Did you know that 75% of people who pirate online have experienced a cyber security issue?* That’s a whopping 6.3 million Aussies who have been impacted by malware, fraud, lost or exposed their personal details, or had their device hacked**.  

There really is a plethora of legal content online that you can enjoy at your leisure, most of them have flexible payment options which allow you to dip in, and dip out, and many are free, thanks to Australia’s robust free-to-air offering.

If you’re wondering why it matters? Just remember that if you love to watch film and TV then watching it via legal platforms will ensure creators get paid and can continue bringing you the content you love.

Do you need a little help finding something to watch? Try one of these sites:

Just Watch aggregates all of the legal online content services in one app. What sets Just Watch apart is the intuitive user experience, with personal recommendations and an easy to maintain watch list for films and TV shows. Users can create watch lists and track content they want to watch across streaming and buy/rent.
