What's on TV Sydney

There is arguably no better way to unwind after a long day at work than in front of the television. You can just curl up on the couch after a hard day at the office post 7.00 pm. and watch your favourite shows. You can also keep up with the latest news, sports, and entertainment stories.

In Sydney, there is a broad range of television to pick from. There are also in-demand streaming services that provide even more options for binge-watching movies and series. All you have to do now is unwind, relax, and breathe. Here, we’ll tell you all there is to know about the best TV airing and streaming in Sydney.

What are the best shows on TV in Sydney?

It may sound trivial, but there were just five channels to choose from not long ago. Today, free-to-air and paid television have merged to provide viewers with an abundance of entertainment options. The best part is that television and programming have progressed to the point that each family member now gets their own channel.

Entertainment

A short scan of the Sydney TV guide reveals a dedicated cartoon channel for children, the SBS food channel for the family chef, ABC news for the news addict, a HD SBS world movies channel for the movie buff, as well as sport, shopping, and much more.

Millionaire Hot Seat, Letters and Numbers, Mastermind, and The Chase Australia are some of the most interesting quiz programs available on free television for those who like to test their general knowledge.

News & Reality TV

News plays an essential function when it comes to keeping everyone up to date on current events. With ABC News, Seven News, SBS World News, and Ten’s News First, you’ll never be far from the latest developments and breaking news. Special broadcasts such as America World News Tonight, ABC America World News, and PBS NewsHour are also available.

When it comes to reality television, food and culinary shows are never far behind. Our favourite show is Masterchef Australia, but other shows have established their feet as well. Cook and the Chef is a popular show, as is Mary’s kitchen crush, and some people prefer to watch Escape to the Country on 7two.

Watch Streaming TV Free Trials

For millennials, streaming has become the new free to air. With most entertainment brands jumping onto the streaming bandwagon, the true winner is the viewer. An entire season can now be watched in a single day as the platforms dumps every episode in one go.

Streaming platforms offer many benefits, but the free trial on each platform is perhaps the cherry on the cake. You can check out a platform, watch shows and movies, and then decide if you want to join. Our dedicated team of researchers have offered their advice for the best streaming TV options here.

BINGE

BINGE, Australia’s answer to the current craze of binge-watching, competes with the big boys of streaming. The platform has a huge library of movies and series that are all at your fingertips. Their tie-in with HBO is their selling point. This gives them access to some of the finest entertainment available, like Game of Thrones, Mare of Easttown, and Gossip Girl, among other things. 

Movie lovers may watch new releases such as Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Justice League, Fast and Furious and Harry Potter. All of this is available for free viewing. BINGE’s full library is available with a two-week trial. You might wish to keep it on once the trial period is up.
