Foxtel loses House of Cards
A sure sign Netflix is closing in on Australia?
News Corp reports Foxtel was forced to omit the series from its 2015 presentation after Netflix withdrew the Australian broadcast rights.
But Foxtel will retain its other Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
A Foxtel spokesperson said, “Sorry, we don’t comment on (the) terms of our licensing deals.’’
Both previous seasons premiered in the US in February, meaning we will want to hear something definitive about Netflix launching locally very soon.
