Netflix Australia vs Netflix US TV Shows Library Comparison

Information verified correct on October 1st, 2016

So you've already been using Netflix US via a VPN service. With the paid version available to Australians tomorrow, is it time to switch?

Since launch, Australians have enjoyed a bevy of Netflix exclusives and hours upon hours of quality television and movies. However, the biggest complaint Netflix received so far is that the service doesn't provide the entire Netflix library that the US offers.

Not sure how to access Netflix US? Check out our guide to using a VPN.

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

    • Staff
      Brodie | May 23, 2016

      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.

      Brodie | May 19, 2016

      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,

      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

    • Staff
      Brodie | April 11, 2016

      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,

      Hi Archer,

      The Simpsons isn’t available to stream on any Australian service. Luckily, The Simpsons still runs every day at 7:05 on free-to-air television.

      All the best,
      Brodie
