Xbox One owners in Australia have access to another new entertainment app from today. Streaming service Stan offers films and TV shows. This adds to the already extensive list of entertainment services available on the console, including Netflix, SBS On Demand, TENplay, Plus7, ABC iView and Quickflix.
Stan has secured exclusive premieres in 2016, including the highly anticipated, Better Call Saul Season 2 and 11.22.63 on February 16, plus returning seasons of fan favourites UnREAL and Power later in the year. They’ll also add Stan Original Series, Wolf Creek and No Activity Season 2.
Jeremy Hinton, Business Group Lead for Interactive Entertainment at Microsoft Australia, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Stan to the Xbox One. Stan’s content line-up has something for everyone which perfectly complements our incredible list of unique entertainment features on the console such as Live TV, Voice Control, Skype, Xbox Fitness and a huge selection sports apps to name a few. The inclusion of Stan further cements Xbox One as the home of entertainment in Australia.”
“We are always listening to our fans and are constantly improving the entertainment experience with additional features, such as the highly requested personal assistant, Cortana integration, live TV DVR and many new Universal Apps coming to Xbox One in the near future.”
It is great to see another entertainment option for Aussie consumers, however Stan doesn’t have the content and user-base of the international giant, Netflix. If there’s something specific you have to have on Stan, then you can grab it for $10 a month. Existing Stan subscribers can log in to the app on Xbox One as of today, using their username and password linked to their account. New subscribers can sign up at www.stan.com.au and try before you buy with 30-day free trial.
