Netflix intends to spend around $US8 billion ($A10.27 billion) on content in 2018, but Australian film and television producers are yet to see much of that investment. Thus far, fantasy/crime program "Tidelands" is the only Australian program that Netflix has commissioned. Although around 30 per cent of Australian households subscribe to Netflix, a survey presented to a review of Australian and children’s screen content in September found that only between two and 2.5 per cent of the content shown on Netflix in Australia was of local origin.
