Stan is now available as a Windows 10 App

Alex Kidman 21 July 2016 NEWS


The streaming service is now available as a standalone Windows 10 application.

When it first launched, one of the first platforms that streaming service Stan was available on was the humble desktop browser, running across Windows and Mac platforms. Over time, Stan’s added mobile devices, tablets, gaming consoles, smart TVs and standalone media streamers to its arsenal of available platforms.

Stan’s latest launch target returns to its roots, with a dedicated Windows 10 app available from today from the Microsoft Windows store. Stan’s app will work across devices running Windows 10 from mobiles to tablets to full PCs, with support for mouse, keyboard, touchscreen and Cortana for content searching.

How can I get the Stan Windows 10 app?

The Stan Windows 10 App is available from the Windows Store now. To install it, you’ll need to have a Microsoft Account already. Searching for "Stan" in the store should bring it up as a primary result; at the time of writing it was the first result found in our searches. Once installed, you can launch it and it should ask for your Stan login credentials to begin watching programs. As it’s a full Windows 10 app, you can also optionally pin it to your Start menu for easy access.

What if I don’t have Windows 10?

The Windows 10 app is essentially just another way to access Stan’s services for those users on Windows 10, with accessibility still enabled for regular desktop browsers. Technically speaking, there’s nothing stopping a Windows 10 user from installing the app but using the desktop interface to watch Stan programming. Stan currently lists Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome (v42 or better), Safari (7 or better), Firefox (v34 or better) and Internet Explorer (10 or better) as supported browsers, as well as a variety of other devices.
