And just like that … Australian streaming service Binge has finally made its long-awaited console debut, with the app now available for download on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
Streamotion’s Binge service first landed on the Australian streaming scene in May 2020, when the company revealed it was working on an app for PlayStation consoles. Well, it might have taken longer than expected, but Binge has actually kept his promise.
The service has arrived on PlayStation consoles just in time for HBO’s highly anticipated second season of Euphoria, which hits Binge on January 10, and the upcoming spinoff series of Suicide Squad Peacemaker, which is slated for release on January 13.
Is Xbox support coming next?
While mainstream thought would suggest that an Xbox version of the Binge streaming app is next on Streammotion’s agenda, we won’t be holding our breath in the wait.
As we mentioned earlier, a Binge app for PlayStation consoles was announced over a year and a half ago when the service launched and has only seen the light of day now. And, at the time, no mention was made of an Xbox version in the works.
Oddly enough, Streammotion’s Foxtel app was previously available for the latest generation Xbox One consoles, but has since disappeared from the Xbox store. This makes us think that licensing issues are likely the culprit behind Streammotion’s Xbox crash.
Of course, that doesn’t mean we’ll never see Binge on Xbox consoles – the Help Center for Streamotion’s streaming service Kayo indicates that an Xbox app is currently part of its development roadmap, so it stands to reason that there may also be plans to bring Binge to Xbox at some point.
