The Aussie video-on-demand scene is starting to heat up, and 2015 is going to be a hot year especially with Netflix increasingly cracking down on international users visiting via VPN. Nine Entertainment and Fairfax Media's joint venture Stan has its all-you-can-eat movies and TV streaming price tag finally been locked down.
Although the streaming service's rough monthly cost has always been pegged at around $10, the price was first confirmed with a full-page ad in the Sun-Herald (and Victoria's The Age) on Sunday:
It's also now reflected on the front page of the Stan website, currently a placeholder until the service itself launches around the end of January. $10 is a pretty decent price for even a modest range of TV shows and movies; it's definitely that magic figure that makes Netflix and competing services like Presto seem like a great deal for effectively unlimited entertainment.
Stan is bringing fantasy back to life for just $10/month. Stan is coming soon.
Get ready to watch thousands of hours of TV and Movies on Stan with unlimited access for only $10/month. Stan will be the home of Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad and all of the other amazing content already announced. Stan will also have the complete collection of Bond films at your fingertips including Skyfall, the highest-grossing and most critically acclaimed Bond film ever. The legacy of Bond spans five decades and has delivered us 6 charismatic men - Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore, George Lazenby and Sean Connery. Just like the spice girls, there is a Bond for every taste.
Huff Post has named Golden Globe nominated Transparent as “The Best Show of 2014”. See this and other highly anticipated shows like Better Call Saul and Mozart in the Jungle first on Stan.
Stan will be bringing you award winning TV like Ray Donovan, Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife and Fargo. Settle in on the couch with new and classic blockbusters like The Hobbit, Channing Tatum in 21 Jump St, The Rocky Franchise with Sly Stallone and Robocop.
And let’s not forget the kids. Stan has the kids covered with Dora The Explorer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Octonauts and iCarly. The dedicated kids zone means you can set up individual profiles to make sure the little ones aren’t watching Basic Instinct!
This is the start of a beautiful friendship,
