TV Streaming Alternatives in Australia

Confused about the abundance of TV streaming services available in Australia at the moment? (August 2015)

You are not alone…. but the Compare website is a great place to look at the benefits and drawbacks of each service



Although Netflix is the most well known, all the service are quite competitive in terms of their content and pricing.

What you need to look out for is the amount of Internet bandwidth they are going to use and ideally find a streaming partner that offers “Unmetered” access. This means that even if you stream 24/7 it should not affect your basic Internet Allowance, quite important as most of us do not enjoy “Unlimited” Internet Bandwidth.

So on the face of it, depend on which ISP you subscribe to will influence your choice of TV streaming provider.

If your ISP is Telstra ……. choose Presto

If your ISP is iiNet, Optus or Internode …Choose Netflix

If your with any other ISP and you don’t have an UNLIMITED bandwidth allowance …look forward to being shaped 🙂

And if you don’t have a TV or device that you can run the Internet on, try Pay-TV such as Foxtel who provide a recording unit that plugs straight into your old-style TV set.
