Reality television has taken the world by storm and it’s impossible to deny just how addictive watching these shows can get. If you’ve already been bitten by the reality TV bug, then you should know by now that hayu is your one-stop destination to satisfy your cravings for the juiciest and craziest reality shows on TV.
From Keeping Up With the Kardashians (now on their 15th season!) to the Real Housewives franchise, as well as other riveting documentaries such as Citizen Rose and Deadly Power, hayu’s got you covered with the latest and hottest reality shows that have ever graced television — all available for you to stream wherever you are and whenever you want.
So how can you get started on streaming your favorite reality shows? Here’s how you can access hayu on your devices at home — given that you’ve already signed up and subscribed to their services!
If you’re watching on your desktop or laptop, you can access your favorite shows simply by going to hayu’s website — pretty similar to how it is with Netflix as well. hayu works best using a Chrome browser but is unfortunately not supported by Firefox just yet. You also have to make sure that your browser allows a flash plugin, as well as a Silverlight plugin. To start watching, all you need to do is sign in with your credentials and start streaming straight from your browser!
Also make sure that your Mac is running OSX 10.10 or above, and that your Windows is running 8.1 or above in order to access hayu.
Looking to watch shows on hayu while you’re on the go? Just download the hayu app via the App Store for iOS devices (e.g., iPhone, iPad) and through the Google Play Store for Android devices (e.g., Samsung, Pixel). Simply login with your account to start streaming whenever and wherever — and as a bonus, you can even download up to 25 episodes to watch offline as well!
Do take note that hayu works best with Apple devices running iOS10 or above. If you’re still on iOS9, chances are you may still be able to use the app but will not see any updates from hayu in the future.
For Android users, hayu has released a “‘lite”’ version of the app for lower spec Android devices. This version will be automatically downloaded on selected devices, and will still give you the same shows and episodes as the full version of their app but with the right reliability and responsiveness of your specific Android device.
The full version of the app will work best with Android devices running 4.4 operating system and above. One thing Android users have to be reminded of is that not all devices are created the same, even though they run on the same 4.4 OS, especially when it comes to streaming quality. Therefore, the most recent higher end models like the Samsung Galaxy S would be better in handling high quality streaming for videos compared to their more affordable counterparts.
Good news for Apple TV users, hayu is now available for the newer 4th generation model of Apple TV. The downside is, you won’t see hayu popping up anywhere on your Apple TV if you still have the 2nd or 3rd generation models.
You can also watch the latest episodes of your favorite shows on your Fetch devices, including the Fetch Mini and Fetch Mighty. Simply enter your login credentials into the app and off you go binge-watching the latest season of Real Housewives.
Telstra TV also gives you access to hayu, alongside other big-league streaming providers such as Stan, BigPond Movies, Netflix and Foxtel Now. And as a bonus for new hayu subscribers, you can also get three3 months unlimited access for free upon activation of your Telstra TV.
If you’re looking for more ways to watch your beloved favorite shows on the big screen, you can also use Chromecast. The hayu app can support streaming of content via Chromecast or Airplay onto your TV.
Amazon Fire TV/Amazon Kindle Fire
With the official launch of Amazon Prime in Australia, you can now also watch hayu via Amazon Fire TV and Kindle Fire. Just make sure to use your Amazon Channels details to download the hayu app, and then proceed to enter your hayu login details to start watching.
