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?
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 month||One device allowed to stream in standard definition|
|$13.99 per month||Two devices allowed to stream in high definition|
|$19.99 per month||Up 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 is able to boast that it is one of the biggest streaming services with more than 5,000+ shows and movies combined.
