Xbox Australia has announced that Netflix will be coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 24.
Users in Australia can now download the app and sign up for the mailing list, which will update them on the latest information on releases. Meaning when Netflix goes live on March 24, there won’t be any downloading needed to start using the new features. Netflix for Xbox One will also include Achievement integration, and Netflix will also support Xbox One’s Snap feature.
“Netflix is one of the world’s premiere entertainment services which we have had a long association with around the world, so we’re thrilled to announce this partnership on Xbox in Australia.” said Jeremy Hinton, Business Group Lead for Interactive Entertainment at Microsoft Australia. “The introduction of Netflix will further cement our dedication to being the number one entertainment platform in Australian living rooms.”
“We’re happy to extend our long history of partnership with one of the world’s leading gaming and entertainment platforms, giving Xbox owners in Australia and New Zealand fast and easy access to Netflix on cutting-edge technology,” said Paul Perryman, Director of Business Development at Netflix.
Alongside the announcement a new Xbox One Netflix bundle has been revealed, which will include a three months subscription to Netflix.
