Introducing hayu

Last updated January 28th, 2021

World-famous channel hayu is your one-stop source for everything reality television. The streaming platform launched in Australia in 2016, letting reality TV fans watch their favourite reality shows whenever and wherever they want. The service provides a lot of content. You can stream shows the same day as the US or binge-watch old faves at your leisure. It’s a niche service that entered the competitive streaming market at a very low price – just $6.99/month!

What makes hayu unique?

Firstly, it’s the heavy focus on reality based TV shows. Top shows on hayu include Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Love and Hip-Hop, and instalments from the Real Housewives franchise.

Moreover, the service makes it easy to share moments from your shows on social media thanks to their Snippets section. Here, they offer funny/shocking short clips from various series and allow users to share them directly via the app.

You can also stay on top of everything reality TV via the Stories section. Or even connect with your favourite stars! The cast of each show is listed on the show’s page, with direct links to the stars’ Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages.

It may have come from humble beginnings, but reality TV is big business in the 21st century, with dozens upon dozens of shows — and their spin-offs — loyally followed by millions of fans every week.
