Netflix Australia vs Netflix US TV shows library comparison

Netflix US might dominate Netflix Australia and New Zealand when it comes to content, but do you know exactly what you're missing out on?

Since Netflix finally launched Down Under, Aussies have enjoyed a bevy of exclusive series and hours upon hours of quality television and movies. However, the service is far from perfect. Netflix Australia still lacks many of the titles available in the US Netflix library, from hot new shows to all-time classics. In the table below, we've listed some of the most popular TV shows on Netflix US and whether they're available on Netflix here Down Under.

      Hi Dalwood,

      Thanks for your question. To remove a show from your personal list on Netflix, scroll to the “My List” section on the Netflix home page, click the series you want to remove and then click the tick next to the words “My List” beside the show’s description. This will remove the series from your personal list.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards,

      Matt

      Thanks for your comment! Netflix is regularly updating its library with new content and removing TV shows, and though this list was accurate at the time of writing, it’s possible the library has since changed. If I may ask, which shows do you believe are incorrectly labelled?

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Jim,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Unfortunately not. However, The Americans is available on Presto.

      Hope this information helped.

    Good Day! When the flip is Sydney weekender arriving on Netflix Australia? Cheers

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieMay 23, 2016Staff

      Hi Mike,

      That’s a bloody good question. Currently, Sydney Weekender isn’t available on Netflix or even its Aussie competitors, Presto or Stan. As for which provider decides to stream Sydney Weekender first, I’d say it’s a case of who dares wins.

      Cheers,
      Brodie

    Hi there,

    On the list it says ‘life’ from year 2007 is available. unfortunately I don’t think it is as I’ve tried searching for it.

      BrodieMay 19, 2016Staff

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for spotting that. You’re right, it doesn’t look like 2007’s Life is on Netflix Australia. I’ll update the table with the correct information.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

      Hi there,

      Netflix has not announced any plans to add The L Word to its library. However, you can catch it on Stan.

    Is Greys Anatomy streamed on any provider in Australia?
    I’m after older seasons… 4/5/6/7

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieApril 11, 2016Staff

      Hi Miss Molly,

      Unfortunately, Grey’s Anatomy is not available to stream on any service in Australia. I would recommend downloading the later seasons through iTunes at $2.99 an episode or $29.99 for the entire season.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
