Netflix Australia’s subscription price beats some, but costs more than others

Netflix runs a 3-tiered pricing strategy in Australia, starting at $9.99 per month. What does that get you?

Last updated:

Netflix has never moved from its initial aggressive push into the Australian market, though its premium offering is now one of the most expensive on the market. No longer is Netflix able to undercut its competitors as the competition begins doing so to it.

Netflix Australia’s $9.99 per month cost is part of a 3-tier pricing strategy:

$9.99 per monthOne device allowed to stream in standard definition
$13.99 per monthTwo devices allowed to stream in high definition
$19.99 per monthUp to four devices allowed to stream in ultra high definition

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 1,080p, otherwise known as high definition.

Other streaming services

The Fairfax Media-and-Nine-Network-owned streaming service Stan is priced starting at $10 per month. Amazon Prime Video is cheap at $6.99/month. Then there's Disney+ with a flat monthly fee of $8.99 or annual bill of $89.99. New streaming services keep popping up, but Netflix has taken a backwards step when it comes to its pricing strategy.

Netflix content

Netflix is able to boast that it is one of the biggest streaming services with more than 5,000+ shows and movies combined.

Netflix and Stan offer 30-day free trials, but how do they go head to head?

      Days of our Lives is not available on Netflix, Presto or Stan. However, it is available on Foxtel’s streaming service, Foxtel Play.

      Thanks,

      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

      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
