    Default Netflix, Stan, Presto

    Netflix I like because it's user friendly, streams at a higher quality and (based on the US) will update content fairly often. I do prefer the US version though and will switch my iPad back soon. Will probably get appletv so I can have access to both.
    iinet (inc. internode) is unmetered with Netflix.
    One of the awesome things about Netflix (not for me cos no kids) is their kids section. It's incredibly easy for kids to navigate without stumbling on anything inappropriate.

    Stan seems ok so far - same quality as netflix, though I'm finding it a little temperamental. It's content is similar, but a little different. More TV shows, less movies.

    Presto I'm not impressed with. I have a six month free trial. It will only steam in SD. The only positive is that it has a massive range of older kids movies, particularly Disney. TV shows are an awful selection though.

    With Stan and Netflix - it's $20-ish a month - so I figure it's less than buying a new movie a month. Unlimited internet so that doesn't bother me.

    What do you mean without stumbling onto anything inappropriate ...?

    You can lock their profile out to only access children's content, so they won't be able to watch rouge episodes of Orange is the new Black scrolling through looking for Doc McStuffins

    I love Netflix but I wish they had more educational content for a 2-3 year kid to watch! We limit screen time of course, but sometimes kids get to learn their abcs only if you present it in a fun way!..

    To get US Netflix download google chrome and then add the Hola app. You can switch to any region. I watch AU, US and UK Netflix all from just the one aussie subscription using Hola.
    Think it's great value for the $12 Netflix monthly fee. The Hola app doesn't cost you anything

    Sejimumma, not very techno savy here, so apologies if this is a stupid question, we are getting a smart tv installed tomorrow. Can I download this app onto the tv and change to the U.S. version?

    Thank you!! We were accessing the American version but were going through another party that required me to change all my settings and pay $10 a month so we cancelled.
    Just downloaded this app and I'm back up and running

    Love Netflix but we watch the US content as it has a lot more available.

    Also watch Hulu (through US).

    Don't even bother with free to air anymore except for the news.

    What's the deal with Hulu? I've heard of it but I'm not sure what it is exactly.
