Foxtel Really Wants You To Pay For Game Of Thrones

With Netflix kicking down the door for affordable streaming prices in Australia, Foxtel is more desperate to woo new customers than ever.

However, whether you’ll actually get to watch them depends on the entertainment services you subscribe to. With that in mind, here are five of the most popular shows in Australia — as voted by our readers — along with the only places you can (legally) access them.


Australians Mostly Pay For TV To Watch Sport

With Netflix, Stan and Presto Entertainment all set to launch in the early part of 2015, there’s a lot of focus on which shows will be available on each service.
