Netflix will hit Australia and New Zealand in March. The streaming service's original shows like 'House of Cards', 'Breaking Bad', 'Marco Polo' and 'BoJack Horseman' will be available from launch.

"Australia and New Zealand have been a long time coming for us," Cliff Edwards, Netflix's director of corporate communications and technology, told Fairfax Media. "Both countries are great locations for us, we know that people have been very enthusiastic with us not in country and we hope that enthusiasm will grow when we launch in March."

Pricing will be announced in the coming months, Edwards added. He also said the service had been in talks about securing content.

"We've been talking to content providers for quite some time in Australia and New Zealand as we always do before we launch in a country, we don't just parachute in," he said.

Netflix is now available in over 40 countries around the world, and has more than 53 million subscribers.
