The agreement will see the Australian distributor provide a lineup of comedy specials featuring Australian comedians, including Carl Barron, Arj Barker, Kitty Flanagan, Jimeoin and the Umbilical Brothers.

As well, Netflix got exclusive streaming rights to Australian-made kids titles including Lightning Point, the first season of Mako Mermaids and the first three seasons of H20: Just Add Water. International titles Maya the Bee, Lalaloopsy and The Hive will also stream exclusively on Netflix.

Beyond’s long-running factual series Mythbusters is also part of the agreement.
