Australian TV On Demand


Here is what we know as of March 2015

Stan


StreamCo's service is accessed via iOS and Android apps. Android users can then view content on their TV via the Chromecast dongle, while Apple AirPlay enables iOS enthusiasts to stream content to their Apple TV.

StreamCo's streaming service costs $10 per month with a 30-day free trial.

Presto


Foxtel / Seven does not offer an app for smartphone devices, so you can only stream to your TV from iPads, selected Android tablets and your computer using Chromecast.

The only way to watch Presto on your television is to stream video from a computer or handheld device to a $50 Google Chromecast. You can do the same with Stan, but it has the added option of AirPlay streaming to a $109 Apple TV – something which is disabled on Presto and the other Foxtel-backed streaming apps.

Comes in a few flavours. $14.99 per month with a 30-day free trial will get you both movies and TV content, although you can also choose between the Movie pack or TV pack for $9.99 each.

Quickflix


Available directly through Samsung, Panasonic, LG and Sony smart TVs, Quickflix is also compatible with PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Australia's oldest SVOD service starts at $9.99 with a 14-day free trial. The streaming service can be packaged with a DVD delivery service for $19.99, or the DVD service alone is available for $12.99. Quickflix also has a premium service where purchase new release titles can be purchased individually as pay-per-view.

Netflix


The US heavyweight has not released information on exactly which devices will be compatible at launch, but has stated that the list will include smart TVs, tablets and smartphones, computers and a range of game consoles and set-top boxes.

With over 1,000 different internet-connected devices supported in the US, Netflix's connectivity is likely to be more comprehensive than any of its competitors.

The Australian Netflix service launched 24th March 2015 with plans from A$8.99 a month with the first month free.
