Netflix is co-producing a series with Foxtel, ahead of a wider partnership, to enable its content to be streamed on the Australian pay-TV operator's set-top boxes.

Sky Netflix 19Feb2019According to local reports, later this year Foxtel’s iQ box will be equipped to switch seamlessly between content carried by the pay-TV company and that streamed on-demand by Netflix.

It follows a tie-up between Netflix and Sky last year whereby the UK pay-TV service now offers Netflix through its electronic programme guide (pictured).

Meanwhile, the second season of Foxtel’s political thriller Secret City has been confirmed for global release on Netflix.

Two-time Academy award-nominee Jacki Weaver will reprise her role alongside Anna Torv, who won a Logie for her performance in the first season of Secret City.

This series sees journalist Harriet Dunkley, played by Torv, released from prison, only to be caught up in a military and political cover-up that leads her back to Canberra’s corridors of power.

“Partnering with Netflix enables this great story to be seen around the world by audiences that wouldn’t normally see a Foxtel show,” said Brian Walsh, executive director of television at Foxtel.

“We are proud to tell uniquely Australian stories at Foxtel, stories that a made for Australians by our local cast and creatives.”

Secret City: Under the Eagle has been filmed in Sydney and Canberra.
