We have had no problems with watching Netflix this way and have broadband with iiNet.
    You can also run it through a ps4 or Xbox ( our Netflix is through the ps4)

    We have both Netflix and Presto at the moment as we got a 6 month trial fir Presto for free when we changed over to our new Internet provider.
    Netflix is SO much better has so much more content and especially for kids. I have a 2 DS and there are so many educational and music shows for toddlers we dont watch alot of TV but when we do we seem to be watching Netflix

    Netflix. I have iinet so it doesn't eat into downloads. Netflix is cheaper. We pay 11 a month for unlimited devices. Presto is 10 a month for shows and 10 for movies.

    Following, we have Netflix but I was thinking of trying presto for the free month as I like some of their options.

    We play Netflix through our wii u, we have a smart TV but it's a pita and the wii pad is really convenient.

    I haven't tried Presto, but we have got Netflix and love it.
    It's pretty cheap and imo well worth the money

    I think netflix is great for kids and movies but we haven't found many tv shows that have grabbed our interest. Everything i want to watch isnt on there

    Netflix, Chromecast and our LG Smart TV have changed our lives 😂 Sounds so shallow & insignificant but it's just so easy, no more arguing over what to watch, we even use the TV as our web browser so DD can watch things on YouTube or we can plan our reno using those online planners without having to squint at the iPad/laptop (first world problems!). We have Netflix through iiNet and it's great. The kids content seems endless!

    Actually now that you have said that my parents had nothing but trouble with their Samsung TV not playing Netflix. We have an Apple TV and it is brilliant. As soon as they got one, Netflix was perfect.

    I have tried netflix, Stan and presto and Presto was unbelievably, embarrassingly bad compared to the other two.

    Netflix hands down. Murdoch has a stake in Presto so I think that is reason enough to avoid it.
    I think Stan has more/better content than the Australian Netflix, but has awful buffering issues.
    The American Netflix has far more content than the Australian. It's cheaper as well, even with the exchange rate. You just need to download a VPN to be able to watch it, but there are many free ones out there.
