You can try Foxtel’s Binge for 2 weeks free
Foxtel’s long-rumoured TV streaming service has been revealed as Binge. The new app from the team behind the successful Kayo Sports is positioned as the new home for premium entertainment in Australia. All your favourites from HBO, like Game of Thrones, and Succession, and comedy favourites, like Seinfeld, and The Office are just a few highlights available on the service.
Binge is taking queues from its two biggest competitors Netflix and Stan, offering reasonable pricing, a user-friendly interface, and best of all, a way to trial the service completely free.
Those interested can get unbridled access to Binge for 2 weeks free.
Binge will be available for web browsers, Telstra TV, smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android), Apple TV, and Chromecast, with more support to come (e.g. Samsung Smart TVs and PlayStation 4).

How much will Binge cost once my free trial is up?
If you do decide to stick around, you will find Binge’s prices and plans much more reasonable than Foxtel Now’s before it. Rather than $25 to $104 per month, you will be paying between $10 and $18 per month. Here’s what each plan gets you.
|Plan||Video quality||Streams||Monthly Price|
|Binge iTunes Subscription||HD||2||$18|
If you attempt to sign-up on an iOS device (iPhone or iPad), you’re only presented with one plan option: a $13.99 per month iTunes Subscription, which is just a mobile variant on the $14 Standard HD plan. It’s odd that Binge limits you to a single option on iOS devices. We recommend subscribing through a web browser for the full suite of options.
More free trials for streaming
If you came here looking for a free ride for movies and TV, we’ve got you covered. Netflix has stopped offering its free trial in Australia, but there are still plenty of providers offering a try-before-you-buy deal.
