hayu Review – Reality TV Gets Serious!

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. The problem for Australian reality fans up until now has been actually finding these shows — some are buried in late-night TV listings, some are only available on Foxtel, and some are never seen here at all. hayu changed all that, with a streaming service dedicated only to reality TV, top to bottom, up to date and on demand.
