Watch your favourite movies and TV shows with a Stan free trial

The Australian streaming service is offering a 30-day free trial to new customers. Learn how to set yours up right here, right now.

Everyone loves free stuff, including us. So we’re pretty stoked with the fact that Australian streaming services are offering free trials that let viewers watch unlimited amounts of whatever TV shows and movies are available with that service.

Stan is no exception; the Internet TV service offers a 30-day free trial to all new customers. All you need is an Internet connection and something to watch your shows on (TVs, smart phones, computers or tablets will do). And yes, Stan is fully compatible with Apple TV and Chromecast.

With no ads and no lock-in contracts, there’s really nothing to lose with this free trial.

How do I get my Stan free trial?

First things first, you'll need to head to the Stan website to sign up for your free trial.

On the right side of the homepage, you'll need to enter your email address and click "Start your free trial". If you've subscribed to Stan before, unfortunately, you're not eligible for a free trial.

You'll then be asked to enter your personal details, set up a password and provide payment details. The payment details are collected because (take note!) as soon as your free trial ends, you will be charged as a regular Stan user. In order to avoid this, you'll need to cancel your subscription before your 30 free days are up.

After you completed registration, you'll be informed of the date your free trial will end.

What's included in my Stan free trial?

Well, everything that Stan offers, at least. The Stan free trial is limited only in the amount of time you can view, not by the amount of content you would can watch.

What do I need to use Stan?

First, you’ll need to be 18 years or older, have a credit card, email address, and an Australian residential address in order to sign up.

Second, you’ll need a device that supports Stan. You can watch on any computer that’s connected to the Internet and uses Google Chrome (v20 or above), Mozilla Firefox (v34 or above), Internet Explorer (v10 or above) or Safari (v7 or above). Most mobile phones and tablets that have been released in the last few years are also compatible. If you have an Apple TV or Chromecast HDMI dongle, you can also watch on any TV.

That’s it! If you’re all set with the above, then all you need to do is register to complete your sign-up and start your Stan free trial.

What do I do when my Stan free trial has ended?

As mentioned above, if you don't cancel your Stan subscription before your free trial has ended, you'll be charged for another month's use. Since Stan is not a contracted plan, you'll continue being charged on a month-to-month basis until you cancel.

If you're happy to keep your Stan subscription, then there's no need to do anything.

      Hi Greg,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      During the sign-up process for Stan you were requested of an email address that you need to link in your account. You would also have received a verification email regarding your sign-up that it has been completed. If you have received this then that would mean that a Stan account is currently active under your name. You may verify this by going to the Stan website and enter your email address in the log in page, click on forgot password to validate that you are connected with Stan. Hope this helps.

      Hi Ray,

      To cancel your Stan membership, simply log into the Stan website from any browser and hover your cursor over “Manage Account”. Under that tab, there should be an option to “Cancel your subscription”, click that and your service will be cancelled. It’s as easy as that. Please remember that your service will continue to run until the end of the billing month.

      Also, please note that is an online comparison service and does not represent Stan.
