Australia’s most famous independent film makers, including director Michael Haneke, writer-producer J.K. Simmons, and writer-director-star John Boyega.
The Australian Film Institute says the company has a strong track record of delivering great original content and a broad range of movies, TV shows, and films from the country’s top independent film companies.
Netflix’s service will also offer access to “in-demand” movies like “A Walk Down the Road”, and the company is working on a new TV series, “Birds of a Feather”.
The company is also investing heavily in the local content market, launching its Australian Netflix store in 2017.
“In addition to offering the largest selection of local content, Netflix will be the first to deliver the best and most relevant content in the market to Australians,” Netflix Australia chief executive officer Richard Mackay said.
“This will include original Australian content from a wide range of companies, including local independent film studios and TV producers.”
The company also said it would work with Australian film companies and independent filmmakers to bring films to its customers.
