There are now so many different streaming platforms available that it can be hard to choose which one’s right for you.

We all know about the most popular players such as Netflix and Stan but more services have become available in Australia recently.

Binge is one example of a newer streaming service, launched in May 2020 by Foxtel. But how does Binge compare with the others on content and value? Let’s take a look.

How much does Binge cost and what are the plan options?

Every Binge subscription tier comes with:

  • Ad free, on demand streaming
  • Access to over 10,000 hours of content
  • Ability to cancel anytime
  • Dolby digital sound 
  • Features such as BingeLists and Surprise me!

You can also get a 14 day free trial in case you’re not sure if you’re ready to commit to a month long membership.

How does Binge's pricing compare with other streaming platforms?

Unfortunately, it’s hard to fairly compare prices because some platforms such as Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ only offer one plan option.

In addition, Stan and Netflix’s premium plans cost more than Binge’s premium plan but they offer 4k Ultra HD streaming which Binge doesn’t.

However, here are the price breakdowns for the streaming services available in Australia.
