The streaming revolution that’s changed TV forever

It was one of the worst-kept secrets online for a good few years. And most of those who were in on it would have seen the writing on the wall long before it officially arrived in Australia – on-demand streaming TV was going to change the way we watched. Using some simple tricks to make companies like Netflix and Hulu think they were talking to someone in the US, it had become possible to stream shows and movies from those services in the US; and soon hundreds of thousands of Australians were in on it. But it was only when local streaming service Stan launched, closely followed by the official launch of Netflix, that masses of Australians got to try on-demand streaming for themselves. Australia’s always been a country that adopts new technology quickly. And streaming video quickly became the TV platform of choice for millions of people.

It’s easy to see why. A low monthly flat fee gives you access to stream thousands of TV shows and movies in high definition. There are no ad breaks, no on-screen watermarks or advertising, no censorship and no waiting until next week for another episode. The choice is placed directly in the hands of viewers, and they’ve been loving it. And with Netflix and Stan producing their own exclusive content, streaming services are turning into the new mainstream TV channels. But now, you’re the one in charge.

Netflix user interface

Netflix: From video library to global powerhouse

The granddaddy of them all, some would say, is Netflix. But to be fair, that’s not entirely true. Netflix wasn’t the first on-demand streaming video service on the planet. However, their popularity is due to the way they tweaked, adjusted and refined the very model of a streaming service. A model most of their competitors have since followed.

Originally a video library service dealing in physical DVDs sent out to renters by mail (a model Quickflix later emulated here in Australia), Netflix decided to offer extra convenience to its customers. The company allowed them to watch streaming versions of some of the things they were hiring. In other words, users had instant access to their rentals rather than having to wait for the postman. This feature was extremely well-received by users. Hence, the service grew to eclipse the disc rental side of the business. And as word of mouth spread, Netflix’s “instant access” became the most popular element of Netflix’s business. Far from fighting it, they expanded it – making sure they had apps for their service on every imaginable platform. And, in recent years, expanding to service almost every country on the planet.

Netflix’s reputation for content variety, picture quality and reliability is only enhanced by its growing catalogue of “Netflix Original” productions, which are every bit the equal of the best of HBO or Showtime. Just in November 2017, subscribers can tune in to see The Punisher Season 1, Lady Dynamite Season 2, the final season of Longmire, and the brand new series She’s Gotta Have It.

Stan: More than just an Australian Netflix

Actually beating Netflix to launch in Australia by a few months, Stan had been in development for a long time before receiving its name and distinctive blue logo. Side note: nobody’s quite sure why it’s named Stan! Part of a joint venture between newspaper publisher Fairfax (The Age, SMH amongst many others) and Nine Entertainment, Stan started off modestly, with a flat $10 monthly fee almost issuing a challenge to Netflix to match the price (which technically, they didn’t).
Stan’s strength lies in its depth of content, with the company securing deals with major international studios and distributors. These range from premium US cable TV (such as their deal with Showtime) to mainstream entertainment through the likes of Warner Brothers. Almost every genre has a place in the sizable library of content on Stan. Whether we’re talking about binge-worthy drama series or acclaimed world cinema films. Stan also pioneered “fast tracking” new shows as they air in the US – most notably with the latest Showtime content.
In some ways, that makes Stan seem even more like a disruptive TV station than Netflix does. Their customers clearly like what they’re seeing, with the subscriber count continuing to rise and apps for the service appearing on more platforms. In November 2017, Stan subscribers can fast-track Will & Grace, SMILF, The Girlfriend Experience, and Good Behaviour, among other titles. Original series No Activity is also back with Season 2. Plus, all three seasons of cult series Veronica Mars drop on Stan November 17.

Foxtel Now: Where Live TV and streaming meet

Though it’s been around for some years now – pre-dating the other streaming services – Foxtel Now, formerly Foxtel Play, is actually more of a hybrid between a multi-channel streaming version of the full Foxtel service and an on-demand streaming model. At its core, though, it’s a service that gives you direct streaming access to live Foxtel channels as they air. In other words, you can access Foxtel without actually having it physically installed.

On top of that, Foxtel Now offers on-demand access to a huge range of Foxtel movies and shows. The list includes prize HBO content such as Game of Thrones and Westworld. Moreover, you get access to other popular shows, some exclusive to Foxtel. In November 2017, for instance, subscribers can stream new episodes of Shameless, The Exorcist,  The Walking Dead, and Mr. Robot. All in all, the service is kind of a bridge between conventional scheduled TV and the new age of on-demand entertainment.

hayu: All the reality TV you can handle

Proving there’s a streaming niche for all types of content, hayu decided to focus on reality TV. The platform offers thousands of episodes to stream for a low monthly fee, catering to a particular type of consumer. If you love the Real Housewives franchise, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Below Deck, and other similarly addictive reality series, hayu is the place for you. The streaming service is offering some episodes the same day as the US, making it easy for fans to keep up with their shows.
Social is a big component for the platform. You can connect with your favourite stars via social media directly through hayu, since all their profiles are linked in the shows’ pages. Moreover, you can also share “Snippets” from recent episodes that were particularly funny or compelling. And in the “Stories” section you get high-quality content featuring popular reality stars – from listicles to show recommendations and quizzes.
hayu is available on a variety of devices, including PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Chromecast, Fetch TV, Telstra TV, and Apple TV. You can register up to five devices and watch on one at the time. Episodes are available for download, so you can get them while on Wi-Fi and then enjoy them on the go without burning your mobile data allowance. All for only $5.99/month; with 30 days free.

BigPond Movies: Rent/buy recent blockbusters

If you’re looking for the latest movie releases, BigPond should be your go-to destination. The platform offers all the popular recent titles you’ve missed in the cinema, allowing you to rent/buy them and enjoy at your leisure. With an amazing content library, BigPond ensures you’ll always have something to watch – from blockbuster movies to addictive TV to acclaimed classic films you may want to revisit.

Unlike Netflix or Stan, BigPond Movies is a pay-as-you-go service. You can rent movies or buy movies and TV shows to watch again and again. You only pay for the titles you want to watch, so there will be no monthly surprises on your bank statement. Since there’s no subscription fee, you control what you spend and when you spend it. Besides recent releases, the platform is also offering older titles you might have missed, so there’s basically zero chance you’ll ever run out of cool content to watch.

You can get BigPond Movies on PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Telstra TV, and selected smart TVs. All you have to do is sign up, select your title, and start watching. Buying new release movies generally costs around $18-$20. Or, you can rent some of those movies for about $6. Older movies can be around $8-$15 to buy and $4 to rent. Recent titles on BigPond Movies include Atomic Blonde, The Big Sick, Spiderman: Homecoming, A Monster Calls, Wonder Woman, and more!

Ozflix: Watch Aussie movies at your leisure

Ozflix is a movie streaming service like no other in one major aspect – it only hosts Aussie films. The platform’s objective is to make local movies accessible to both Australian and international audiences. So much so that they’re main goal is to source ‘Every Aussie Movie. Ever.’ Another thing that differentiates Ozflix from the competition is that once a movie is on Ozflix, it’s there forever. It doesn’t come with an expiration date.
You can access Ozflix on up to five devices and you can only watch on one device at a time. For now, the service is compatible with PCs/Macs and mobile devices. You can also use Chromecast to stream content to the big screen. You don’t have to pay a monthly subscription – you only pay for the titles you want to buy or rent.
Ozflix has an impressive selection of Aussie movies, one that’s growing every day. You can choose between blockbusters like Mad Max: Fury Road and Muriel’s Wedding to indie flicks, romantic comedies, and oldies but goldies. There are several categories worth exploring on Ozflix. Plus, Othe platform is producing original content in the form of movie reviews and interviews.

DocPlay: Huge selection of docos for a curious mind

Another niche streaming service catering to a specific need, DocPlay hosts a plethora of documentaries to keep you busy. If you’re a fan of the genre, you’ll find plenty of popular titles here to gauge your interest. Including well-known docos like Citizenfour, Searching for Sugar Man, Blackfish, and Bowling for Columbine. And the best part? The service offers a selection of titles for free.

With DocPlay, you can choose between two plans – Free and Premium. The Free plan only entails you create an account on the platform. Once that’s done, you can watch a limited selection of titles in SD for free, with ads. A Premium plan costs $6.95/month or $69.50/year. It eliminates ads, offers titles in HD, and grants you access to the full DocPlay catalogue. There’s a one month free trial you can take advantage of to test drive the service before making a commitment.

As for devices, you can watch on PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Telstra TV, Apple TV, all Sony Android TVs and other Android TV devices. You can also use Chromecast to stream to your big screen TV. If you love documentaries, this is the service for you.

Amazon Prime Video: stream acclaimed TV shows for a low monthly fee

Although still in its early stages, Amazon Prime Video offers a solid selection of TV shows, including some original content. And since it’s still building its library, the service is available for only US$2.99/month for the first six months. Once those six months are up, you will pay US$5.99/month. Shows available include Mozart in the Jungle, American Gods, The Tick, The Grand Tour, and The Man in the High Castle.
Amazon Prime Video is available on a variety of devices, making it easy for users to stream content whenever they want. You can watch on PCs/Macs, mobile devices, PS4, PS3, LG and Samsung smart TVs, as well as Android TV by Sony. You can also download all movies and TV shows for offline viewing on mobile devices.
As with most streaming services, your main concern will probably be whether or not they have your favourite shows. And if you’re a fan of Amazon original series, access to this streaming service is a bargain, as it comes at $1/week for the first six months. Moreover, the platform’s library is growing, so Aussies will likely get access to more and more titles as time goes by.

iTunes: buy/rent titles on a pay-as-you go basis

If you have an iPhone, you’re probably already familiar with iTunes. The service allows you to enjoy the music, movies and TV shows you already have — and shop for the ones you want to get. It’s also home to Apple Music, with an enormous catalogue of 40 million songs, curated playlists, Beats 1 radio and more.

With thousands of movies and TV shows to choose from, there’s always something great to watch on iTunes. You pay as you go for the titles you want. And if you watch on Apple TV 4K, you’ll be able to enjoy a tremendous selection of your favourite content in 4K HDR. Just tap to play, or even download if you’re going somewhere you won’t have Wi-Fi. iTunes is also available on PCs/Macs, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Thanks to iCloud, the movies and TV shows you buy from the iTunes Store automatically appear on all your devices. As for content, you can find anything from the newest blockbusters to classic series. However, keep in mind that purchasing these movies/TV shows can get pricey, especially if you’re buying an entire season of your favourite show. That’s fine if you only watch series occasionally. If you’re an avid binge-watcher, however, you might be better off with a subscription-based service.

Dendy Direct: see what’s new, express from the cinema

Want access to fresh movies titles, direct from the cinema? Dendy Direct offers a pretty impressive catalogue. The service works on a pay-as-you-go basis – you only purchase the titles you want instead of paying for a monthly subscription. The platform puts together weekly collections handpicked by film lovers to introduce you to new titles and remind you of old favourites. See what guest curators have chosen or have a look at what Dendy loves this week.
With fresh new releases alongside award-winning dramas, Dendy Direct presents film lovers with a cinematic treasure trove for every kind of night in. You can rent/buy both movies and TV shows. Also, with Dendy Marquee, you can watch movies literally straight from the cinema. Titles are made available approximately one week after they hit theaters. In this case, we’re mainly referring to independent movies, Dendy’s specialty. These cost $19.95 each to watch.
You can use Dendy Direct on your PC or Mac (on a desktop or a laptop), tablets and smartphones (using iOS or Android). Offline viewing is available. You can also stream from your devices to your TV using Airplay or Chromecast. Register up to five devices and watch on one at a time. All in all, a pretty handy service for when you’re looking to watch a recent release.

Google Play: a convenient way to purchase movies and TV shows

Similar to iTunes, Google Play offers access to tons of TV shows and movies, this time for all users. You pay as you go, only for the titles you want. However, as with iTunes, purchasing an entire season of a series can be pricey. The service works on PCs/Macs, all smartphones and tablets, Android TV. You can also use Chromecast to stream your content to the big screen. You will need to download the Google Play Movies & TV app to your desired device.

Users can download Google Play Movies and TV shows onto Android and iOS devices or Chromebook, so they can watch without a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection. Content varies from fresh blockbusters and series to more classic picks, so there’s a good chance you’ll find tons of things to watch. For shows, you can buy a single episode or get a Season Pass. If you go for the second option, all episodes will be delivered to you once they become available.

All in all, Google Play is great if you only watch TV shows and movies from time to time. If you binge a lot, a subscription-based streaming service might be a better option.

YouTube Red: unlock original content and get rid of ads

YouTube Red comes with several advantages for those willing to pay a monthly subscription. First off, you get access to original content by YouTube creators – mainly movies and TV series. Next, you get to enjoy music ad-free, without interruptions. You can play music and videos on mobile even when you’re offline. And finally, your music or video plays uninterrupted in the background, even when you open another app.

A YouTube Red subscription costs $11.99/month. A Google Play Music subscription is included at no extra cost. Your YouTube Red membership does not include access to any content that requires purchase, such as rentals, pay-per-view purchases, or paid channel subscriptions. However, you do get access to exclusive shows and movies from YouTube’s biggest stars.

If you’re an avid YouTube user, investing in a YouTube Red subscription makes sense, if only for the ability to get rid of ads and save videos and songs on your mobile device to watch offline. Plus, YouTube is investing in creating original content as well, which is a nice perk. The platform’s very own show Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television was released recently, a hilarious comedy starring Ryan Hansen and Samira Wiley. You can watch the first two episodes free.

FAQs About Streaming TV

How fast a broadband connection you need for streaming services depends on a few things – firstly, what level of picture quality you’re happy with. If you want to stream 1080p high definition (offered by all the streaming services) you’ll want a connection that’s a little faster than the bare minimums quoted by providers. In general, if you’re able to sustain a speed of around 8 Mbps on a speed test, then you should be good to go for HD. Slower than that, and providers will automatically lower the video quality to match your connection speed. At an absolute minimum, you’ll need a broadband connection capable of 3 Mbps for reliable streaming in standard definition.
Yes. Netflix and Stan both offer the option to download shows to your device so you can enjoy them when you’re out and about. That way you don’t have to bun through your mobile data. However, downloads aren’t available for all titles. You can see which ones you can download after you install the Stan or Netflix mobile apps.
You could substitute the name of any other current TV show or latest-release movie in that question, and the answer would be the same – the all-you-can-eat model for streaming TV is generally based around offering complete seasons of shows some time after they’re aired elsewhere then spent some time as digital purchases. This is largely up to the owners of the shows, rather than the streaming services themselves. There are exceptions, though – such as Stan’s deal with Showtime that gives them fast-tracked first-run episodes hours after they air on TV in the US. As for Game of Thrones, though, you’ll never see it on Netflix – HBO likes to keep their shows to themselves!
