We can bet there are still plenty of shows you haven’t ticked off in lockdown. Get streaming for free with hayu’s one-month free trial.
There’s no disputing that the English (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 the 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 is available in the UK, Ireland and several other European countries plus Australia, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and Phillippines.
On offer from hayu is 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.
hayu only streams reality TV content without genre options for drama, sports or documentaries to keep its prices cheaper than other streaming websites like Netflix or Now TV.
hayu charges £4.99/month for its service in the UK 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.
This service is 100% dedicated to the best and worst of reality television. From the Kardashians high life to every real housewife in every major city, you’ll find almost all of it on hayu. Follow the links below to find out more about what’s streaming on hayu.
Need a new show to binge watch or catch up on? Here’s the full list of shows on hayu.
However, for those who like their reality TV on the big screen, hayu can be streamed to Apple TV, Roku, Netgem, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Samsung Smart TV’s.
The hayu app also supports streaming content over Chromecast or Airplay to the big screen. However, if you’ve downloaded an episode of Made in Chelsea, you’ll need to watch it on your device.
You can also subscribe to hayu through existing subscription services Prime Video and Now TV.
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 upon 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.
If you’re after something the vain and vapid Vanderpumpers just can’t provide, your streaming options in the UK are growing by the day.
