Looking for The Simpsons? The Office? Game of Thrones? Breaking Bad? Whatever series captured your interest, odds are it's available on one of the many on-demand streaming services available here in Australia.

With so many different services to consider it can be tough to track down which one has snapped up the rights to your new-found obsession (or created it from scratch).

How many TV shows do Stan, Prime Video, Foxtel and Netflix have?

We've compared the TV show totals of some of the biggest streaming services in Australia: Netflix, Prime Video, Foxtel Now, BINGE, Disney+ and Stan.

Follow the links below the to see the lists of TV shows on each service updated daily.

Killing Eve, The Walking Dead and Westworld. Three of the biggest shows on television right now aren't available on Netflix Australia... yet. It's easy to feel inconvenienced or even slightly ripped off when you consider the vast difference between Netflix US content and Netflix Australia content.

However, it is doing an outstanding job producing its own content. Imagine a world without Stranger Things? Or Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Netflix is also releasing locally produced originals, beginning with Tidelands.

      Hi Nicky,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      You are correct, the TV show Humans is no longer available on ABC iView. It is available on Amazon Prime for a fee. Season 1 and 2 available at $19.99 for HD and $14.99 for SD per season. However, if you are a Prime member, you can watch it for $0.

      The good news is they offer a 30 day trial period that you may want to take advantage of. You can press the ‘Get deal’ button to start your Prime Video free trial.

      Hope this helps! 😊

      Kind Regards,

    I have been watching a series called The Family (2016) about Adam Warren who has returned from being kidnapped. I have now forgotten which channel and I cannot find it anywhere. Please help.

      Hi Fiona,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      I tried searching for the TV series “The Family (2016)”, however, I was not able to find where you may watch it in Australia even on our list of TV shows from the biggest streaming services. It is streaming with ABC Go which is currently available in the US only.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Hi Ian,

      Thanks for letting us know. It seems Black Adder has recently been removed from Stan. We’ve updated our comparison to reflect this.

    Crownies is no longer available on Stan. Disappointing as this was the sole reason I signed up.

      Hi Laura,

      Thanks for reaching out to us.

      Sorry to hear about that. Crownies is still on our list for TV shows in Stan. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’ll also have a look and check if it has been completely removed from Stan to make necessary updates on our page.

      Hi Fiona,

      This is correct. Presto will stop streaming as of 31 January.

      We’d recommend moving over to Foxtel Play, Netflix and Stan.

      Hi Margaret,

      Generally, your billing cycle starts on the day you signed up. I would recommend getting in touch with Stan’s customer support to find out for sure.

    I know you cannot give me personal advice, but as I am a pensioner and not very savvy with technology etc I need to ask. My children bought me the converter to plug into my TV and allow me to watch Netflix, Stan or presto etc. I have no idea which company to choose as prices seem about the same. I don’t want to join up with a company and be disappointed, so would I be better to have the first month free trial as an indication of movies, etc available from each company. I have been told that netflix is the most popular, is this correct.

      Hi Robyn,

      Netflix has the most customers and in a global sense has the largest content library. As you’ve noted, however, all three services offer trials of their services for a month; your best bet would be to trial them to see if one has more of the programs or movies you enjoy watching, as no one service has every available title, and you may find that Stan or Presto have more content you’ll actually want to watch.

    Can anyone advise which streaming service offers the most British content ?

      BrodieJanuary 4, 2016

      Hi Bret,

      Both Stan and Netflix have decent British selections, but Stan definitely seems to have more from the BBC. Netflix has a few standout British comedies, like The Office, The IT Crowd and even some quality drama, like Luther. However, Stan has a much wider selection of BBC drama and documentaries.
