Posted: 27 October 2021 11:25 am

New customers can test Foxtel's Flash with a 14-day free trial. Here's how to sign up.

A shiny new streaming service is available in Australia – and this time around, it's focused exclusively on news.

Foxtel's Flash news app is a standalone online service that brings you content from more than 20 sources of local, world, sport and business news. That way, you can always be on top of the subjects that matter to you.

The service enables you to watch channels live or catch up with shows and documentaries on demand. You can personalise your interests so that you get snippets of news relevant to you, browse news by categories and have all the information you need at your fingertips.

If that sounds appealing, the platform offers new users a 14-day free trial, so you can give it a spin without making a dent in your credit card.

How do I get the Flash free trial?

Signing up to the Flash free trial is fast and easy. If you're already using BINGE or Kayo Sports, you'll be familiar with the entire process. Flash was put together by Streamotion, Foxtel's sister company, also responsible for BINGE and Kayo.

In fact, if you are a current or previous subscriber to either of those 2 services, start by selecting the "Sign In" button from the top right of the screen. Then, use your Kayo or BINGE login details to sign up for Flash.

Otherwise, follow these steps:

1. Head to the Flash website and click on the big "New to Flash? Stream for free" button.

2. The service only offers 1 subscription plan, so click the "Continue" button. If you have a voucher or promo code, click on the "Got a voucher?" button and follow the on-screen prompts to redeem it.

3. Enter your personal details to create a Streamotion account. You will then be able to use it to access BINGE and Kayo Sports as well.

4. You'll be sent a verification code to the mobile number you provided. Enter it where indicated on the web page to continue.

4. Next, enter your payment details. You won't be billed until your free trial is up. Flash accepts major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and Amex.

5. Your account is now active! You can take some time to set up your profile or you can start streaming straight away.

You can watch news on your laptop or download the Flash app to your preferred device and log in there. Flash is compatible with iOS and Android phones and tablets as well as Apple TV, Telstra TV and Chromecast.

Stream Kayo Sports for 14 days FREE and no lock-in contract

Take Kayo Sports' Basic or Premium plan for a spin and stream over 50 sports live completely free for 14 days.

Stream BINGE for 14-days FREE and no lock-in contract

Test out Binge's Basic, Standard or Premium plan and stream 10,000+ hours of shows and movies on demand.

What does the Flash free trial give you access to?

There are no restrictions with the 14-day Flash free trial. For 2 weeks, you can enjoy all the news content you can handle, live or on demand. You can watch on 1 device at a time and in HD quality on any compatible device.

Flash brings users more than 20 sources of news from all over the world. The platform aims to cater to your interests and enable you to get different perspectives on the same topic. Some of the news sources available on Flash include Al Jazeera, BBC World News, CNN International, Ausbiz, FOX News, Bloomberg TV, CNBC, France 24, Sky News Australia and more.

The service has a clean, user-friendly interface, similar to BINGE. Furthermore, discovering news stories is a breeze. You can browse by categories (politics, tech etc.), watch channels live and form FlashLists of content you want to check out later.

You can also create a FlashPoint hub for a big story you're interested in, which brings together all content from across the services relating to that story for easy access.

Is there a catch to the Flash free trial?

Not really. For 2 weeks, you can take advantage of everything that Flash has to offer for free with no strings attached.

If you don't enjoy the service, you need to remember to cancel your subscription before the 2 weeks are up. You might want to set a reminder or alarm for the 13th day of your free trial so you're not caught by surprise with a charge on your credit card. To cancel Flash, simply go to "My Account – Cancel Subscription".

Loving Flash? Then your card will be billed once the 14-day free trial expires as well as every month after that. Subscriptions to Flash cost $8 per month. There are no contracts involved, so you can cancel your subscription anytime.

Other than that, there might be data consumption costs to consider. Streaming Flash burns from 0.3GB to 0.5GB per hour in SD and from 1.5GB to 3.25GB per hour in HD. Depending on your broadband or mobile data plan, you might want to keep an eye on your usage to avoid burning through your allowance too quickly. Flash content cannot be downloaded for offline viewing.
