Reality streaming service hayu is teeming with some of the sauciest shows streaming at the moment. Like any streaming video-on-demand service, the pitch seems so simple: sign up for a free trial and begin streaming on your preferred device. If only it were that easy.
If you’re having trouble keeping up with the latest technologies and streaming services, getting it all set up can be a bit of a headache (but nowhere near as stressful as booking an installation with your cable provider). To help start your streaming engines, we’ve created an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to set up hayu on every compatible device.
Check this list to ensure you have a hayu-compatible device:
Go to the . The good news is that you’ll be automatically redirected to the region you’re currently in, so don’t worry about typing in the absolutely correct URL. Now that you’re on the hayu website, you need to click the big pink “Register” button in the upper right of your screen.
Why even lay your money down before you know if hayu is worth it? Make use of the 30-day trial period to see if the service sits right with your expectations.
You can sign up either using your existing Facebook account or a combination of an email address, first and last name and designated password. Be sure to tick the “I am over 18 box” and the “I agree to hayu’s terms and conditions”. The basic gist of what you’re agreeing to is that if you don’t manually cancel your trial inside of the 30-day period, hayu will automatically start to charge you $6.99 a month (the standard rate of the service). Which is what the next step is all about.
It doesn’t really matter if you’re a returning or brand new hayu member – you’ll need to enter the details of a major credit card or your PayPal account to proceed. Once again, there’s no binding contract here. You can quit any time. We’d recommend setting a calendar alarm on your phone to remind you to (maybe) pull the plug in, say, 28 days.
The credit card option is self-explanatory. Enter your digits and be sure to input your name as it appears on that lovely piece of plastic. Folks who go the PayPal route will have a separate portal window open up where they’ll need to enter their PayPal specific username and password, then select the method of how they want PayPal to siphon the required funds to hayu.
Once payment is complete, you’ll be taken to the Subscriptions area of the hayu site. There’ll be a receipt on-screen that indicates that you’ve been signed up and charged ($0 at present) to get your free trial. You can jot down the order reference number, just in case. Alternatively, wait half a second and a hayu email with the same said details will appear in the inbox of the email address you specified.
All done. You’re ready to get your binge-watch on!
Hayu uses a decent amount of security during the payment process. Just thought we’d mention that, as we know that some users are apprehensive when feeding their financial details into the Internet.
Let’s try to cover all of the bases here.
In a short while, the hayu icon will appear in your Apps section. You may as well relocate a shortcut of it to your Home screen (tap and hold your finger on the app, then drag it to where you want it, then release). Once this is done, click on the hayu icon and enter the sign-up details you previously decided upon back on the hayu website.
Hopefully, you’ve followed all the above steps and you’re staring at the vast delights of hayu’s library of TV shows and movies. Finding what you want to watch is a cinch, too – just tap the magnifying glass icon, type in a few letters and hayu will do its best to match you with the title it thinks you’re after. You can even narrow the search by clicking through the categories that all hayu content is divided up into (Shows, Episodes, Snippets, Extras, Coming Soon, Playlists and Stories).

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
