Someone was listening all this time, took their time.
The thing that gives me the pips about all of this is that as soon as netflix announced it was launching in australia, the other content providers rushed to provide their own service to compete and reviewed their prices if they were already offering something similar...
If only they had done that in the first place...

The US streaming service says its entrance to the Australian market on Tuesday will not disrupt the traditional television industry, or even pay TV operator Foxtel.

Founder and chief executive Reed Hastings instead has his eye on ending the illegal downloading of movies and TV programs not screened by traditional broadcasters.

"We're really focused on heading off piracy," he told AAP.

"There's big piracy in Australia, and part of that is because there is not an easy, affordable service.

"What we have seen in Canada is as we grew, the amount of piracy declined, so that would be the hope here."

He believes most people would prefer to watch TV and films legally, as long as the content is available immediately and at an affordable price.
