Huge change coming to streaming

Australians will soon have all their favourite global and local streaming services at their fingertips on one handy device.

Jennifer Coolidge thanked the “evil gays” upon her latest Emmy Award win and urged fans to not give up on their dreams after the ‘White Lotus’ gave her a career resurgence later in life.

Hubbl, the newest transformative TV technology designed to make streaming easier, today announced the apps that will join the platform.

Operated by the Foxtel Group*, Hubbl will include global services such as Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Paramount+, as well as video sharing platform YouTube.

Global and local streaming apps have joined Australia’s newest TV technology Hubbl.

While local streaming apps available on Hubbl include BINGE, Kayo Sports, Stan, Optus Sport and Flash, as well as much-loved free streaming apps including ABC iView and ABC Kids, SBS On Demand, 7plus, 9Now and 10 Play.

LifeStyle, a new streaming app that brings together the best lifestyle content, will also launch on the platform.

The White Lotus, starring Jennifer Coolidge and Tom Hollander, will be among the BINGE shows on the platform.

Hit series Outlander, which streams on Foxtel and BINGE, will also be on Hubbl.

Hubbl was first unveiled at Foxtel’s Upfronts event in Sydney last October. Designed to fuse the best local and global content, the small device plugs into any compatible TV and allows consumers to access one user interface, preventing them from having to jump in and out of apps to hunt for new content.

The technology merges premium entertainment and sports, video on demand and live channels into a single experience. To enhance the Hubbl experience, users can also purchase Hubbl Glass, a TV with Hubbl and a high-quality, built-in sound bar that only requires an internet connection and a power cord – no other wires needed.

The device and Hubbl Glass TV will be launched in Australia in the coming months.

Patrick Delany announces new technology Hubbl.

“Hubbl will effortlessly fuse free and paid entertainment and sport from Australia’s favourite apps, channels, live TV and the internet into one seamless user experience,” says Patrick Delany, CEO of Hubbl.

“Hubbl is only as good as the breadth and depth of apps integrated onto the platform to ensure a truly converged streaming experience and in removing frustration when it comes to the choice of what to watch. It’s a huge testament to the transformative Hubbl technology that these world-class and much loved local partners have chosen to reshape the streaming experience with us. The future of TV and streaming is here.”

Details on Hubbl pricing, specifications, features and on-sale date will be announced soon.
