Best streaming services: Australian Streaming TV Charts I February 2024

Each month, Finder provides a ranked list of the best streaming services in Australia.

It's hard to make a sweeping statement about a definitive best streaming service in Australia as people sign up to them for different reasons. But the constants are price and content. It's these 2 pillars we've used to bring you our best picks for the month.

Finder has partnered with Parrot Analytics to rank the best streaming services in Australia based on the quality of programming and their cost. This means the results are based purely on numbers – no personal bias included.

Snapshot February 2024

  • Paramount Plus is the best streaming service in Australia in February 2024 based on Finder's value score.
  • Foxtel Now is the streaming service that features the most in-demand shows in February 2024.

Best streaming service in Australia - February 2024

Based on Finder's value score, the best streaming service in Australia for February 2024 is Paramount Plus. Finder looks at a show's popularity, season availability, price and more to calculate a monthly value score. This is based on data from January 2024.

      • Paramount Plus is rated the best streaming service in Australia for February 2024. It remained in first place in a fairly stationary month for the charts. Only Disney Plus, Prime Video and Hayu moved positions since January 2024. Paramount Plus increased its value score slightly as the new season of The Gilded Age finally dropped on the service in Australia and Spongebob Squarepants made a reappearance in the most in-demand shows list.
      • BINGE held second place with a big jump in its value score. It was helped by a surge in demand for Our Flag Means Death, most likely boosted by its cancellation news, and the return of Saturday Night Live. There was also renewed interest in The Sopranos, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary, as well as Succession, no doubt in light of its Emmy wins.
      • Disney Plus moved to third, with a few of its shows making a reappearance on the most in-demand list such as Futurama and Welcome to Wrexham. It also received a new - but not the latest - season of Family Guy in January 2024.

Finder looks at the number of shows each streaming service has in the top 100 each month relative to the demand of those shows.

The streaming service in first place is the one with the biggest percentage of shows based on demand for that month. This also factors in whether it has the latest season of a show, as well as any older seasons. It does not take into account the price of accessing those shows.

      • It was a very static month for streaming services that had the most popular shows in Australia, with only Disney Plus and Netflix switching positions from January 2024, now third and fourth respectively.
      • Foxtel Now and BINGE maintained their dominance of the top 2 positions, increasing their overall share since January 2024. They feature nearly exactly the same content, but Foxtel Now just gets the edge courtesy of also screening Bluey and Gold Rush.
      • Disney Plus moved into third with demand for the recent Doctor Who specials and new episodes of The Simpsons still riding high, plus renewed interest in The Bear following its Emmy wins.
