How to watch The Simpsons in Australia

The Simpsons, a dysfunctional, disconcertingly American family, have been keeping us alternatively amused and outraged for over 30 years. And as the world-famous animated sitcom prepares to launch its 31st season in 2020, where can you catch all those classic and future episodes of The Simpsons in Australia? We have good news.

Here’s how to watch The Simpsons in Australia

The Simpsons can be watched and streamed on a variety of platforms in Australia, including Disney+, Foxtel, Google Play, iTunes, and free-to-air channels Channel 10 and 7mate. However, for the sheer convenience of it, Disney+ could be the way to go.

The fast majority of the Simpsons catalogue, including 29 seasons, over 600 episodes and a feature-length film, is available to stream on Disney+. After criticism from some fans when the show was initially released to the platform, Disney+ has pledged to stream the first 19 seasons in the original 4:3 aspect ratio rather than 16:9 ratio made for widescreen televisions in 2020. If you’re not already a Disney+ subscriber, check out the plans below.

Sign up to Disney+ Australia

Disney+ is the new talk of the streaming world, so how can you get a subscription? There are two plan options to choose from – a monthly subscription at $8.99 per month, or prepay for a year at $89.99 and save on the monthly cost. Both plans include the same features, with unlimited downloads and the ability to stream on up to four screens at the same time. This table includes links to a referral partner.

The Simpsons on free-to-air TV

While free-to-air TV was once The Simpsons’ home in Australia, today only re-runs can be found on free-to-air channels. Channel 10 shows re-runs, as does 7Flix and 7mate, although it’s best to check your local TV guide to find out when to tune in.
