Let me attempt to explain the problem here. I'd like to preface my statements by saying that I personally canceled my netflix subscription too because of the lack of content.
Outside of Netflix Originals, i.e. shows and movies that Netflix produce themselves, Netflix has to pay the content providers for the rights to distribute third party content. And providers charge a premium for these rights per region, especially when its premium or new content.
This is very costly. So Netflix will make decisions on what content to provide for what region, based on how much revenue that region generates. So in the States and Canada where they are domiciled and have been operating for a while, they have massive subscription revenue and therefore can afford to provide for those regions the best and latest content. I doubt they are even making enough yet in our region to justify what they are paying in terms of distribution rights.
It's the same system with sports rights. For instance, DStv had to drop Bundesliga because not enough people were watching it to justify what they were paying for the distribution rights.
