With a launch date looming on Tuesday here in Australia, Netflix is getting all their ducks in a row updating their Netflix app on Google Play, making it available for Australians.
Netflix launch will occur on Tuesday, with users able to sign up for a plan – which is expected to include a 1
Week Month (thanks Simon) free trial as is the case in the US. Pricing for the plans haven’t been announced, but Netflix has advised that they will come in three tiers : a single stream SD plan, a two-stream HD plan and a four-stream 4K UHD ‘Family’ plan.
The Netflix app which has previously carried the familiar: ‘This app is incompatible with all of your devices’ warning now reads ‘This app is compatible with all of your devices’. The Netflix app is fairly good to use, including compatibility for Android TV as well as most Android devices unlike other streaming services in Australia.
What content will be available hasn’t been announced but we expect to find out more when they kick off on Tuesday morning. Until then you can grab the app, but unless you’re signed up for a US account it’s not of much use at this stage.
