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.
Brought to you by the same team that built Kayo Sports, Australia’s premier sports streaming service, BINGE is built on the same technology platform as Kayo, offering a world-class user experience to the binge-loving masses.
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, but the recent lockdown measures have increased demand and turned streaming and bingeing into national pastimes.
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 the boxset – think Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Walking Dead – and it boasts an ever-expanding library of premium movies.
Topping it off is a solid offering of reality TV, documentaries and lifestyle shows, all wrapped up in a slick easy-to-use interface.
