Namedrop Ms. Chanandler Bong or Princess Consuela Banana Hammock in any conversation and you’ll be hard pressed finding someone who doesn’t know what you’re talking about, and you can thank iconic 90s sitcom Friends for that. Officially premiering 26 years ago, the show about six friends living in New York remains a cult classic to this day, with plenty of memorable quotes, antics and scenarios to keep the show close to our hearts.

You may have done a Ross and Rachel and taken a break from the show in recent years, but you can officially title this ‘The One Where Australia Can Watch Friends On Multiple Streaming Platforms’ because we’ve got some news for you. All 10 seasons and 236 episodes of the sitcom are heading to both Netflix and newcomer BINGE on September 17.

Could this BE any more exciting?

How to watch Friends in Australia

Currently, Friends is available to watch through iTunes, although come September 17 you’ll be able to catch Friends on Netflix and BINGE as well, with all 10 seasons and 236 episodes available across all platforms.

Watch Friends on BINGE

Foxtel’s streaming sister BINGE is finding its footing in the competitive world of on-demand television, but more shows and movies are being added by the day. It’s a pretty big win for them to snatch up Friends, and you’ll be able to stream all ten seasons on the platform in September.

With Netflix’s September 17 price increase, it’s also important to note that a BINGE subscription is now the cheapest way to, well, binge Friends anytime, anywhere in Australia. A standard BINGE subscription begins at $10 per month, while Netflix’s basic plan is now $10.99 monthly. If you’d prefer to stream in HD, you’ll pay a minimum of $14 per month on a BINGE plan, and $15.99 per month with Netflix.

Sign up to BINGE

If BINGE’s huge library of quality movies sounds like the perfect streaming service for you, there are three plans to choose from, with different inclusions on each plan tier. Prices start at $10 per month for a basic package and go up to $18 per month. Check out the plan inclusions in the below table. This table includes links to a referral partner.
