Australia’s other big-ticket streaming service has been attracting hundreds of thousands of customers for years now — so does streaming service Stan have what it takes to keep you coming back for more?
For starters, Stan really does offer a Netflix-like experience. Its interface is great and the service is priced reasonably at $9.99/month for the Basic (SD only) plan. In addition, considering the fact that Stan is a comparatively new video streaming service, its movie and television show offerings are quite impressive.
However, keeping in mind that Netflix is blitzing the Australian market with its huge library of movies and TV shows, Stan’s library is one area which needs substantial improvement. To help you in your decision making, we’ll share some more information about some of Stan’s best features!
Video Quality Options — Control the Image Quality of Your Stream
Unlike other Australian video streaming services out there, Stan offers users the option to select the image quality for their stream by clicking on the cog icon available at the bottom of the player’s window. You can then either use the automatic settings, which will tailor the image quality of your stream according to the quality of your internet connection, or simply choose between the high definition (HD) or the standard definition (SD) options (and 4K if you’re on the Premium Plan with a device that supports the format).
Children also use video streaming services to watch their favourite content, but one important feature of Stan’s that some other services are lacking, is the ability to control what they have access to. After all, no one wants their kids to be subjected to inappropriate content. Stan gives parents the ability to restrict the shows and movies their children are allowed to watch.
