CompareTV’s History

Since 2013, millions of Australians have come to trust Compare TV as their home for all things digital entertainment. Starting out in a suburban lounge room in Sydney, Australia, Compare TV sought to give Australians a go-to site for all things online entertainment.

Today, Compare TV is based in Warriewood, NSW with a growing team of experts comparing, reviewing and assessing plans, deals and prices across many categories; streaming TV, music, gaming, broadband and mobile.  All to ensure you find the perfect blend of content, platforms and plans – no matter what you watch or how you want to watch it.

How do we make money?

Compare TV is a 100% privately owned Australian company. We are not owned by a bank or insurer which means we don’t have any hidden agendas or sales targets to hit. We’re able to provide consumers with a free service because we have affiliate agreements in place with providers. This means that when you click through on one of our plans or promotional adverts and are redirected to our providers website (you will always be alerted to this via a loading page), they pay us a referral fee. That referral fee is not passed on to you in regards to the plan price nor is the price increased to cover our costs. We try to include as many suppliers & products in the market however there they may not be included in our search – for example, we may not be able to show a supplier’s products because we do not have an agreement with them or because they do not wish to be included in our comparison.

Can you trust our information to be accurate?

We monitor all providers and the market continually, ensuring we update daily with any changes or new deals. Our aim is to ensure our results are comprehensive and accurate.

Why do people use CompareTV?

People use Compare TV because we help you find the best product or deal for your needs. We don’t mind who you switch to or who you sign up to, we just care that you switch to the right deal for you! Our aim is to secure the correct information so you can easily navigate your way through the sea of choice!
