What is BINGE?
BINGE is an Australian streaming service offering over 10,000 hours of the best drama, reality, lifestyle and movies by the world’s best producers, directors and studios.
There’s no doubt our love affair with streaming has blossomed over the last few years, with more Australians choosing unlimited data plans than ever before.
While competition for our attention grows, BINGE holds its own in the battle of the streaming apps – mostly because of its exceptional content but also because of its reasonable price point.
BINGE is a goldmine for fans of HBO classics – think Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Wire– and it boasts an ever-expanding library of premium movies.
Topping it off is a solid offering of reality, comedy, documentaries, crime and loads more, all wrapped up in a slick easy-to-use interface.
