Major update coming to Netflix Australia

New website "from the ground up"

Major upgrades are coming to Netflix’s Australian website that are designed to make the service quicker and easier to use on tablets and touch enabled computers.

The upcoming website has been “built from the ground up” and is the first major upgrade to be made in four years.

Animations will guide users between separate webpages for an experience reminiscent of the applications used on smartphones and tablets.

Clicking the thumbnail of Daredevil, for instance, uses an animation to seamlessly populate a description, an episode overview, reviews and more.

People using a touchscreen device to stream Netflix will find the website easier to use as it supports more gestures. Rows of titles can be browsed easily a swipe at a time.

The update will help Netflix compete with local streaming video on demand services, such as Presto and Stan.

A global rollout starts today and it could take as long as two weeks for the updated website to go live in different countries. A “small number” of people may need to upgrade their browser for the new Netflix site to work.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
