Netflix Australia’s subscription price confirmed; will undercut rivals Stan, Presto & Quickflix.

Ahead of its much anticipated March 24 Australian launch date, US streaming service Netflix has announced a three tiered pricing strategy, starting at $8.99 per month.

This figure is part of Netflix’s aggressive push into the Australian marketplace, and directly undercuts its competitors.

The Fairfax Media-and-Nine-Network-owned streaming service Stan is priced at $10 per month, while the Foxtel-and-Seven-Network-owned Presto is going for the more marketable $9.99. Quickflix, which has no association with Netflix, starts at $14.99 per month.

Netflix Australia’s $8.99 per month cost is part of a three tier payment plan:

$8.99 per monthOne device allowed to stream in standard definition
$11.99 per monthTwo devices allowed to stream in high definition
$14.99 per monthUp to four devices allowed to stream in ultra high definition

Want all the TV shows and movies? You can get a free trial with each of the streaming internet tv providers below:

Ultra High Definition, otherwise known as Ultra HD or 4K, is based on a screen resolution that displays at least 8 million active pixels. In layman’s terms, it doubles the number of horizontal and vertical pixels offered by 1080p, otherwise known as high definition.

While no word yet on what content will be available on Netflix Australia, a series of screenshots claiming to be the Netflix Australia content offerings leaked online via Reddit.

Netflix, Stan, and Presto are all currently offering 30-day free trials.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please see our broadband plan to see if your current broadband plan is suitable. It will depend on how many hours of Netflix Australian you intend to stream.

      All movies are available in SD and many Netflix titles are available in HD.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

      Do you know if TPG has unmetered downloads for Netflix?
      Thank Paul

      Hey Paul,

      Currently, TPG don’t have any plans to offer unmetered streaming. For now, the only ISPs that provide unmetered streaming for Netflix are iiNet and Optus.

      Cheers,

      Brodie
