hayu launched in Australia way back on 22 March 2016, having already established itself as one of the premiere providers of on-demand reality TV in the UK and Ireland. While its launch line-up of 127 shows and over 3,000 episodes was undoubtedly impressive, the streaming service has only grown in the years since and now boasts over 200 different series with even more juicy episodes to binge-watch. You can check whether your favourite show is included in that extensive library by heading over to our full list of content available on hayu in Australia.
On the other hand, maybe you're curious about how the Aussie library stacks up against those of the UK and Ireland? After all, it's quite common in this age of online streaming for services to offer different content in different countries thanks to the unpredictability of licensing viewing rights on a global scale. Just look at the significant disparity between Netflix in the US and Netflix in the rest of the world, for example.
However, hayu has managed to keep its selection of reality TV relatively consistent across territories, providing access to many of the same shows across Australia, Ireland and the UK. This gives hayu a significant leg up over the competition, as no other streaming service currently offers identical content across territories.
