Stan: Price, features and content

Stan delivers ultra high definition video streaming to Australians, with plenty of local and international content.

Stan is a local streaming service owned by Nine Entertainment. As an on-demand TV show and movie provider with a strong library and local production budget, it's one of Netflix's strongest competitors in Australia.

Stan has content broadcasting rights deals with a variety of producers like MGM and Lionsgate, but also suffered significant content losses with services like Paramount Plus and Disney Plus taking back shows they own. However, the streaming service now offers live sport and doubled down on original content to compensate.

      Hi Anne,
      Unfortunately Stan discontinued their Windows app for laptops and it currently doesn’t work. Stan says they’re “working on bringing back the Stan Windows App”, but this hasn’t happened recently. The only way you can watch Stan via your laptop is streaming on a web browser.
      If you wanted to download Stan TV shows and movies to watch while travelling, you can only do this on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches (iOS version 11.0 and above) and Android mobile devices (version 4.4 and above). You can find more info here: https://help.stan.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/115003299247-Download-your-favourite-TV-Shows-and-Movies
      Hope this helps.

      Hi Liz,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      Using a web browser on a Mac or PC, head over to Stan’s website and log in to your account.
      Hover your mouse over your profile in the top right corner and select Manage Account.
      Select I’ve forgotten my PIN located towards the bottom of the page.
      Stan will then send you an email containing a link that will allow you to create a brand new PIN (PIN must be 4 numeric digits).

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
