It's hard to make a sweeping statement about a definitive best streaming service in Australia as people sign up to them for different reasons. But the constants are price and content. It's these 2 pillars we've used to bring you our best picks for the month.
Good to know: Finder has partnered with Parrot Analytics to rank the best streaming services in Australia based on the quality of programming and their cost. This means the results are based purely on numbers – no personal bias included.
The Australian Streaming TV Charts, produced by Finder and Parrot Analytics data, provides a definitive insight into the state of the streaming market Down Under each and every month.
Primarily these streaming TV apps are ranked on the value proposition they offer consumers in any given month. As new shows come and go seasonally and in popularity, these charts reflect that change.
So, how does Finder's algorithm define value?
Our analysis begins with Parrot's monthly report on the top 100 most in-demand shows in Australia. This is provided exclusively to Finder in partnership to develop these charts. Its data uses various sources, including social media mentions and official numbers, to generate a popularity metric. It shows how much more demand there is for a show over the average across all shows.
We analyse each show in the list and match it against our internet-leading database of streaming providers to identify where each show can be streamed. We break that down into the number of seasons for a show: how many legacy seasons does it have? Does it have the latest season? Is the latest season new? New being defined as released in the last year or an ongoing series (i.e. a renewed show).
The algorithm primarily rewards a streaming service for having the latest season of a new TV series, but provides a secondary score based on the percentage of legacy seasons it also houses in its catalogue. The total score from this is then amplified by the popularity metric from Parrot. As that metric is different for each show, the higher it is on the top 100 list, the more it's going to contribute.
Finally, for the paid streaming services we weigh the accumulated content score for each service against the cost of entry. Ultimately, this then provides a definitive ranking of which service is offering the best value in any given month.
November 2023 charts
Best TV app November 2023 chart analysis
Let's take a closer look at the top stories to emerge from this month's charts.
In the most hotly contested month since the Australian Streaming TV Charts launched, it was Prime Video that narrowly took top spot. The service saw 33% growth in value score, posting 60 and taking top spot for the first time since December 2022. Although back then in it did so with a value score of 81. The debut of Gen V at 6th in the top 100 most in-demand shows played a big role. While Good Omens, The Wheel of Timeand The Boys all landed in the top 20. The Continental – a John Wick spin-off - had a slow start, coming in at 42, while Deadloch dropped out.
It will be a reasonably happy month for Disney Plus. The service did lose top spot, but was only just pipped and remained a strong second with a value score of 58. The arrival of Loki in the top 5 will be heralded as a big success. Meanwhile Star Wars spin-off Ahsoka stayed in the top 10 and Only Murders in the Building did well.
With a value score of 57 – up 12% - Binge also had a strong month. Our Flag Means Death landed in the top 5 on the back of its latest season. A fourth season of Broken Lizard's comedy series Tacoma FD also made a splash. It was Adventure Time, however, which was the big surprise, taking the number 1 spot in the 100 most in-demand shows of Australia.
If you're looking for the biggest range of shows in the top 100, then Foxtel Now is home to 19% of demand this month. Although, due to its price, it doesn't present great value. It's worth noting that spin-off Adventure Time: Fionna And Cake is the only show released this year to contribute to that figure.
After 9 consecutive weeks at number one, the fall of Paramount Plus continued on from last month. In truth, it held steady with a value score of 52, but with others on the improve, it was only enough for the service to land in fourth spot. In fact, it only had one show in the top 20, and that was Paw Patrol. Most of its big success stories from earlier in 2023 have dropped out of the top 100.
Both Stan and Netflix have both failed to register any meaningful change this month.
It was one of the worst months of the year for new 2023 releases polling in the top 100 most in-demand TV shows of Australia. Only 13 made it, with no new debuts. Potentially a result of the writer's strike.
There wasn't much doing with the free TV services this month. ABC iView managed to hold onto top spot, despite a 38% drop. Possibly because 9Now also went south by 36%.
Rising to second spot with 9% growth was 7Plus. Kitchen Nightmares and When Comes the Heart giving it a little boost.
TV charts market share explained
We've also provided a look at the market share for each month. This purely looks at the number of shows each TV service provider has in the top 100 in any given month relative to the demand of each of those shows.
The TV service in first place would be the app with the biggest percentage of shows based on consumer demand for that month. But it does not take into account the price of accessing those shows.
Note: Each month's chart reflects the previous month's data. So, April 2023 charts reflect data collected from 1–31 March.
Best streaming service for top TV shows
Foxtel Now keeps its stranglehold at the top of category with 28 shows in the top 100.
BINGE also remains unmoved, still only being behind Foxtel.
Paramount Plus has made its podium debut in this category. It has been able to knock off Netflix thanks to some of its new releases like Yellowjackets and longstanding favourites such as NCIS.
Disney Plus came in at 4th place not far off Paramount Plus. However, the drop off to 5th was substantial with Netflix, Stan and Prime Video grouped closely together.
Has the second highest ranked in-demand show in Succession
Has second highest number of in-demand shows (32)
We used data from Parrot Analytics' enterprise audience analytics dataset, measuring audience demand for the top 100 TV shows in Australia. This is gathered from sources such as photo-sharing sites, fan and critic rating sites, social media, downloading/streaming sites, social video sites, wikis and informational and blogging sites.
We then combined this data with Finder's own streaming databases that measure the number of TV shows on a streaming service to quantify which service carried the most titles in the top 100 and their relative popularity weighed against the price.
Finder looked at these 24 streaming services in Australia:
Finder was given access to the top 100 TV series popularity data from Parrot Analytics' enterprise audience analytics dataset. Parrot Analytics compares the demand that exists for each series in Australia against the average TV show.

Best streaming service for HD content value
Our selection for the best streaming service in Australia for HD content value uses Parrot Analytics' Global TV Demand data plus the cost of each streaming service where you can view in HD and features at least 2 simultaneous streams. As cost was a determining factor in this, free-to-air streaming services are excluded from the results.
Paramount Plus is perched at the top of our rankings for content value, finally knocking off Prime Video.
Disney Plus is another service that benefits from having only 1 plan that automatically offers HD and a high number of in-demand shows. This saw it jump Prime Video in April's data.
Prime Video is now the number 3 streaming service regarding content value in HD. It's worth noting that for this calculation we still used Prime Video's $6.99 a month price point. With the Prime Video price going up in May it could drop down the rankings next month.
Each service was given a monthly value score based on its monthly price and the number of in-demand shows it had in the top 100.
The monthly value score involved the number of in-demand shows divided by the monthly cost of the streaming service.
We used HD viewing as a baseline experience. If a service has multiple plans, we chose the cheapest plan where HD was available, but it needed to have a minimum of 2 simultaneous streams.
Even though Netflix's Basic with Ads plan is available in HD, it is not counted in this category as it's the only streaming service where you specifically pay for ads. It's not on an equal footing with the other services featured here.
Any discounts during the data period were not considered – only the standard monthly price of a streaming service in Australia.
As the cost per month was a criterion, free streaming services are not ranked in this category.
Best streaming service for overall quality of TV shows
Our selection for the best service for overall quality of shows is based on the percentage of the top 100 in-demand shows a streaming service has had in relation to the total number of shows in its catalogue.
So while a streaming service could have a higher overall number of titles, they're not all going to be winners. That's why the best in this instance is not based on the number of titles in a streaming service's library but on the quality of these shows.
Thanks to its popularity in April, Paramount Plus has been able to make it 3 from 3. Despite it not being the biggest streaming service on the market, it still packs a punch. It has been boosted up our rankings leapfrogging both Apple TV and Disney Plus thanks to the success of new Australian original Last King of the Cross, South Park and lesser-known shows like Mayor of Kingstown and Yellowjackets.
Apple TV Plus's mantra is quality over quantity and it has paid off as it's ranked the best streaming service for the quality of its TV shows. However, this is because of only the small number of shows on the service, with only 98 in total. The number of in-demand shows is only 2 for April: Ted Lasso and Shrinking. The likes of For All Mankind, Shantaram, See and Slow Horses are no longer on the list.
Disney Plus is still sitting inside the top 3. It has a constant stream of shows that people are loving. However, Andor is the only recent release. Shows like Station 19, Grey's Anatomy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and 9-1-1 are helping prop it up. With news that Disney might start getting rid of old shows off its service, it may jump further up for this category, by trimming the fat.
It may be shocking rather than surprising but Netflix came in dead last in April for quality of shows. Original series Stranger Things is still adored by Aussies, but no other Netflix originals made the top 100 which punished Netflix this month.
We were very surprised Beef didn't crack the list. Netflix can expect more positive May results with the likes of Queen Charlotte.
We calculated the collections of 24 streaming services daily to determine the number of TV shows in their libraries.
Using this number, we could then calculate the percentage of the top 100 in-demand shows a service has in relation to their whole catalogue – the number of in-demand shows divided by the number of TV shows in its catalogue.
The top 100 in-demand shows are provided by Parrot Analytics.

The Force was strong with Disney Plus this month, with the streamer recording its first number one month. Despite a 6% drop in value, the dramatic fall of Paramount Plus worked to its advantage. So too did Ahsoka, with the Star Wars spin-off the most in-demand program of the month. It dragged Star Wars Rebels back into the top 100 with it. Elsewhere Only Murders in the Building. (10th), The Simpsons (13th) and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (20) also did well.
It was a good bounce back for Binge and Foxtel Now this month, with 13% and 12% climbs in value respectively. Foxtel Now also picked up the top spot on the market share charts, with 17.88% of the top 100 most in-demand shows. Binge, meanwhile, was right on the heels of Paramount Plus with a value score of 51 to take 3rd spot. The arrival of Adventure Time: Fionna And Cake not only saw it land in the top 100, but drag the original Adventure Time into the top 5. Game of Thrones cracked back into the top 20, while Young Sheldon, What We Do In The Shadows, Succession and The Last of Us held strong.
After a great September, Stan continued its upward trend, with growth of 6% in value score. Notably, it also took the top spot in the debut series charts. This was thanks to the arrival of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon and The Winter King. It joins The Walking Dead: Dead City as a 2023 debuts doing numbers for the service. It could have been better, too, but Twisted Metal dropped straight out of the top 100. Other shows lifting Stan's value were Yellowstone, Billions, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, The Flash and Doctor Who.
It has been a poor period for Prime Video, which dropped 28% in value to its lowest score ever of 44.9. It plummeted to 7th in market share of the top 100, too, with less than 6%. Good Omenshas been holding the service together, still hanging around in the top 10. And it was supported by a second season of The Wheel of Time landing in 5th. But The Summer I Turned Pretty dropped straight out of the Top 100 and the only other shows that aren't legacy titles are The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart(40) and Deadloch (73).
While still having a good period, it was the first downward slide for Apple TV Plus in many months. It slid 14%. However, there were still plenty of exclusive entries in the top 100, led by Ted Lasso, Hijack, Foundation, Invasion and Silo.
It was ABC iView that took a second number 1 result in the October TV charts, holding steady with a value score of 84. Bay of Fires and Utopia served the adults. While top 10 hit Bluey starred for the kids alongside Peppa Pig and Thomas and Friends.
The big mover was 9Now, up 118% and 3 spots after a dismal September. The Block, Supernatural, Young Sheldonand 60 Minutes the stars.
It was a shocker for 10 Play, with not one show making the top 100. MasterChef, Hunted and The Inspired Unemployed (Impractical) Jokers dropped out.
It was a great month for Stan, which has been in the doldrums all year. The app saw 49% growth, reaching a year-high value score of 23. In fact, it matches the app's best result from back in October 2022. The Walking Dead: Dead City, Yellowstone and Doctor Who have held strong, but the real boost came from Twisted Metal and a new season of Billions.
Disney Plus turned around some recent struggles to find 23% growth, giving it a podium finish with a value score of 59. A top 10 debut for Star Wars spin-off Ahsoka was a highlight, as well as a new season of Only Murders in the Building. And Futurama made a successful return. Disney Plus also overtook Paramount Plus for the first time in seven months when it came to market share, claiming 12.6% of TV show demand.
It's been a hit and miss year for new 2023 shows finding demand from viewers, but this month 17 of the top 100 are fresh experiences.
It doesn't look like many of the new Netflix shows are making an impact. The only newcomer of note was a second season of Heartstopper. But the app only has one 2023 debut show in the top 100 (children's cartoon series Bebefinn), and only one top 20 exclusive in The Witcher. It held steady at a value score of 29. But considering all its rivals went up, that feels like a loss.
Over on the free charts, it was ABC iView that stormed upwards with 64% growth and a value score of 83. While Bluey, Utopia and Sesame Street did well for the app, it was the debut of Bay of Fires which set the service alight.
7 Plus held onto second spot, thanks largely to The Voice, both the Australian and American editions. But 10 Play was the biggest mover. It saw 134% growth, thanks to new seasons of MasterChef and Hunted, as well as The Inspired Unemployed (Impractical) Jokers.
It was a poor month for 9Now with The Ashes done and dusted. The app dropped 69%. Its Achilles heel is not having the most recent seasons of the most in-demand shows on its service.
It looks like Apple TV Plus is finally seeing some reward for its focus on quality new exclusives over a large library of legacy shows. It registered its 4th consecutive month of growth, pushing to a service high value score of 27. Ted Lasso and Silo continue to be top 15 stalwarts. And even though Shrinking dropped out of the Top 100 this month, we did see excellent debuts for The Crowded Room, Hijack and the second season of Foundation.
When it comes to the market share of programs in the top 100, Foxtel Now was home to 19.25% of the content, equalling its record high from March 2023. Sister service Binge also had a service high of 17.45%. In part this is due to both Paramount Plus and Disney Plus both suffering declines in show demand. But strong entries for new season of The Righteous Gemstones and Warrior As did the arrival of Piers Morgan Uncensored, who benefited from his commentary around The Ashes. The White Lotus did drop out of the top 100, but What We Do In The Shadows, Succession, Outlander, The Last of Us and Mr Inbetween continue to do well. Foxtel gets the edge as being the only place to get Bluey and The Flash.
Netflix has been treading water for a number of months, but did see a noticeable uptick this time around to the tune of 17%. A 3rd place re-entry for The Witcher, complements of a new season, was the big contributor. While a second season of The Lincoln Lawyer also registered with consumers. The Blacklist and Black Mirror, as well as Aussie hit Utopia, join stalwart Stranger Things in propping up the streamer.
The struggles of Disney Plus continued this month. While there's been a bit of a yo-yo behaviour to the service's value score, it's been consistently well below its peak at the start of 2023. Secret Invasion's controversy got people interested, pushing it into Top 5, while The Bear and revamped love for Futurama also did well. But across the catalogue, general demand is down for legacy programming.
CrunchyRoll dropped 17% in value this month, with anime hits Attack On Titan and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury sliding out of the top 100.
Stan managed to see a new debut arrive in the top 100 in The Walking Dead: Dead City, but it wasn't enough to give the struggling service a noticeable boost.
It was another strong month for 9Now, with 22% growth on the back of A Current Affair, Love Island UK and Nancy Drew rallying the cause. 7 Plus was in hot pursuit with 26% growth, mostly due to The Voice.
It was also a good month for YouTube, with Piers Morgan Uncensored gaining plenty of interest. Parents have also been crowing about kids' nursery rhyme shows Cocomelon and Little Baby Bum.
There was continued growth for Apple TV Plus thanks largely to Ted Lasso being the most in-demand show of the month. There was strong support from Silo, too. While newcomers Platonic and The Crowded Room both cracked in to the top 100. As a result, Apple TV Plus saw a further 13% growth in value, building on the 86% upwards movement it saw in June.
Alarm bells are still sounding over at Stan, with the service's lack of in-demand content seeing yet another drop in value. The Flash remains a top 10 show for the service, but outside of renewed interest in old episodes of Utopia, and a second season of From, there's not too much to crow about. had another month to forget. It doesn't have a single new 2023 show in the top 100.
It was always going to be a tough month for Prime Video as its value was impacted by a significant price rise. It wasn't helped by one of the services worst months yet for in-demand content. As a result, its value dropped 41%. It could have been worse, too, but Deadloch did managed to crack the top 20 on debut.
It was a good month for 7 Plus, with a 30% jump in demand for its content. A key contributor to this rise was a new season of The Rookie, alongside popular legacy content from Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Fire.
It wasn't enough to take top spot from 9Now, despite it suffering a 30% decline in content demand. Mostly this is due to waning interest in LEGO Masters Australia.
Let's take a closer look at the top stories to emerge from this month's charts.
Taking out a 6th straight month in the number one position, Paramount Plus more-or-less held steady in June 2023. Yellowjackets continues to perform for the service, nestled safely in the top 5 most in-demand shows of the month. South Parkalso held strong in the top 10. Last King of the Cross continues to do well, supported by relative newcomers 1923, Star Trek: Picard and Rabbit Hole. It wasn't all glory, with Tulsa King sliding, and newcomer Fatal Attraction only just scraping into the top 70. Still, Paramount Plus is a home to 25% of the most in-demand shows that have debuted in 2023, clearly leading that category. Combined with its attractive price, it's no wonder its value remains so strong.
Prime Video had a timely upshoot in value, considering a price rise will kick in by next month's charts. The arrival of Citadel at 49 and Jury Duty at 95, alongside renewed interest in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel at 33, can be thanked. It drove the value of Prime Video up over 28%, closer to the scores it was achieving at the turn of the year. It will need some big new releases, however, to not take a significant hit to its value when the price goes up.
Despite having a critically acclaimed library of exclusive content, Apple TV Plus has struggled to see that reflect in a strong market share of in-demand content. This month, however, it saw 86% growth, hitting its highest value score to date. The continued love for Ted Lasso, which took 2nd spot this month, is a significant contributor. However, a solid debut for Silo, and new season interest in For All Mankind also played roles. Shrinking held firm, too. It's worth noting that Apple TV Plus is the least reliant of all the service providers on older legacy content (just 19%) to achieve its value proposition.
The gap between sister products Foxtel Now and BINGE is now consistently just fractions. It's evidence that when it comes to content that's in-demand, the difference between the two really just comes down to price. Both services claim the biggest market share of most in-demand shows again this month. Succession is the star performer, taking top spot. But concerning for the platform is the underperformance of new debuts in 2023. They only have one 2023 show in the Top 100, and that's long-since-peaked The Last of Us. Barry, Bluey and Vanderpump Rules did well for the streamers this month. And there was a big resurgence in Mr. Inbetween, which re-entered the charts at 14. The White Lotus, has continued to slide.
Netflix didn't see another slide this month, but there was only minimal growth. Not enough has emerged on the platform to boost confidence in the wake of its password crackdown. The streamer barely holds 6% of the market share of most in-demand TV content. And almost 50% of it is old content, too. The company's only 2023 debut in the top 100 is Bebefinn, with Stranger Things and The Blacklist fans doing a lot of the heavy lifting.
There's more to be alarmed with over at Disney Plus as the company saw its value drop 19% to its lowest score since the inception of the Australian TV Streaming Charts. It's partly due to the streamer's category-high reliance on legacy shows and old seasons, which makes up over 50% of its value score. Not a single show that debuted in 2023 made the top 100 this month. The Mandalorian and The Owl House have held firm in the top 10, but elsewhere, exclusive new shows are sliding. This includes The Simpsons, and Star Wars spin-offs Andor and The Bad Batch.
Stan had another month to forget. It doesn't have a single new 2023 show in the top 100.
Looking at the free apps, it was another huge month for 9Now, which claimed top honours for a 2nd month in a row. LEGO Masters Australia continued to do well, but news programming 60 Minutes, Today and A Current Affair were also popular.
While MasterChef made a splash for 10 Play, ultimately the app went south with 7 Plus and ABC iView. On the up, however, was SBS On Demand. It bucked the trend with 26% growth, thanks largely to a strong debut for Aloneat 46.
Best TV app May 2023 chart analysis
Let's take a closer look at the top stories to emerge from this month's charts.
With another small jump in value, Paramount Plus continues its grip on top spot this month, securing a 5th number 1 ranking in a row. The service continues to benefit from a number of big releases and its $89.99 annual subscription fee. South Park and Yellowjackets continue to hold top 10 spots. There was an impressive debut for Rabbit Hole at 23, which joined 1923 in the top 30. The main reason for the improve was the arrival of Star Trek: Picard on the service, which was formerly a Prime Video exclusive.
There was a slight bump in interest for Apple TV Plus, mostly thanks to the continued success of Ted Lasso.
Amazon's Prime Video service is in a slump. It managed to just hold onto 2nd spot, but suffered a 23% drop in value. With a planned price hike on the horizon, that slide is set to continue. Alarmingly only 3 shows – Daisy Jones & The Six, The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power and Star Trek: Picard from the top 100 debuted this decade, with the latter no longer exclusive. The service is starting to rely too heavily on legacy content like Law & Order: SVU, Chicago Fire and Doctor Who.
To be fair, there was a bit of slump across the board through April. Disney Plus saw an overall popularity slide despite The Mandalorian taking top spot with its latest season and The Owl House and The Simpsons holding firm in the top 20. There were drops for Family Guy, Andor and The Bad Batch.
Stan, Netflix and Funimation also saw minor drops in content popularity. Netflix had a small win with The Night Agent landing at 34 on debut, but alarmingly the only other shows released on the service this decade to make the top 100 were top 10 hit Shadow and Bone and Bebefinn.
It's worse for Stan, which only has Poker Face making a splash from this decade's debut series, and that just crept in at 100th place.
Let's take a closer look at the top stories to emerge from this month's charts.
The rise and rise of Paramount Plus continues, with not only its 4th consecutive month in the number 1 spot, but a 5th consecutive month of growth in market share of the top 100 most in-demand shows. When weighted against its annual price of $89.99 a year, Paramount Plus is the best bang for buck app in Australia this month. South Park surged into the top 10, while the new season of Yellowjackets snagged a top 30 spot. 1923, Last King of The Cross, Mayor of Kingstown and Tulsa King continue to do well, too.
BINGE returns to top spot in the overall market share of in-demand content, just a shade above compatriot Foxtel Now. The Last of Us is the most popular show in Australia, while Succession also proved a hit this month for the TV streaming app. We have seen an over-reliance on legacy content from both these providers. Young Sheldon, Doctor Who, Paw Patrol, Taskmaster and Law & Order: SVU do a lot of the heavy lifting. While big hitters like The White Lotus, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and House of the Dragon have all seen a slide in demand, Letterkenny did have a solid debut.
Prime Video did top the market share charts for 2023 debut series. With 18.17% of the most popular new (calendar year 2023) series, it just pipped Paramount Plus at 17.61%.
It was a good month for Disney Plus, with nearly 25% growth in value to an all-time high of 60. A new season of The Mandalorian is the biggest contributor. However, there continues to be strong love for The Owl House, The Simpsons and Family Guy. While Star Wars entries Andor and The Bad Batch have also seen strong demand.
The downward slide of Netflix has continued. While the service did see a slight 6% increase in value, it's still half of where it was 6 months ago. Young Sheldon and One Piece were the best performers for the service, with Stranger Things continuing to slide. Shadow and Bone was the shining light for the service, with a top 20 debut for its newest season.
Despite the strong debut for Shrinking, demand for Apple TV Plus programming has continued to slide this month. Ted Lasso's place in the top 5 kicking the app's major goal.
Meanwhile Poker Facedidn't debut for Stan as strongly as the TV service provide would have hoped, just scrapping into the top 100. Stan instead leaning on Yellowstone, Breaking Bad, The Flash, Better Caul Saul and The Handmaid's Tale.
On the free app charts, ABC iview secured its first number 1 spot, adding to its 93% growth in March with a further 25% gain. The popularity of Bluey, Doctor Who and Sesame Street played big roles.
