In the year 2018, we are pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to streaming services (especially if you count smaller players like Crackle and Quickflix.) Unfortunately, not every show you watch is available on one single platform. So what do you do?
Streaming platforms are great. They give you the option to binge-watch shows at a time of your choosing and not have to deal with cliffhangers week after week. With that said, there are also drawbacks compared to the free-to-air TV model of old.
For example, Foxtel Now is pretty light on original programming, while Netflix lacks Foxtel's HBO goodies, including Game Of Thrones. Whether you subscribe to Stan, Foxtel Now, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or one of the telco offerings, there are bound to be one or two popular programmes that you simply do not have access to.
We're curious to hear what you do to overcome this problem. Do you pirate the shows that aren't available on your platform of choice? Do you subscribe to multiple services? Do you purchase the shows you can't get on Blu-ray? Or do you just make do with what's available on the one platform? Let us know in the comments!
When Netflix finally flickered to life across screens Australia-wide, everything changed. Suddenly, we had access to movies and TV shows right there on our PCs, tablets and phones. In the intervening years, two competitors have rose to take it on. Stan and Foxtel Now. The battlefield is every couch around Australia, the weapons are Great Content, Aussie Dramas and Sports. What is the best streaming service in Australia and what's right for you?
Will you Netflix and Chill? Foxtel Now and Slow Down? ...Stan and Lounge Around? Let's find out.
