Australians have been getting the blunt end of the TV and movie stick for decades now, but things are all about to change with Netflix announcing it will push out its subscription TV service Down Under in 2015.

The co-CEO of Village Roadshow has confirmed that Netflix will be available in Australia in 2015, but there is no word on restrictions to Netflix's catalogue, or pricing. I think we'll see a restriction of content, as Foxtel has quite the monopoly in the country, so VPN and DNS providers will still continue to give Aussies the best deal.

Piracy numbers should shift a little with Netflix in Australia, but if major restrictions are placed on the service to keep Foxtel pumping along, I expect quite the vocal out roar in the country.
