After using the Stan streaming service, which is operated by Nine and Fairfax for the past week, I can say that it is fantastic value for money, particularly for movie or premier TV drama lovers. The service offers great Australian movies such as Kenny, Animal Kingdom, Chopper, Wolf Creek, Snowtown and many more.
The content on Stan also includes premier TV drama series like Breaking Bad, Fargo, Dexter, The Good Wife, Jack Irish, Ripper Street and The L Word. The Aussie drama series Underbelly season 1 is also on offer. I am really enjoying watching Breaking Bad from season 1-5 and looking forward to watching Underbelly.
Another great thing about the Stan streaming service is the groundbreaking comedies such as Summer Heights High, Nurse Jackie, Community, Transparent and The Office. I discovered a terrific British comedy called The IT Crowd, which is about a company’s tech department, that is able to repair computers but lacks people skills to get through various social situations.
Other content on offer includes the James Bond Collection, which as a Bond fan I really love, world movies, sci-fi and supernatural, documentaries such as The imposter, sagas, sequels and spinoffs like Lord of the Rings, British TV shows, crime and thrillers and teen movies, old school and preschool programs.
The only downside to Stan is not having any sports content such as cricket, AFL, NRL, soccer and tennis. Being a sports lover this was the only thing that disappointed me but overall it is an outstanding service, which offers a lot. Stan offers a lot more content than its Australian rival Quickflix that I also trialled.
The Stan streaming service will be officially launched in Australia on January 26.
Media Release: Friday, January 23, 2015
Foxtel’s powerful new Australian mini-series Deadline Gallipoli will premiere on the showcase channel in April, with its ‘first look’ promo campaign screening from this Australia Day weekend.
Deadline Gallipoli is a fresh look at the Gallipoli legend, from the perspective of four war correspondents, starring Sam Worthington as Phillip Schuler, Hugh Dancy as Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Ewen Leslie as Keith Murdoch and introducing Joel Jackson as Charles Bean.
These were the first truly embedded war correspondents whose defiance ignited a change in the campaign’s course and whose commitment to the stories of the men who turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.
The four hour mini-series follows the campaign from its beginnings in Cairo through to the evacuation from the cove nine months later and finally to 2015 where the life long legacy of the journalists finds its most bitter sweet prize – those who died have not been forgotten.
Following each of the journalists as they travel through months of this bloody battle, we see the men they meet and watch killed, the friendships they make, the woman one falls in love with and the lessons they learn about themselves and what it means to be a witness to such brutality.
Filmed in South Australia across nine weeks, the Deadline Gallipoli cast also includes Charles Dance as General Hamilton, the Commander of the Gallipoli campaign, Rachel Griffiths as his wife Lady Hamilton, Bryan Brown as General Bridges, Anna Torv as Gwendoline Churchill and Jessica de Gouw as Nurse Vera Grant.
Deadline Gallipoli is produced by Matchbox Pictures and Full Clip for Foxtel’s showcase channel.
