Stan | Price, features and content
Stan delivers ultra high definition video streaming to Australians, with plenty of local and international content.
The local streaming service Stan is a joint venture equally owned by Fairfax Media and Nine Entertainment.
As an on-demand TV show and movie provider with a strong library and local production budget, it's by far one of Netflix's strongest competitors in Australia.
Stan has a range of powerful content broadcasting rights with a variety of producers, including Viacom, MGM, BBC Worldwide, Showtime, CBS, Village Roadshow, Starz and Lionsgate (to name a few).
These partnerships allow Stan to stream some of the biggest blockbusters.
Most notably, Stan kicked off local content production back in 2015 with its fly-on-the-wall buddy cop comedy No Activity, before bringing Wolf Creek's Mick Taylor to the small screen in 2016.
Stan made history in 2016 by becoming the first streaming service to be nominated for a Logie Award when No Activity nabbed three nominations: Most Outstanding Supporting Actor for both Dan Wylie and Tim Minchin, and Most Outstanding Comedy Program.
Stan’s streaming plans start at $10 per month for the Basic tier (one screen, standard definition). New subscribers also get a 30-day free trial, but it's worth noting that your card will automatically be debited once the 30 days is over.
As of 18 June 2018, Stan houses 365 TV shows and 998 movies. There are obviously too many titles to list here, but we've got regularly updated lists for Stan's TV show selection and Stan's movie selection.
