    Netflix has been producing its own content for a while. With 20+ million subscribers in the US alone, it’s certainly cashed up for more original program content.

    On another note Netflix, Hulu etc. are simply geo-blocked, There are many Australians accessing these services now. Accessing/subscribing to them sits, at most in a legal grey area, if at all. Certainly more legit then piracy.

    Story notes TEN in Australia, although due to timezone we may actually beat Netflix anyway.

    Worldwide? Does this mean Netflix is finally coming to Australia?

    @J Bar what you’ve said doesn’t make much sense. It was made for the overseas market all along, not a show that failed in Oz first & then was marketed to overseas. International audiences like seeing Aussie shows with plenty of cliches & stereotypes, mostly white anglo saxon middle class characters, constantly fantastic warm sunny weather, (being a Melbournite i wish this were true!), cute furry animals, cheeky larakins etc but Aussies have grown tired of it over the years.

    @D@GP: Yeah, the same time as Hulu. The 4th of never.

    Interesting that the producer of Reef Doctors finally reveals the reason it was bought by Ten was because it was cheap and got them Australian drama points at a discount. This was the old Ten management. Perhaps the new management may have learnt something from this experience or will they continue to source cheap product from New Zealand to get their drama points. If they continue to think cheap with drama there will be little future for Ten.

    It’s just becomes embarrassing for Ten that they can’t make an Aussie series work in Australia, especially if overseas markets are keen for Australian programming.

    Does anyone know when Netflix will start up in Oz?

    Fascinating. Australia getting involved with the Internet TV revolution.

    Interesting what he has to say about Reef Doctors. Doesn’t seem too fussed.
