Featuring titles from HBO Max, FX, NBC Universal and more.

Less than a month after canning music channels MAX, CMC and [V], Foxtel will launch a new streaming service, reportedly titled Binge, on May 25. 

Joining Australia’s streaming market alongside the likes of Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus, Binge looks to hold its own with what will no doubt be an impressive catalogue of titles, thanks to a multi-year agreement with WarnerMedia.

The new streaming platform will feature shows from Sony, WarnerBros, HBO Max, FX, NBC Universal and the BBC, networks responsible for the likes of Game of ThronesIt’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Big Little Lies.

Foxtel also recently obtained exclusive rights to air HBO Max content in Australia, so if you want to glimpse shows like the Gossip Girl reboot, Tokyo Vice or Adventure Time: Distant Lands, you’ll need a subscription for Binge.

“There has been a lot of speculation about our new streaming service and its name, and we are pleased to finally be ready for the big reveal to Australia next week,” Foxtel Group CEO Patrick Delany said in a statement.

“It brings an exciting new brand to younger streaming audiences with a very different and compelling product experience, and a distinctly curated mix of the best drama and movies from the world’s best entertainment brands,” Delany said.

Foxtel’s new streaming service will launch on May 25.
