Netflix lost most of its Marvel (Disney) themed content in late 2017 - early 2018

The Australian and global streaming TV - content wars are alive and well, with Netflix, Stan, 9NOW and YouTube Red dominating much of the sector. Then there's Foxtel which has been forced to dramatically reduce its pricing and revamp their offerings in the past 12 months or so. Then there's comms elephant and giant like Telstra with their Telstra TV, which is of an excellent quality by all accounts, but whose bottom line price tag may scare off most potential customers.

Netflix at a touch more then $10 a month is excellent value, and then there's Stan at $20 odd, and how can we forget the likes of the sports entertainment powerhouse's WWE Network at $12 a month or so for down under subscribers.

With Australia's population at the 24 million or so mark (who knows what it really is hey, judging by Sydney traffic and urban sprawl), there's only so many potential punters to sign up to a paid streaming service, and Australian streaming consumers are pretty well educated. They were even pretty switched on in the heyday of the Australian pay TV when we first started and selling the Optus Vision / Optus Communications package in the region of $39.99 per month, sometimes even with a Free Instillation. Bargain!
