    Default Netflix, Stan, Presto

    Anyone signed up to any of these? Pros/cons? I'm with netflix for the free trial month and am finding it very temperamental...

    Hubby just signed up on the weekend. We downloaded both Netflix and presto as presto had a 6 month free trial. So far both working fine. We watched some first season episodes of 3rd rock from the sun last night on Netflix no issues.

    Yep, netflix and presto.

    Netflix; meh. I find 80% of the stuff available is b grade stuff. Hardly any decent new shows. I wont be continuing after the free trial

    Presto appealed to me because for telstra customers it doesn't count towards your download quota, and i saw it had more recent shows. Signed up for the free trial (however as i dont have a tbox and wanted to watch it on my tv and not just my devices i spent money on a chromecast.) only to discover that shows like the walking dead etc are nowhere near upto date or only have one random mid season available. So PSHHH wont be continuing with this either.

    Maybe in too hard to please because i do have basic package foxtel and we used to d/l new shows so these things just dont impress me at all

    We're doing the month trial of Netflix and loving it! Will definitely be signing on to continue. We are with iinet so downloads don't count towards monthly download limits and the quality has been great - hasn't stopped once.

    We are trialing Netflix and it has been a Godsend this school holidays!!!!!. We went with Netflix because the app is on our smart TV. We are certainly getting use out of it. I guess time will tell if we stick with it they really do need to add content on a reasonably regular basis

    I have the free month of Stan. It's ok. I probably wouldn't pay for it on an ongoing basis. Once the month is up I'm going to get a free Netflix trial and then Presto. I'm already not impressed that Presto doesn't work with AppleTV, and leaning towards Netflix because of it not counting to DL limit.

    We have not previously used any form of paytv but signed up to Netflix for a look, agree with a pp the range is not very impressive. We are with Telstra so might look at Presto.

    I'm enjoying netflix. Mostly for the third season of house of cards! That and the old kids movies. Not sure if we will continue after the trial is up.
