Downloadable content is being introduced in March by Australian streaming service Stan to enable subscribers to view TV shows and films offline.

Stan Screen Shot Feb 2017The decision follows a similar move by rival subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) provider Netflix in November 2016.

Sherlock, the new Twin Peaks, the Jim Carrey comedy-drama I’m Dying Up Here, Billions, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Mozart In The Jungle and Transparent will be among the digital content available for subscribers to download.

In addition, Stan is commissioning another season of Wolf Creek and a six-part stand-up comedy series One Night Stan. New seasons of Unreal and The Girlfriend Experience will also be carried on the platform, operated as a joint venture between Australia’s Fairfax Media and Nine Entertainment.

Stan will also start streaming 4K content, beginning with Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad in April. Ultra HD content can be watched on the 2015 and 2016 model Samsung and LG TVs, and the PlayStation 4 Pro console.

The news comes shortly after Stan announced a boost to its children’s content, sealing a deal to bring Turner’s Cartoon Network to the SVOD service. It already offers children’s shows from Nickelodeon, ABC for Kids and Roadshow.
