      I’m actually not bothered by going back to Australian only services (Netflix + Stan and 6 months free of Presto…which I’ll get free again. It’s regularly free for 3-6 months).

      Not really anything I’m missing, aside from the odd Hulu new release. But now that more shows are being put on delay on Hulu (eps being added 4 weeks after US airdate instead of 1 day), I wouldn’t watch them there anyway.

        I’m curious which commercial VPN services people here are using?

          I have a Getflix account that I’m not using at the moment. Thanks for reminding me as it was just about to auto renew for 6 months :P

              I’m tempted, but not tempted enough to sign up for Stan

              I may attempt to acquire it

                  I’m upset that Netflix didn’t notify me that a new season of Orphan Black was available. How am I supposed to watch this, Parks and Rec, and Zoo at the same time?

                  Good lord, Tatiana Maslany (the Orphan Black clones) appears in Parks and Rec for a bit [love]

                    Does anyone know why iTunes Australia is so slow at releasing Disney Junior content? I’ve been waiting for Star Wars Rebels season 2 for about 9 months since it released on the US iTunes and Avengers Assemble has been out for years on US iTunes but no sign at all of it in Australia. In fact there is barely any Avengers junior content on either Australian Netflix or iTunes.

                      Licensing. It’s always licensing. I imagine those shows are on Disney Channel on Foxtel.

                        Started watching American Pie last night on Netflix, only got 4 mins into it, and had to revert to my hard drive version. It was so dark, it was High Def but so dark. Anyone else experienced this?

                          Could be your settings of your TV or either your Netflix settings.

                                Been a few weeks now with just the one service which is Netflix and I have to say that seems to be more than enough to keep me going especially when I get into a newly discovered series. Don’t laugh but I really can not stop watching episodes of Stargate Atlantis.
                                Even better since I have a tablet because I can fire up a show and go about with some mundane task around the house while watching it.
                                Another bonus is being able to watch anything while out and about, I have enough mobile data to keep me going between devices but to make sure I don’t over do it I have WiFi codes to all my family members places.

                                    Someone at work told me I need to watch it. It can wait until I finish The Wire.

                                    I signed up to a free trial of Presto a month ago, haven’t watched anything on it yet :P

                                      Binged the whole 8 hours in one go. Started watching it a second time round but just an episode every few days now.

                                      Also Netflix apparently has the rights to do a StarTrek tv series or something like that. Should be good.

                                        So watch all Stranger Things over the weekend. Not bad. Don’t think it was quite as good as it was hyped up to be, but I still liked it.
                                        Second season of Between is up now, so will give it another go.

                                          I’ve watched the first three eps of Stranger Things and have really enjoyed it so far.

                                          I will finally get connected to NBN on Wednesday so I’ll be able to watch online streaming services at will without running out of a monthly internet quota.

                                            Stranger Things was amazing. Loved its homage to 70s and 80s movies.

                                              Also @stum91 *whispers* You can actually Google ‘Presto 6 month codes’ and indeed find free codes for 6 months….

                                              I may have been doing this for the past year

                                                Presto is constantly free. In the final month of your free month, you can add a new promo code (for 1, 2, 3 or 6 months depending on where you got it). Can only stack a new code in your final month, so need to remember to do it, but you never need to pay. I mean, the codes are on the back of every supermarket receipt…

                                                Because, apparently, Foxtel add Presto subscribers to their total subscribers. When they say they have 3 million subscribers, 200,000 Presto users that never pay helps boosts their stats for Foxtel subscribers, so they’re happy with that arrangement.
