Four-part HBO original documentary series Allen v. Farrow is turning a lot of heads at the moment. The production, which is the work of award-winning investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick & Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy, takes a deep look into one of Hollywood’s most notorious stories.
What’s the documentary series about?
In a statement on the news, Binge writes that the documentary covers:
“The accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then seven-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow; their subsequent custody trial, the revelation of Allen’s relationship with Farrow’s daughter, Soon-Yi; and the controversial aftermath in the years that followed.”
As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, Allen has long denied the claims and was not charged with any crimes, however, these events have followed the family since.
Where can I watch Allen v Farrow?
Foxtel and Binge are set to fast track the series of episodes to Australian televisions on Monday, February 22nd. If you don’t have a Binge subscription, you can sign up for the streaming service here .
Where to find the Allen v Farrow trailer?
The series is expected to be a raw and likely quite affecting look into a decades-long story, and the media coverage that surrounded it. HBO has released a trailer for the documentary that you can check out below:
While it’s yet to be seen by audiences world-wide, it’s expected this documentary series will gain a lot of attention once it has been released. The production is currently sitting at an 85 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and The Sydney Morning Herald has published an insightful piece on what to expect.
So, mark your calendars, friends. This is one to keep an eye out for.

HBO’s The Nevers might just be the next big TV show to obsess over. The 6-episode fantasy drama from HBO just debuted its first teaser and it looks mighty good. But a constant question in Australia is: how can we watch it?
Well, the good news is that there is a time and a place for The Nevers .
What is The Nevers about?
Before we get into how you can watch this great new show, allow us to tell you why you should watch this great new show.
The Nevers is created and produced by Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a producing team who has worked on shows such as Game of Thrones, Girls and The Defenders, so you already know you’re in for a good time.
Basically, the show is a fantasy drama set in the Victorian era, featuring a cast of people with supernatural abilities. Bridgerton with superheroes? Sign me up.
The synopsis for the show says:
In the last years of Queen Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the “Touched”: people – mostly women – who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities – some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True, a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair, a brilliant young inventor.
They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of… well, pretty much all the forces – to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place.
The show features a huge female cast including Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly, Olivia Williams, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens and Elizabeth Tomlinson. There’s also James Norton, Tom Riley and Nick Frost to look out for.
If you need more reasons to watch, check out the trailer for The Nevers below:

There’s no denying Australia’s streaming market has gotten a whole lot more crowded over the years. While each service isn’t that expensive individually, once you bundle up all the options, it gets pretty ridiculous. For anyone wanting a piece of all the exclusive content all the time, that’s very bad news.
But that’s not all. In addition to all of the above, there are smaller, more niche services like Hayu , Shudder , 10 All Access and YouTube Premium — all of which contain original programming you can’t watch anywhere else.
The age of streaming changed all that and now we have more access to shows and movies than we ever really bargained for. Sadly, a lot of that content is siphoned off as exclusives to one of various streaming services available locally.
In the interest of public service journalism, we decided to crunch the numbers for you to better understand what it’ll cost to subscribe to every streaming service in Australia. (Spoiler: It’s a lot.)
How much does Netflix, Stan, Disney+, Binge and Amazon Prime Video cost in Australia?
Let’s say you want to join all the major services on the cheapest price available. A Netflix Basic account is now $10.99 after a recent price hike , Stan and Binge cost $10 , Disney+ ‘s price is $8.99 (although it also receive a price hike to $11.99 from February 23rd, 2021), while Amazon Prime Video is $6.99 . That’s $46.97 per month . Adding in Apple for $7.99 will bring the total up to $54.96 .
So, it’s nearly $55 per month to join each service if you want to watch content for days.
Those basic subscriptions on Stan or Netflix, however, only let you use a single screen at once and don’t come with basic HD, which is a pretty average offering in 2020. You’ll likely want to upgrade. So, while the rest of the subscriptions will stay the same, upgrading Netflix, Binge and Stan to the mid-tier offering will add another $13. Now, you’re at $67.96 .
For the sake of this example, let’s get the top offering on those three so tack on another $13 to that figure — $80.96 . But that figure isn’t including Foxtel, which has multiple add-on packs and additional content to Binge. If you were to add on every pack, including drama, kids, sports, docos and movies, it goes from its $25 basic plan to a colossal $104 per month. Adding that onto your monthly figure and you’re now at $184.96 .
Again, it’s not really likely you’ll have both Binge and Foxtel but let’s say for argument’s sake, you want everything you can possibly get in Australia legally.
How much do the other streaming services cost?
That’s just the major streaming options. Hayu is $6.99 , Shudder is $6.99 , 10 All Access is $9.99 per month, Crunchyroll starts at $7.99 and YouTube Premium is $14.99 . Getting even more niche, there’s also Acorn TV at $6.99 , DocPlay is $6.95 , iwonder at $6.99 as well as BritBox at $8.99 , a BBC-backed streaming service that launched in late November last year.
Let’s say you want a dosage of reality TV with Hayu, some horror titles with Shudder, a bit of it all with 10 All Access, anime favourites on Crunchyroll, British television on Acorn TV, YouTube’s best offerings with Premium and you choose one of the documentary services, DocPlay or iwonder. You’ll basically be securing yourself access to most of it and likely a whole more you can ever possibly chew on.
All of that costs around $60.93 . You guessed it, let’s add that to our exorbitant figure, including Foxtel, and you’ll have yourself a monthly bill of $245.89 . Feels reminiscent of the days of cable television and then some.
There are others not included in this list because there is simply too much to take into account. Various sport subscriptions for football and US sports fans will also jack up the price and offer niche streaming services exist. The point is there’s a lot and that figure will only rise as more are introduced into Australia.
Of course, it’s not likely you’ll join all these services at once but with them all offering juicy exclusive shows in order to grab your attention and your money, it’s going to be tough to prioritise.
Thankfully, most of the services allow you to stream with multiple screens at once meaning you can share the cost (hopefully) with friends or family, bringing a $10 per month service down to $5 or $2.50 in an ideal world.Personally, I have a subscription to the major ones but I share that cost with someone else. After signing up during promo specials, my monthly bill isn’t too bad, which is pretty great given the amount of content I can access.
When other services are introduced, however, I’ll have to consider whether signing up to those is tipping the scales too far.We’re still getting more content than ever before, but as we start reaching similar costs to cable TV prices, have we lost the point of introducing affordable streaming in the first place? Share your thoughts in the comments.
This article has been updated with the latest round of streaming services to be introduced in Australia.
