For those of you who live downunder, exciting news has just arrived in our inbox. Netflix (finally) has a release date in the country, and that date is March 24. Not long to wait now then TV lovers! The service will be available on just about every platform you can imagine, including TVs themselves, but a special partnership with Microsoft will see new owners of an Xbox One score a free three month subscription to the service. The deal will be available at specific stores, so look for an announcement on who it is - JB, EB, Big W, etc. - shortly.
The partnership is of particular political interest, given Xbox Australia's existing, fruitful relationship with Foxtel, Netflix biggest local rival. Will this dampen that relationship? We'll see. You can of course use Netflix on your Sony and Nintendo platforms, too. There will also be specific deals available through Vodafone and iiNet.
