Not only is Netflix coming to Australia later this month, but Microsoft has now made sure that your Xbox will be well equipped to stream all your favorite TV shows and movies right after the launch. If you want to be prepared for the big day, you can already download the Netflix app and sign up for the mailing list to receive updates on new releases.
Don’t have an Xbox yet? If you’re thinking about buying one, there’s more good news: the purchase will come with a free 3 month prepaid subscription to Netflix. Also, you will now be able to collect Media Achievements and the associated bragging rights just from watching TV.
According to Microsoft, Netflix will also be supported by the Xbox One’s Snap feature, which allows you to multi-task. In other words, you will be able to watch TV or movies while performing another activity. If you’re worried about data limits, iiNet and Optus already confirmed that Netflix will be unmetered. Most likely, other ISPs will follow their lead as well.
