A new contender has entered Australia's streaming wars

The choice of streaming options in Australia just got harder.

TV and movie fans rejoice, streaming service BINGE, which boasts shows like Big Little Lies and Game of Thrones, has launched in Australia. 

The streaming service, which enters Australia’s already abundant market of streaming providers, is an alternative to Foxtel Now and is a subsidiary of News Corp and Foxtel. 

While not regarded as a Foxtel product, BINGE features the same content as Foxtel and features more than 10,000 hours of movies and television.

There are three price tiers to access BINGE content, basic, standard and premium. Each tier charges a monthly fee. There are no options to purchase a year-long subscription at a reduced rate or bundle other providers such as Kayo Sports as part of one package.
