Binge free trial: Stream 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.
Unlike Foxtel Now, Binge takes cues from its biggest streaming competitors, offering reasonable pricing, a user-friendly interface, and best of all, a way to trial the service completely free, which is something not even Netflix and Disney Plus offer anymore.
Those interested can get unbridled access to Binge for 2 weeks free.

Binge free trial and other offers
Binge offers a standard 2-week free trial for new customers. Of course, you can make the most of that free trial by signing up with multiple email addresses, one after the other but eventually you’re going to have to pay a monthly price if you want to keep streaming Binge. Depending on the plan you choose (more on that below), you will be automatically charged $10, $14 or $18 exactly two weeks from the day you sign up for your free trial.
|Plan||Free trial||Price (after first 2 weeks)|
|Binge Basic||2 weeks||$10 per month|
|Binge Standard||2 weeks||$14 per month|
|Binge Premium||2 weeks||$18 per month|
That said, if you’ve exhausted every available email address, there’s still a way to get more free Binge. Telstra is offering 3 months of Binge Standard as a bonus when you sign up for any of its NBN broadband plans. Take a look at the table below for a shortlist of Telstra’s most popular broadband plans this week.
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||Monthly Price||Video quality||Streams|
Those prices are almost on par with Netflix and Stan but not as cheap as Prime Video. Take a look at how Binge’s basic pricing stacks up against other streaming services in Australia.
|Service||Free trial||Monthly price||Max. Video Resolution||Devices|
|2 weeks||$10 – $18||HD||1 – 4|
|No free trial||$11.99||4K||4|
|No free trial||$10.99 – $19.99||4K||1 – 4|
|30 days||$10 – $19||4K||1 – 4|
|10 days||$25 – $104||HD||2|
|2 weeks||$25 – $35||HD||2 – 3|
What can I stream Binge on?
Now that you’ve signed up for your free trial, it’s time to choose which device to stream Binge on. Binge is available for web browsers, smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android), Apple TV, Telstra TV, Samsung Smart TVs, and every current Chromecast device (Ultra, 3rd Gen and Chromecast with Google TV). There’s still no support for PlayStation or Xbox but Binge says compatibility for gaming consoles is still planned.
More free trials for streaming in Australia
If you came here looking for a free ride for movies and TV, we’ve got you covered. Netflix and Disney Plus have stopped offering free trials in Australia but there are still plenty of providers offering a try-before-you-subscribe deal.
