Updated December 12, 2018 10:17:42 Australian consumers have a choice between the $80.99 and $90.99 ABC TV subscription plans and they’re likely to pay more than they are getting on the new Netflix streaming service.
As a result, many will be paying more for a service they already like.
That’s what’s happening in Australia as Netflix launches its new streaming service on Monday.
Netflix is already available in some parts of the country, but in Australia it’s a different story.
The subscription service launched last week, and many Australians are now using it to watch the ABC iView.
Netflix announced its new subscription service in early December, and it’s available to customers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
It includes live TV, movies, documentaries, news and documentaries, as well as original content.
On Monday, it’ll be available in the States, but customers in Australia will be able to watch its first episode of the series The Crown in their home.
Netflix said it expects to launch in Australia in the second half of 2019.
