Stream your favourite reality TV shows with hayu
hayu is a niche streaming service catering to a specific audience with a taste for the drama-fuelled world of reality television.
There’s no disputing that people from Hong Kong (and the rest of the world) have an overwhelming love affair with what’s been dubbed “reality TV”. These shows promise an “unscripted” look at the lives and trials of everyone from the rich and famous to regular, unknown people.
While reality TV is a mainstay for free-to-air and pay TV services, its popularity led to the arrival of a streaming service dedicated to the genre. hayu has over 6,000 episodes across 200 downloadable shows to watch on the go.
What’s more, it offers same-day access to new episodes of popular shows as soon as they air in the US. That means no more waiting around for the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
How much does hayu cost?
hayu only streams reality TV content without genre options for drama, sport or documentaries to keep its prices cheaper than other streaming websites like Netflix.
hayu charges HK$40 for its service in Hong Kong with a no-lock-in contract. There’s also a 30-day free trial for new users, which is useful to explore whether you think the service fits your entertainment needs.
How do I access hayu?
If you’re familiar with streaming services like Prime Video or Netflix, hayu will be instantly familiar. If this is your first streaming service or you’re still a bit lost, here is what to do:
- Go to the hayu website and fill in your account details.
- Watch your shows from the hayu website or download the hayu app on your Apple or Android device. Keep in mind the app requires that you have at least iOS 9.0 or Android 4.4 (KitKat) to download.
- Sign in on your device.
- Enjoy the latest reality TV shows.

What is hayu’s streaming quality?
hayu can deliver your daily dose of Kardashians in different streaming qualities up to HD, depending on your Internet connection. Like many similar services, hayu uses adaptive streaming technology to maximise the viewing experience based on your connection speed and the device you’re using to watch.
However, unlike some other streaming services there’s no way to manually set the stream quality while watching on a mobile device. For users with low data allowances on their mobile plans, this can be potentially dicey.
hayu does offset this by offering the ability to download episodes to your mobile or tablet devices for offline viewing. Videos are available to download to your device in either SD (approximately a 300MB download) or HD (about 700MB).
You can download a maximum of 25 shows at a time, after which you must either delete a selection or wait 30 days for your download list to purge expired episodes in order to get more.
hayu trial offerhayu offers a free 30-day trial for you to try out the features and see whether hayu offers shows that you like before purchasing a plan. If hayu’s content fails to meet your desires and expectations, its no-lock-in contracts mean you can cancel anytime.
Which devices can I use to access hayu?
You can access hayu via a dedicated iOS or Android app on your mobile device or on the web through a compatible browser. You will need at least iOS 9.0 or Android 4.4 (KitKat) to use the app on your smartphone or tablet.
However, for those who like their reality TV on the big screen, hayu will have to be watched via Amazon Fire TV or Android TV.
