Netflix's impending arrival on Australian shores is no longer a rumour – it's coming in March.

It has confirmed the launch window via Twitter, with a cheeky upside down tweet to announce its arrival downunder.

 

 

Details at this stage on pricing, availability and range is scarce on the ground at this stage, however the popular IPTV service has told media that it would be coming with original series such as Marco Polo, BoJack Horseman, and All Hail King Julien.

However, there was no mention of popular Netflix content such as Orange is The New Black and House of Cards which have been broadcast on other Australian services.

Several IPTV and TV players have noted that Netflix could be hampered on launch as it does not have the Australian rights to much of its content.

However, while little detail has been released, it did say that shows could be streamed in Ultra-HD 4k where available.

The service will be available at launch on smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, computers, and a range of Internet-capable game consoles and set-top boxes.
