The CEO of Netflix says the streaming site wants to remove the territorial licensing restrictions that currently prevent Australians from getting all the TV shows and movies available on its US service within the next ten years.
Despite Netflix launching in Australia in May last year, many people still use a virtual private network (VPN) service to access the US website, so they can experience the full range of shows.
The news comes as Netflix released the trailer for Australian director Baz Luhrmann's new series The Get Down, set in the Bronx in the 1970s starring Jaden Smith.
Netflix also announced that it would be expanding to 130 new countries, including Russia, Indonesia and South Korea.
