Foxtel's plan tiers are a little different to Binge, following the traditional pay TV channel pack system. Quiet on Set is available on the Investigation Discovery Channel, which is a part of the base Foxtel Plus pack and therefore included on every Foxtel package. Here's a sample of pricing from Foxtel's cheapest plan to its most expensive, the all-inclusive Foxtel Platinum Plus Package.

Being available on Foxtel means it's also available on Foxtel Now, the streaming on-demand alternative to traditional Foxtel. 

Foxtel Now is a little cheaper than Foxtel and can be accessed for only $25/mth for the Essentials package. The other benefit of Foxtel Now is that it also comes with a free 10-day trial. So you can cancel your service after watching Quiet on Set if there's nothing else that catches your eye.

What is Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids' TV about?


During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Nickelodeon ruled childrens' television on cable TV in the US and abroad. Here in Australia, Nick was a staple drawcard for families forking out for Foxtel

Variety comedy shows like All That and The Amanda Show had a seemingly aloof and absurd sense of humour that was machined to perfection for children across the world. It was like MAD TV for kids. It was a magical time for television if you grew up in the 90s but as we now know, things weren't as innocent as they seemed and a lot the children who brought that magic to life were subjected to some horrendous and toxic workplace conditions on set. 

What was once an open secret amongst those who had worked in the industry at the time came to light in Jeanette McCurdy's 2023 memoir I'm Glad My Mom Died, in which McCurdy recalls the negligence and abuse she received from various adults in her life, including her mother while working on the hit TV show iCarly. 

This, in part, kicked off a series of investigations and interviews by Business Insider's Kate Taylor that explored the toxic work culture behind the scenes at Nickelodeon, and the allegations against show creator Dan Schneider. Allegations that include abuse, sexism and that Schneider had pursued inappropriate relationships with the children and teenagers that worked on shows like The Amanda Show, iCarly and Victorious. 

As Quiet on Set tragically reveals, Schneider's inappropriate behaviour on set was just the beginning, as more disturbing details are revealed about some of the other adults working on these kids' shows at the time. 

When did episodes of Quiet on Set release in Australia?

Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids' TV premiered in March 2024 in the US. Here in Australia, it first aired in April. Double episodes dropped across April 5th and 6th on the Investigation Discovery channel. All four original episodes and the fifth follow-up episode are available to stream now.

When did Quiet on Set Episode 5 release?

After the shattering revelations from the first four episodes of the miniseries Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids' TV first aired, a follow-up fifth episode was announced. Titled "Breaking the Silence," the fifth episode features more conversations with Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, who revealed disturbing details about former dialogue coach and convicted sex offender Brian Peck, and more reactions from Nickelodeon alumni in light of the series' original release. 

The fifth episode of Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids' TV released on Friday the 19th of April and is now available to stream via Binge and the Investigation Discovery channel on Foxtel.
