7Plus: Chuck out the TV guide and watch Channel Seven on your own time

From Home and Away to House Rules, stream all your favourite Channel Seven TV shows at home or on the go.

7PLUS

7PLUS Quick facts

What is 7Plus? An online streaming service for catching up on Channel Seven TV shows whenever and wherever you want.

Where can I watch 7Plus? 7Plus has apps for mobile devices, set-top boxes like Apple TV and Fetch, smart TVs and gaming consoles.

Does 7Plus cost anything? No, but it can use up quite a bit of Internet data, so be sure you've got a large enough cap to support it.

As the highest-rated television network in Australia, Channel Seven is doing quite well for itself. Since 2007, the network has consistently outperformed every other major channel across the country, becoming the first network to win all 40 weeks in a single ratings season. Seven also beat its competitors to the punch when it launched 7HD, the first new commercial free-to-air channel in Australia since 1988. This sparked dramatic changes throughout the TV industry, leading to a wave of new channels across all the networks and giving Aussies far more entertainment options when sitting down for a night in.

With so many channels on offer, scheduling your evening's viewing can be a nightmare. This is where 7Plus comes in. The combination streaming and catch-up TV service lets you watch the latest episodes and even full seasons of shows from across the entire Seven network, all online and on your own time. And with support for a wide range of modern devices, including phones and tablets, you can take your favourite Seven shows with you wherever you go.

What can I watch on 7Plus?

With 7Plus, you can stream every Seven network channel live to compatible devices. Whether it's a hot new episode of House Rules or an AFL semi-finals decider, you can watch it online the same time it airs on TV.

Sometimes life gets in the way of live TV, though, and that's what 7Plus's catch-up service is for. As soon as most programs finish airing on TV, they become available to stream on-demand through 7Plus, allowing you to watch them at your own pace. Certain programs won't make it to catch-up due to licensing restrictions, but for those that do, episodes will remain online for between 7 and 28 days before being removed from the service.

Some of the shows currently available on 7Plus include the following:

  • All Saints
  • Always Greener
  • American Pickers
  • The Blacklist
  • My Kitchen Rules
  • Modern Family
  • Home and Away
  • Packed to the Rafters
  • The Resident

In addition to regular Seven network shows, 7Plus features a variety of exclusive content not shown on TV. Other Space, Sin City Saints and the British version of My Kitchen Rules are some of the shows only available online through 7Plus.

What limits should I be aware of?

One thing that doesn't change between regular TV and 7Plus is advertising. When you stream Seven's channels live, you'll see all the same commercials you would see if you were watching on TV. When you stream shows on-demand, 7Plus replaces all the commercial breaks with its own unskippable advertisements to prevent you from simply fast-forwarding through them.

The last thing you'll want to keep in mind is that 7Plus is available in Australia only. If you travel overseas, you'll receive an error message if you try to access 7Plus content.

What devices are compatible with 7Plus? 

From smartphones to Smart TVs, 7Plus supports a wide range of modern devices.

The 7Plus website offers the simplest way to watch 7Plus content. To stream through the website, you'll need a PC running Windows XP SP2 or later, a Mac running OS X or a Linux computer. You'll also need the latest version of Adobe Flash player and one of the following compatible web browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer 11 or Safari.

Watching 7Plus content on the go is just as easy. If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch device running iOS 10.1 or later, you simply need to download the iOS 7Plus app from the App Store. If you've got yourself an Android device, the Android 7Plus app is compatible with all smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or later.

If you're looking to stream 7Plus to your TV, you have plenty of options available. Fetch TV, Telstra TV, select Samsung Smart TVs and fourth-generation or later Apple TV devices all support 7Plus through dedicated apps, downloadable through their respective app stores. Similarly, the PlayStation 4 gaming console has its own version of the 7Plus app for streaming 7Plus content. You can also stream 7Plus to your Chromecast device using the mobile app on iOS.

How much data does 7Plus use? 

Like all online activity, streaming through 7Plus counts against your Internet service's monthly data limit. How much data 7Plus will use depends on the length of the show you're streaming and the video quality you're watching it in.

For smooth video playback, Seven recommends an Internet connection of 3Mbps or faster. On average, this will work out at roughly 500MB of data used per 22-minute TV episode and approximately 945MB per 42-minute episode.

    Can I ‘earmark’ shows that I like? There does not seem to be a “favourite” option.

      Hi Catriona,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      7Plus has this Continue Watching feature. It is a list of shows that you have partially watched. If you are signed into 7plus, these shows will be displayed in the ‘Continue Watching’ shelf on the home page so you can easily pick up where you left off. You may suggest features on 7Plus by going to their FAQ page.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      If the app is just asking you to log in, you may do so and use the service like before. Please note that streaming on 7Plus does not cost anything but it can use up quite a bit of your Internet data. If you need further assistance on this matter please visit 7plus support page.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,

      Hi Zoe,

      Thanks for getting in touch! We are not for sure if 7 Plus will put all episodes of the Family back. It would be best to get in contact with them directly to obtain this information. Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Best,

      JohnFebruary 27, 2019Staff

      Hi Gail,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      You may need to contact Fetch TV directly to customize your box to include 7Plus. Though it should be automatic, there may be something in the settings that is preventing this from showing. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

    Why does this chop off the end of the show?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JohnNovember 20, 2018Staff

      Hi Radi,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Since 7Plus is a streaming service offered to users and you are experiencing technical issues prior to the show ending, you may need to contact 7plus directly to have this checked and corrected. Prior to that, if you are using the app, you may try uninstall and install it to check if that fixes the issue. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

      Hi Tracy,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      You can try uninstalling and reinstalling the 7plus app to force update it. You may also want to check the internet connection of your PS4. If all else fails, you can directly contact 7plus by going to their website.

      Hi Cryzy,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      If you are referring to 7Plus, you can do basic troubleshooting steps on your device. Try to relaunch 7Plus on your device or restart your device to refresh the contents. Also, try to check if the internet is working fine and has good speed and if the other apps are working fine also. You may contact the manufacturer of your device for technical assistance.

      Best regards,
      Rench

      Hi Flu,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Basically, Plus7 is an online extension of Channel Seven, which is a free-to-air television network. This means that there is no cost to access hours of great content online. Through any internet browser, including internet explorer, safari, google chrome or firefox. Simply head over to the website to begin browsing through the list of available programs. Before moving further, you would need to check first the compatible devices listed on this page.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold
