If I had a nickel for every time there was a brand new streaming original named Poker Face to watch, I'd have two nickels. That isn't a lot, but it's weird that it's happened twice within a period of six months.

Whether you're looking to throw on Russell Crowe's newest action-thriller or Rian Johnson's upcoming case-of-the-week mystery series, we've also got you covered.

What is Poker Face (2022) about?

Directed by and starring Crowe in a leading role, Poker Face is a thriller where a high-stakes game night between friends goes awry and threatens to take an even darker and more violent turn.

The official synopsis for the flick is as follows:

"Set in the world of high-stakes betting, Russell Crowe is Jake Foley, a gambler who offers his best friends a chance to win more money than they’ve ever dreamed of. But to play, they’ll have to give up the one thing they spend their lives trying to keep…their secrets. As the game unfolds, the long-time friends will discover what is really at stake."

In addition to Crowe, the film stars Aden Young, Elsa Pataky, Jacqueline McKenzie, Daniel MacPherson, Brooke Satchwell, Matt Nable, Benedict Hardie, Steve Bastoni, and RZA.

What about the Poker Face (2023) TV series?

The "other" Poker Face is also streaming on Stan

Although it's entirely unrelated to the recently released Russell Crowe film it shares a name with, Aussies looking to stream the upcoming Poker Face TV series is ending up in the same place.

Stan currently have the first few episodes of Poker Face ready to stream, with more dropping each week.

Back in 2020, Stan signed a multi-year agreement with NBCUniversal that saw the former act as the Australian streaming distributor for a number of Peacock Originals. This has seen Stan become the place to stream series like Rutherford Falls, Brave New World and Bel-Air.

This deal is set to expire in 2023 with Stan missing out on a second run with the rights. In the future, it looks like Foxtel and Binge will be the place to look when it comes to Peacock Originals.

Despite this, Stan is still the place to look if you're keen to stream Rian Johnson's first take on TV.

When does the Poker Face (2023) TV series release in Australia?

Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Knives Out, Glass Onion, Looper), Aussies will be able to get their first taste of Poker Face when the TV series premieres on the 27th of January, 2023.

All told, the first season of the Peacock Original Series Poker Face will consist of 10 episodes. The first four episodes of the series dropped on the 27th of January, with the following six episodes airing one per week for the six weeks thereafter.

It's not yet known whether the series will be renewed, or even if it's intended to live as a limited miniseries rather than something more serialized. We'll have to wait and see.

What is Stan?

Stan, Australia’s homegrown subscription streaming service, launched in January 2015 six months ahead of the looming landscape-shaker, Netflix.

The Stan library houses roughly 2,300 movies and nearly 900 TV shows. Regardless of which takes your fancy, content streamed via Stan can be consumed on an array of devices including most major smart TVs, PS3, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Apple TV, Fetch TV, Telstra TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android and iOS phones and tablets, and web browsers on PC and Mac.

As far as streaming services go, Stan isn't quite a market leader but there's enough to like about it that it's well considering as a supplementary or second streaming subscription. For a better sense of how it compares to some of the other options, check out the table below.
