Stan joins Playstation


SVOD service Stan is set to launch on PlayStation3 and PlayStation4 tomorrow.

Existing Stan subscribers can log in to the app on PlayStation3 and PlayStation4 from Thursday October 8th with their existing username and password. Select outlets will also offer a three month subscription with eligible PlayStation products as a launch promotion.

Mike Sneesby, Stan CEO, said “Our partnership with PlayStation brings Stan to the highest selling game console in Australia. We are thrilled that new and existing subscribers can now access Stan’s library of award winning TV shows and box office hits directly on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4.”

“Launching Stan on PlayStation is a significant milestone in our roadmap as we bring Australians more ways to access our exciting line-up of content in HD on the big screen.”

Michael Ephraim, Managing Director at Sony Computer Entertainment, said, “Partnering with Stan is one of the most exciting additions to our entertainment offering to date, and another step towards allowing us to bring a full suite of gaming and entertainment to the whole family – not just gamers.

“Stan’s positioning and popularity as one of the best SVOD services in the market means our fans can see PlayStation is the best place to play, watch and listen this Christmas. Not only do we have the best music, TV and films – we also have the best games, making PS4 the best set top box for the whole family.”

Stan also premieres Ash vs Evil Dead, by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert, on October 31.

In addition to Ash vs. Evil Dead, PlayStation owners will also be able to enjoy the ultimate HD binge-fest with fast-tracked TV shows like iZombie, UnREAL and Power; plus every episode of popular series such as Friends, The O.C., Community, Justified and Breaking Bad; as well as the upcoming new series of Emmy award winning Transparent, Emmy nominated Better Call Saul, brand new Sherlock and Stan Original series No Activity.

Blockbuster movies including all three instalments of The Hunger Games and every Bond film ever made, plus kids favourites such as Adventure Time, The LEGO Movie, iCarly round out this entertainment mega offer.


  1. Lets just hope they do a better job on the PS3/4 app than they did on the the appletv one. A streaming video service that doesn’t keep track of which episodes you’ve watched is useless

    • I personally can’t stand channel 9 and refuse to watch it, but Stan is a whole other ball game. It works without a hitch and has a pretty decent content library. It’s just a shame it hasnt got any smart TV apps for leading TV brands like Netflix, Quickflix, and most of the network catch up services do.

    • Stan and Jump In couldn’t be more different. Stan offers HD content and has an excellent range of movies and shows, I have it and Netflix and I find myself watching Stan far more these days since it became available on the apple tv.

      I think once they become available on more devices, this new availability on playstation will certainly help, the popularity will only grow as more people will see how good the content on it is.
