It was announced early this morning that Neflix had bought the Global Rights to the Shadowhunters TV series (read the article here). What this means is that Aussies now have a means to watch the show pretty much with the rest of the fandom around the world! Ok, maybe a day later (Wednesdays) but that's better than nothing!.
Shadowhunters on Netflix will premiere on the 13th January 2016 (a day after the US) from 7:01pm AEST!. It will air weekly after that (again, a day after the US).
For those who are new to the streaming content world and don’t know what Netflix is, here is a little Netflix 101 for you.
Netflix is a Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) service that allows people to watch movies and TV shows that are on their catalogue on any internet-connected device.
How much does it cost?
There are 3 plans: Each plan gives you a different level of video quality and a set number of streams (the number of devices you can watch Netflix at the same time)
- Plan 1: $8.99AU per month, which gives you all content in SD format, but only on one device at a time.
- Plan 2: $11.99AU per month, which gives you two streams of HD content (probably the most popular choice)
- Plan 3: $14.99AU per month, which gives you four streams of Ultra HD 4K content.
How do I get it?
You can watch Netflix on nearly any internet-connected device, including a smart TV, computer, tablet PC and smartphone. Netflix is also compatible with Apple TV and Google Chromecast.
Apps are available for iOS, Android and Windows, as well as second-generation Fetch TV and gaming consoles, like PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and Nintendo’s Wii U.
