BINGE streaming service: Price, features, comparison and content

Here's what you need to know about the BINGE TV streaming service and app.

BINGE is an Australian streaming TV service that entered the market in 2020 as a rival to an abundance of streaming providers and as an alternative to Foxtel Now.

A subscription buys you access to a wide collection of TV shows and movies, with kids programming, reality TV, WWE and documentaries available too.

While not technically a Foxtel product, BINGE does have access to the same content rights purchased by News Corp for Foxtel. Unlike Foxtel Now, it enables users to pay a single price to access the entire catalogue instead of relying on channel packs.

BINGE offers 3 price tiers: the Basic plan ($10 a month), Standard plan ($18 a month) and the Premium plan ($22 a month).

The difference in tiers is based on the presence of ads, picture quality and the number of simultaneous streams you can have. The Basic plan features ads and only supports 1 stream in HD quality. The 2 higher plans come without ads, are in 4K and feature more simultaneous streams – 2 for Standard and 4 for Premium. These latter 2 packages changed on 26 October 2023, increasing in price and changing to 4K capability.

BINGE opts for monthly instalments and no-lock-in contracts.

BINGE viewing features

BINGE Centre: In line with BINGE's plan to be the new home for true lovers of scripted television, the BINGE Centre acts as a hub page for all the peripheral information around a particular series. You can dive deeper into cast and crew, find making-of documentaries, see behind-the-scenes footage and view some key interviews.

BINGELists: When you're browsing through the over 10,000 hours of content, you will likely come across shows of interest that aren't right for that moment in time. You can add them to your BINGEList and come back to them at a later date. Alternatively, you can watch multiple series concurrently, starting where you left off in each by accessing them through your BINGEList.

Surprise Me!: As its name suggests, this feature puts the fate of your viewing future in the hands of the BINGE editors and the software's AI. They will help select something for you to watch and hopefully find your next big thing.

Adaptive Discovery: BINGE uses machine learning to ensure the AI that surfaces content becomes ever smarter at predicting what you want to see when you search. You can also search by situations or moods, not just by genre or title.

Live TV: BINGE offers users access to 29 Foxtel TV channels live via the internet. They allow subscribers to catch weekly episodes of new series live rather than waiting for them to be uploaded to the on-demand library.

How does BINGE compare to other streaming services?

BINGE has some original content as well as access to HBO, NBCUniversal, Discovery and BBC. In a competitive market, the service holds its own thanks to its rich library and fun features. You can check out the guides below to see how it compares.

Is BINGE worth it?

If you love to dive headlong into multiple seasons of the best, award-winning TV in the world, BINGE is quite compelling. While other services, notably Prime Video and Netflix, have a stack more content and Disney has all the blockbuster brands, BINGE has set its focus on high-quality TV.

If you've been scared off Foxtel Now by the price and bloat, BINGE is also a welcome arrival. It gives you a chance to take a shortcut straight to the good stuff and at a cheaper price too. This is your chance to feast on the likes of Succession, The Last of Us or Game of Thrones with reckless abandon.

The library is diverse, so there's something for the entire family, including reality TV shows, docos and kids programming. If you're a fan of cutting-edge technology, you'll likely be frustrated by the lack of Dolby Atmos support. Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus offer this as standard at a lower price.

With no lock-in contract, any TV connoisseur is going to easily get their money's worth, especially as more new content emerges from HBO Max. Grab the free trial and give it a go.
