TV in Australia – Your Ultimate Guide

What to watch and how to watch it. What you need to know – all while saving money. Now more than ever, Australians can get the best there is in TV entertainment at the push of a button. Gone are the days when TV viewing was restricted to a handful of broadcasting stations. With the advent of Cable TV, Australians can finally get a wider range of viewing option – not to mention the newer streaming services that have evolved in the last few years. As the broadband and mobile internet infrastructure in Australia continues to grow, these services make finding and watching a new favourite show possible – anywhere, anytime.

But while it sounds like the march of progress has handed viewers complete control over their viewing time, these advances come with new challenges. The plethora of new viewing options can make it hard to know which providers give you the best access. Then there’s subscription fees, bundling options and data requirements – as well as the issues that come from content licensing laws and geo-blocking.

While it’s true that there is now more content available to watch than ever before, this combined with the sometimes fractious nature of copyright and broadcasting laws can make it hard to know which provider has which shows and movies at any one time. And because these broadcast options can be so fractured, this, in turn, can make it hard to know if you are paying the best price for what you want to watch.

So how did we get here? How did we go from being content with clustering around the TV in the living room – watching a bunch of free-to-air TV stations with set schedule times – to being able to pay a small monthly fee to get the movies and shows we want streaming to our smartphones at any time?

How Australian TV Has Changed

In Australia, we used to have analogue TV stations broadcasting a range of shows, movies and sporting events at predefined times. If you were unlucky enough to not be in front of a TV at the time of airing, you missed out – unless you had a VCR set to record it.

Then along came cable and satellite TV. Not only did these services deliver a far greater range of content, but they also offered dedicated rerun channels that let the viewer catch up on programs they may have otherwise missed.

Not long after cable TV, the free-to-air stations in Australia started making the switch to digital broadcasting. This opened up space for more channels and more programming. But it also enabled online streaming. ABC’s iview was the first on the scene in 2008, introducing free-to-air catch-up services to an Australian audience and paving the way for other broadcasters to follow.

In 2015, Netflix became officially available in Australia. While Australians could subscribe to the service prior to this, they were reliant on VPN technology to access the content otherwise not available in the country.

Today there is a huge range of streaming video on demand services available in Australia. Some are subscription-based, charging a monthly fee to provide access to what they have to offer. Others offer a digital rental or purchase service, where customers can pay a small fee to watch specific movies, episodes or series. And others – most notably Amazon Prime, YouTube Premium and Fetch TV – offer a mix of the two

As you can imagine, this mix of services and pricing can make it hard to know which service offers you the best value. Luckily, we’re on hand to show you not only the hottest shows, movies and sporting events – but also where to watch them!

How to Watch – Your Options

Depending on what you want to watch, there is a huge range of ways to access your favourite shows and movies – not to mention sport. But it’s not just a question of what you want to watch or how you want to watch it – what technology you have available and are comfortable using, and how much you want to pay, are also major factors.

The first steps in choosing between TV providers in Australia is understanding what each one offers, how they’re accessed, the costs involved and the commitments required. This can sound like a lot of work, but luckily we’ve done the research for you!

Free-to-Air TV

Free-to-air television is nothing new in Australia, but the methods of accessing it have changed over the years. Previously all you needed was a TV and an aerial – providing that you lived in an area that was within broadcast range. Now with digital TV, you also need a set-top box to decode the digital signal. Most modern smart TVs come with one built in, so for many of us, that’s not an issue. Most of these set-top-boxes and smart TVs also come with recording software so you can set them to record your favourite shows in advance. However, if you miss your chance, most of the shows and events aired by free-to-air stations in Australia also make their programming available online via catch up services. These are available online, and you can access most of them on smartphones and tablets using dedicated apps. As the name suggests, free-to-air TV is free to watch. Most of the services – both online and broadcast – are supported by advertising. Some of the services require you to sign up with an email address, but they all remain free to access. Currently, the catch-up services include ABC iview, SBS On Demand, 7plus, 9Now, and Tenplay.

Cable TV

Cable TV gets its name from the fact that, for many subscribers, the signal is brought into their homes by a physical cable rather than a signal broadcast from a station tower. A set-top box then connects to the cable and decodes the channels. More modern set-top boxes let you pause, rewind and record live TV on the fly. A cable connection also offers the option of using the technology for a faster internet connection over using ADSL and traditional copper wires, although this advantage is set to disappear as the NBN rollout continues across the country. If cable TV isn’t available in your area, it may be possible to get a satellite connection installed to enjoy the same programming. While other countries have many cable TV providers, Australia has one that dominates the market. Offering a huge range of content packs, Foxtel remains Australia’s first choice for cable TV. Foxtel also offers its cable subscribers to option of watching their favourite shows online via the Foxtel Go app.

Streaming TV

In recent years there has been a big shift in viewing preferences in Australia, and it’s no secret why. Streaming video on demand services have been around for a decade, but it’s only recently that they seem to have picked up momentum.

In part, this is due to the changing nature of TV. There is so much viewing content available that the market has started to fracture into niche services. You can now find streaming providers that focus on one genre to the exclusion of all else. Want to watch cricket? There’s a service for that. How about reality TV 24 hours a day? That exists. Are you interested in Japanese anime? There are at least three available in Australia that cater to this niche.

The other driving factor in the growth of streaming TV is technology. Before, the internet infrastructure in Australia was not robust enough to handle streaming video on a large scale. We didn’t have TVs that connected to the internet, nor did we have the huge range of portable and handheld devices with screens clear enough to watch what we want. Now with mobile streaming, you can catch up on your favourite shows anywhere that you have a mobile connection.

Streaming TV companies offer different methods of access, depending on the services. Some are subscription-based, others offer rental and purchase options. Then there are those that offer a mix, and still others can be free to use but are supported by advertising, which is switched off for subscribers.

The big players in the Australian streaming TV market include Amazon Prime, BigPond Movies, DocPlay, Fetch TV, Google Play, hayu, iTunes, Kayo, Netflix, Ovo Play, Stan, and YouTube Premium.

Picking Your TV Viewing Options

When you’re considering your TV viewing options, there are a number of things you need to keep in mind to make sure you get a service (or services) that suit you.

You’ll want to consider the content available, but don’t neglect the other lifestyle elements involved in your viewing habits.

For example, say you are working full-time, spend a chunk of your day either at work or commuting, and have a family to care for at home. Chances are that your viewing time on a big TV will be shared with others. However, you may have a powerful smartphone or tablet with a data-rich mobile phone plan. This could mean that you will want a service to offer a mix of content, while also supporting mobile viewing.

On the other hand, maybe you are retired and have a bit more freedom in your day. You have a smart TV but don’t have – or don’t like using – a handheld device for watching streaming TV. This could mean that you are more interested in a service that is focused on your viewing interests, and mobile viewing support matters less.

Everybody has different needs. Do you like watching TV on the big screen? Think you will you be sharing your viewing service with others? Is mobile availability important to you?

Content

Perhaps most obviously, you need to make sure that the service actually has the content that you want to watch. The licensing rules that govern who can broadcast what can be very confusing, and at times you may find that your favourite TV show has different seasons available across different services. Also, these broadcasting licenses may lapse or change hands over time. So if you’re signing up to a service for a particular show, series or sporting event, it’s important to check in advance to see if your show is set to stay in one place, or if it’s likely to move.

Costs and Contracts

This is most important for the subscription-based services, those that charge rental fees, and those that offer the chance to purchase official downloads. Compared to the days when you had to physically go to a store and rent movies or boxed sets of TV series, modern subscription services are quite affordable. Many offer a flat monthly rate for all-you-can-eat viewing, while others require a committed contract of a year or more. Free-to-air TV is, of course, free, but even those services that offer free access can cost you in terms of the data they use up. So it makes sense to check the costs involved, not just for a subscription or rental, but also to try to uncover how much data your streaming service uses. That way you can work out how much the service will really cost you to use.

Advertising

A few recent marketing studies have shown that Australians are typically cynical about advertising. You find it intrusive or feel that it interferes with your enjoyment. Or you may find that it’s a minor inconvenience at worst. This matters when choosing your TV services because advertising is a common practice. With the exception of the ABC, all free-to-air TV services feature advertising. The same is true for some subscription services – most notably YouTube (the free version) and Foxtel. So you need to figure out just how much advertising is too much, and what you’re willing to pay to avoid it.

Availability

This matters for all TV services. If you live in an area that does not receive digital TV broadcasts, then sadly they are not an option. However, you can access their catch-up services online – though this is dependent on your internet connection. If you have a slow internet connection or a tight data cap, you may find that online streaming becomes a little frustrating. Of course, you always have the option of getting a cable TV subscription, but this depends on whether or not you have a cable service active in your area. Failing that, you can upgrade your internet connection, or choose to go with a satellite installation for satellite TV. And if you rely on your smartphone or tablet for your TV fix, this is highly dependent on the availability of either WiFi or the positioning of mobile phone towers. So before you commit to any paid service, or decide to rely on free options, it’s a good idea to look at what you have available in your area.

Reliability

With TV, consistency is key. There are few things more frustrating when watching your favourite show or movie than having it repeatedly interrupted. From a technical perspective, this can be due to a number of issues. These include experiencing bad reception that interferes with TV broadcast signals and satellite connections – something you have very little control over.

For streaming, slow or intermittent connections can cause your viewing service to pause or buffer or may result in a low resolution. This is true for both wired and mobile connections, although if you have a high-speed tier on the NBN this is less likely to occur. Similarly, going over a data cap can cause your broadband provider to throttle your connection speed, or drop out entirely. With cable TV, reliability can be interrupted if there is an issue with the cable itself, the set-top box, or the broadcaster.

How to Bundle your TV Subscriptions and Save

Chances are that, if you’re considering a TV subscription or want to use a catch-up service, you’re going to want broadband internet to access it. Of course, you won’t just be using broadband or your mobile plan to watch TV. You’ll want these services to make life easier, with high-quality calls over broadband, the convenience of messaging services, and the ability to keep in touch wherever you are.

That’s why the idea of bundling a service makes sense. And with TV in Australia, you can find services that mix and match online accessibility with entertainment. For years, many providers have pulled together packages that include phone line rentals with internet access, mobile plans and even TV subscriptions. Some broadband providers like Dodo would also throw in laptops, mobile phones and modems into the mix. Now that streaming services are more popular than ever, you can find deals that offer access, or even unmetered usage for certain services – and you can save a bit of cash by doing so!

This is where our interactive TV provider bundle comparison page comes in handy. Instead of wading through the profuse and often confusing terms of service documents out there – where the specific details of the available plans and bundles are listed – you can get an overview that exactly matches your needs, all on one page.

To get started, just select the kind of bundle you’re looking for – we’d suggest broadband with a TV subscription to start. Then pick the type of service that you have available to you – NBN, ADSL or cable – as well as the amount of data you want per month. Here we recommend unlimited to make the most of your preferred streaming services, but your needs may vary. Choose a monthly maximum price, then hit the search button.

The result? You’ll instantly get a list of providers, bundle plans and details on what’s included, as well as details on the minimum costs – not to mention all the links to provider websites to get more information from the source.

Popular TV Bundles

The best way to judge value is through first-hand experience. And luckily, there’s a bundle for almost every viewing taste and monthly budget. Whether you want nothing but reality TV or the broadest range of content available in the country, you’ll find a service that meets your needs. So it makes sense to try and find one that also saves you money.

With this in mind, here’s a quick selection of the kinds of bundles you can expect to see. All you need to do is pick the viewing choice that’s the right fit for you!

Broadband and Subscription

This is an ideal option if you have a family that likes to get online but also enjoys watching TV together on a regular basis. Essentially, the provider will cover the cost of your TV subscription. This is usually for the length of your contract. Internet provider, Dodo, has pioneered this bundle and continues to offer Fetch TV as part of its broadband services. Fetch TV can often be found in broadband packs from Primus, iiNet, Optus, and more recently from Aussie Broadband. In some cases — such as with Foxtel — the provider may also be responsible for delivering the streaming service, leveraging its infrastructure to bring cable internet to its customers.

Broadband and Unmetered Access

While more of a perk than a bundle, this option lets you stream content as much as you like without worrying about the data used. This is a great option if you’re using a capped data plan to keep costs down but still want to indulge in the occasional binge. For example, iiNet treats ABC iView as unmetered for all customers. Again, sometimes the service provider and the content provider are the same. For example, Foxtel does not count the data used while watching Foxtel using the Foxtel Go App over their broadband, and Telstra do not meter the data used to watch Foxtel from Telstra or BigPond Movies.

Mobile and Subscription

This is something of a rarity. Put simply, your mobile phone provider gives you a plan which includes access to a subscription service for a certain period. The largest telco in the country, Telstra used to offer a plan that included six months subscription to Stan, Netflix, and Presto (remember Presto?) before Netflix stopped offering bundle support, and Presto disappeared. Today, Telstra offers a range of sports-related content via dedicated apps to its mobile customers.

Mobile and Unmetered Access

This is a more popular choice for most mobile providers. Like with unmetered broadband access, you can watch what you want from certain providers without the data counting towards your monthly total. This matters more on a mobile plan, as there are few plans available that offer unlimited data. Mentioned above, the sports content available through Telstra is also unmetered. Telstra also offers unmetered streaming of Foxtel Now content on certain plans. At the time of writing, the only other mobile provider that offers unmetered data on streaming services is Optus, which excludes ABC iview, Netflix and Stan from your metered data.

Looking for Something Different?

When it comes to TV, everyone has their own set of preferences and wants as to what they want to watch and how they want to watch it.

Streaming & Pay TV FAQs

Can I stream any of these TV services for free?

Almost all of the streaming services offer some kind of free trial period – usually a free month (as with Netflix and Stan) or a couple of weeks (Foxtel Now). There’s no set introductory offer for pay-as-you-view services like Google Play Movies or iTunes – but those do constantly offer titles to rent either very cheaply or for free. If you want something completely free, though, YouTube is your best bet – supported by frequent ads – or DocPlay’s rotating selection of free-streaming titles.

How fast does my Internet have to be to stream TV?

While you’ll need a reliable broadband service that doesn’t suffer from dropouts, thanks to the latest streaming tech it’s possible to get a great quality HD picture even on a fairly slow ADSL connection. If you still run into buffering, there’s always the option to download the show or movie to watch later, something offered by many services including Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime, as well as iTunes.

Is there a long-term contract for any of these TV services?

The good news is that no, you generally won’t have to agree to any contract at all to enjoy TV via any of the above services. Possible exceptions are Foxtel (though it’s almost always available on a no-contract basis) and Fetch TV (there’s no contract for the Fetch service, but the ISP plan you get Fetch bundled with may be subject to a contract). But if you’re using Netflix, Amazon Prime, Stan, iTunes, Google Play Movies, hayu, Foxtel Now, Bigpond Movies and more, you can choose to subscribe just a month at a time if you like, with no penalty for cancelling.
