Sherlock on Stan

Siri can now help you find exactly what you're looking for on Stan.

Australian streaming service Stan has announced Siri compatibility with its Apple TV app. 4th generation Apple TV owners can now search for titles, genres, actors and more using the Apple TV's remotes in-built microphone.

This opens up Stan's lineup to Apple TV's universal search feature, joining the likes of iTunes and Netflix. Rather than mining through various apps to find exactly which TV show, movie or actor they are looking for, users can call on Siri's help to search the extensive libraries of iTunes, Netflix and Stan from the home screen.

At last count, Stan's library was home to over 850 television seasons and 1,400 movies. Couple that with Netflix's 1m700+ movies and more than 670 TV seasons and Apple TV's universal search starts to look very appealing.

Not a Stan subscriber? Apple TV will still show you the way, redirecting you to the app download in Stan.

With Windows 10 and Xbox One recently joining Stan's family of compatible devices, the Australian streaming service now is available on the most popular smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and streaming media players.

Recently, Stan announced that it had locked down the rights to season 4 of BBC's Sherlock in addition to any future seasons or specials released.
