Get your free trial
Feast your eyes on countless binge-worthy shows and must-see movies with hayu’s free trial. T&Cs apply.
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 official hayu website. 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 hayu free trial 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 in time, hayu will automatically start to charge you £4.99 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. 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).
