Yes You Can Pay To Access Netflix In Australia. Here’s How.

Season two of OITNB has now dropped on Netflix. If you can't wait until it hits Showcase in July, and still want to pay for it, click here.

Season two of Orange Is The New Black is dropping on Netflix at 5pm AEST on Friday June 6. THAT’S TODAY. Here’s how you can pay to watch it as soon as it lands.

If you’re a stickler for rules, wait until it lands on Showcase on Wednesday July 16.

HOW TO SIGN UP TO NETFLIX IN AUSTRALIA

(Even if you’re a total derp with computers)

STEP ONE: CHROME

If you are using Internet Explorer, stop. Stop being a chump. Using Firefox or Chrome? Congrats you have just completed Step One.

STEP TWO: MEDIA HINT

Go to Media Hint. It’s pretty straight forward: install the extension for which ever browser you are using. Chrome has an extra step, which is illustrated for you when you download the Chrome Extension File (.crx)

If Media Hint isn’t working, or it’s newly-introduced fee disgusts you, try Unblock-Us, which is only $5 a month and allows access to Netflix regions other than the US.

STEP THREE: NETFLIX

Surf your way over to Netflix, and you will see the site is eagerly awaiting for you sign up and enter your details.

All standard stuff really, except when you get to the point where it asks you to enter a zip code. Here you will need to enter a US zip code. Google any one you want, but I choose to live it large in ‘90210’, and you can too. [UPDATE: A bunch of our readers have let us know that their combo debit/credit cards aren’t being accepted. Other cards are fine though!)

STEP FOUR: SEE YA
