The shows Netflix mentions in its announcement are mostly ones it produces itself, which are the one area where it generally won’t have to battle against long-term rights deals held by Foxtel and local free-to-air networks.

The timing isn’t altogether surprising, given that rival service Stan is expected to launch in February.
