Netflix, Feds Cooperate On Fast Auto-Classification Tool
The Turnbull Government is working on the pilot of a new world-leading classification tool that it claims will streamline the process of classifying Netflix content, making it easier for many programs to become available to Australian audiences.
The Government says it has been working with Netflix over the past year to create the tool, which combines Netflix’s technology with Australia’s classification ratings and consumer advisories.
It’s said to be the first time in the world that a self-regulatory tool will be used to classify films and television series. If needed, the official Classification Board will be able to revoke classifications made by the Netflix tool and replace them with its own decisions.
