Gizmodo Movie Night: The Best Popcorn Munching Blockbusters

It’s almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week, stock up on popcorn and switch off the intellectual side of your brain — you won’t need it for watching the best blockbusters streaming online right now.

We’ve re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia’s other popular subscription video on demand services — Presto and Stan — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.

Presto is $10 to $15 depending which package you choose, Stan costs a flat $10 per month, and Netflix can cost from $9 to $15 per month.
