A brand new streaming service aimed at giving you all the latest news in one place has arrived in Australia. Flash is the third streaming service from Foxtel’s dynamic streaming company, Streamotion, following in the footsteps of the hugely successful Kayo Sports and BINGE platforms.
Flash is the first of its kind, a streaming service dedicated to everything from politics and breaking news to local and international events from a wide range of global live news sources. This exciting new platform is set to help Australians stay up to date with everything happening around the world at the touch of a button, at home or on the move.
About new streaming service, Flash
The Foxtel group have announced that Flash is available to stream in Australia from October. It will be the first news streaming service in the country featuring over 20 diverse, trusted news sources.
Flash includes news services like Fox News and Sky News, as well as offerings from CNN, BBC, Bloomberg, CNBC, Al Jazeera and more.
Flash CEO, Julian Ogrin, said: “Flash is a game-changer in news media. It will transform the way Australians consume the news that matters to them by bringing together the widest range of local and international live news sources in a single, easy to use, feature-packed service.
“Flash will deliver greater control and more choice, providing access to the latest, breaking live and on demand news sources that Australians want, when they want it and where they want to watch it – at home, at work or on the go.
“Flash is the latest product built on the world-class technology platform that streams our fast growing Kayo Sports and BINGE streaming services to almost two million Australians. It gives us the flexibility to continue to grow our news sources and drive innovation in the way people can consume news.”
Flash Executive Director, Kate de Brito, said: “Flash offers genuine diversity in opinions and perspectives, putting a wide range of trusted news sources into the hands of more Australians.
“At launch, we will have unrivalled access to over 20 news sources – which will grow over time – with the ability to select and curate the views and opinions that matter to you.
“Whether your politics are progressive, in the centre or conservative. Whether you are after business news, or finance, local or world events, weather or sport. And it will be all for just $8 per month with no lock-in contracts.”
How to stream Flash in Australia
Flash offers a 14 day free trial, like Steamotion’s other streaming platforms, Kayo Sports and BINGE.
This will give you total access to all of the channels available on the platform before you consider the monthly payment plan. After your free trial is over, you can check out Flash for only $8 per month after, not bad for those who need to stay on top of current affairs throughout the day, in the office, at home or on the move.
Interestingly, BINGE and Kayo are also available to stream via Telstra (12-month plans) thanks to their partnership with Foxtel and Streamotion. It is highly likely that the service will be offered as part of a Telstra Broadband or Mobile plan further down the line.
