What’s new on Netflix, Stan and Presto in April 2016?

Alex Kidman 29 March 2016 NEWS


Netflix makes a further push with Originals series, Stan offers more Frasier than you can poke a psychiatrist at and Presto goes heavily in favour of films. Here’s what you’ll find on local streaming services in April.

April is the month of April Fools’, although it seems as though nobody told the streaming services. Netflix has a lot of content set to appear on 1 April, but this includes The Babadook, which isn’t exactly a comedy. Neither is Stan’s offering of The Human Centipede 3 unless we’ve seriously misjudged that series. Presto does at least offer a variety of movies – a lot of movies, in fact – although we're still not convinced that Pixels is actually funny.

What’s new on Presto April 2016

Presto's trading heavily on expanding its movies library in April, with the vast majority of its newly-added content being films rather than TV shows, although it will add The Mindy Project in April as well.

What’s new on Netflix April 2016

Netflix continues to steam ahead with a focus on its own "originals" programming, including Season 2 of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Team Foxcatcher. It’s also rather heavily front-loading April with a significant quantity of content appearing on 1 April. However, just prior to that Netflix Australia also announced the arrival of classic Will Smith comedy series The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air which goes live on 24 March.

So for those old enough to remember it, hit the music:

    When is someone going to air Beauty and the Beast (2012) in Australia

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieMarch 31, 2016Staff

      Hi Jan,

      We can’t possibly know when, if at all, an Australian streaming service will decide to stream the 2012 Beauty and the Beast TV series, but we’ll be sure to list it if it ever does become available. Alternatively, you could always download it on iTunes at $3.49 an episode or relive the classic Disney version and 2011’s modernized adaptation Beastly (starring Vanessa Hudgens) on Presto (which is currently running a free 1-month trial).

      Hope that helps,
