In the coming months, Netflix members will exclusively enjoy the gritty action drama Marvel’s Daredevil; the dramatic thriller Sense8; the highly-anticipated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny and comedy series Grace and Frankie.
At launch and beyond, members can enjoy an exciting range of exclusive and licensed content from many of the world’s leading distributors including Warner Bros., BBC, FOX, NBC Universal, Village Roadshow Entertainment, Beyond Distribution, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and The Walt Disney Company.
Netflix provides an unbeatable entertainment experience for great value with many titles available in high-definition, Dolby® Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound and Ultra HD 4K, where available. Members can stream on nearly any Internet-connected screen including smart televisions, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Apple iOS, Windows and Android tablets and smartphones.
