Netflix launches in March, partners with iiNet

Subiaco-based internet provider iiNet has announced its customers across all brands will have quota-free access to Netflix, when the online streaming service hits Australian shores in less than three weeks.

The internet service provider said the partnership with Netflix meant iiNet’s broadband, naked DSL, NBN and iiNet TV with Fetch customers would have access to as much Netflix content as they liked, without it counting against their monthly quota.

iiNet chief executive David Buckingham said the partnership opened up a whole world of affordable entertainment options for the company’s customers.

“In addition to our partnership with Fetch TV, Netflix significantly strengthens our entertainment offering and we expect it to be an extremely popular option for all those avid television and movie fans out there,” he said.

Netflix, which has close to 40 million subscribers in the US, will launch in Australia on March 24.

Meanwhile, iiNet copped a $204,000 fine from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission over an advertisement for one of its broadband plans which appeared on a Melbourne tram and billboard.

The commission said the ISP did not display the total price of the plan in a prominent location.
