How to watch the Fyre and Fyre Fraud documentaries online in Australia

Brodie Fogg 22 January 2019 NEWS

Over 400 stranded socialites, two documentaries, and one scam to Ja-Rule them all.

Back in 2017, you couldn't avoid the red-hot headlines surrounding the catastrophic Fyre Festival. The story spread across the Internet like wildfire for two reasons: first, it involved cashed-up socialites stranded on an island in the Bahamas like some sort of millennial Lord of the Flies scenario, and second, it placed Ja Rule back in the spotlight for the first time in a long time. It had all the ingredients for some delicious, guilt-free schadenfreude.

A year and a half later, as more details have emerged around the spark that lit this trash fire, streaming competitors Netflix and Hulu have released their own candid documentaries that detail the doomed festival's failure to launch.

Naturally, we have a burning desire to get the inside scoop on exactly what caused Fyre to fizzle out, and both documentaries are offering just that, but Australians looking to get their fix will have better luck firing up Netflix's take.

How to stream Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened in Australia

Out of the two docos, the Netflix version is without a doubt the easiest option for Australians. Being a Netflix Original production, the documentary has already been released in Australia and you can stream it right now if you already have a Netflix account.

How to stream Fyre Fraud in Australia

Conversely, Fyre Fraud is an original production from Hulu and is exclusive to US subscribers (at least until Disney takes Hulu global).

That doesn't mean Hulu's Fyre Fraud is completely out of the question for Australians. Just like the Fyre Festival's stranded attendees, your best bet is to tunnel your way into America.

While it's a bit of a legal "grey area", Australians can use a VPN to access Hulu's one-month free trial to watch Fyre Fraud. Just remember to cancel your free trial before the first month is up. Once you've signed up, you can stream Fyre Fraud here.
