Stan and Microsoft Australia today announced that the subscription video-on-demand service will be available on Xbox One from today, providing unlimited access to Australia’s largest library of SVOD content and an all-in-one entertainment experience.
Xbox One owners can enjoy Stan’s lineup of exclusive premieres in 2016, including the highly anticipated premiere of Better Call Saul Season 2 on February 16, plus returning seasons of fan favourites UnREAL and Power later in the year. Stan Original Series Wolf Creek and No Activity Season 2 will also premiere this year.
With every episode of hugely popular TV series such as Sherlock, Friends, Community and Breaking Bad available to stream exclusively on Stan, Xbox One owners can binge-watch their favourite shows whenever they want, as well as enjoy the biggest blockbuster movies and the best in kids TV.
Stan’s director of content and product, Nick Forward, said: “We’re thrilled to be kicking off 2016 with the launch on Xbox One, offering a unique viewing experience for subscribers to enjoy Stan’s growing lineup of exclusive premieres. We look forward to bringing Australians even more ways to watch the very best TV content on more and more platforms throughout 2016.”

Stan’s content lineup has something for everyone which perfectly complements our incredible list of unique entertainment features on the console such as Live TV, Voice Control, Skype, Xbox Fitness and a huge selection of sports apps, to name a few. The inclusion of Stan further cements Xbox One as the home of entertainment in Australia.”
Providing the ultimate HD viewing experience for subscribers, the Stan app on Xbox One will offer full voice support via Xbox Kinect so you can use voice controls to browse and play video.
