Some things could make this a whole lot better
The content on this service is really good, it makes living in Australia a bit better so we can watch some of those shows that Netflix doesn’t want to supply for us.
However, reading other people’s reviews I have to agree with them - the sound cutting out is easily the most annoying thing aBout this app. At first I just thought it was something wrong with my phone, or the program I was watching but after using different headphones and different devices, it happens with everything. I’ve also found subtitles going out of sync and not fixing themselves, and only as I was rewinding the episodes to try and get it back in order I realised the subtitles were out was because it skipped a whole section of the show!
I would also like to see a rating service for the shows and reviews etc to help with making decisions on what to watch
Often glitchy and buggy - getting worse
The ‘check if I am still watching’ feature works but not much else. Every other episode it spins and does not load, then eventually when I get sick of waiting (sometimes I’ve left it spinning 30 plus minutes just to see what will happen) it gives an error about an expired session and needing to log back in. Shutting app down and restarting fixes it - usually though sometimes need to do this a couple of times. Also problem of it frequently saying I am not online, when I am and have no trouble with Netflix or using my browser etc, it is just STAN that seems incapable of detecting that there is a connection. All this since the latest update...which as best I can tell offered no improvements. App still doesn’t seem to be capable of letting you stop a show part way though and then resuming in the same place - a real nuisance and something Netflix gets right, I don’t bother watching movies because it is too annoying to find after pausing that I cannot restart without having to manually skip back to where I think I was. If it doesn’t get fixed in the next week or two I will be cancelling my subscription, no point having a streaming service that can’t work more than 40 mins without intervention. Sound has also started cutting out again with an annoying frequency. Very disappointing.

Hi there! When you get a chance, please update the Stan app on your iOS device. You should no longer experience issues with the "Are you still there" feature.
Ok, I guess...
The app is ok, but it has 1 huge problem. There is no option to limit steam quality to SD when on a cellular network. I don’t need HD when watching on a 5 inch screen while riding the train. I had to turn off cellular data half way through the month to avoid additional charges. I’ve never had that problem streaming content from any other source. Yes, you can download and watch offline, but most of the content that attracted me to Stan is not downloadable.
Stan seems like a pretty good service. There are problems with the streaming quality, even when at home on a solid wifi network. My daughter asked me to turn off Cars the other day because she couldn’t see anything LOL
I think Stan has excellent potential, they just need to improve their tech a little.
