This Graph Shows Just How Much Netflix Australia Is Killing The Competition

Netflix first, daylight second.

That graph, released by audience researchers Roy Morgan, shows that more than 1,000,000 Australians in more than 400,000 homes have access to Netflix.

Its nearest competitor, the Foxtel/Channel Seven-owned Presto, has a fraction of the audience with 97,000 subscribers.

Stan, the Fairfax/Nine joint venture has 91,000 viewers, while only 43,000 Aussies have Quickflix.


Roy Morgan General Manager Tim Martin suggests the recent Game of Thrones finale may force viewers to choose between Foxtel and Netflix.

"Over five million Australians live in a household subscribed to Foxtel, whether directly or as bundled with other services through a telecommunications provider such as Telstra or Optus," he said in a statement. "And this currently includes around 300,000 Netflix subscribers. Are they adding Netflix, and planning to keep Foxtel too? Or were they holding on to Foxtel until Game of Thrones wrapped up season five last week?"
