What is Hubbl?

According to the creators, Hubbl is a streaming platform that aggregates content from third-party apps such as Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video and many more, giving Australian users access to thousands of hours of premium entertainment and sports. The platform allows you to manage all of your subscriptions in one place, without needing to have multiple logins and providers. According to Delaney, this process will simplify how users search and watch content, providing a better user experience.

“Hubbl will effortlessly fuse free and paid entertainment and sport from Australia’s favourite apps, channels, live TV and the internet into one seamless user experience,” Delaney said in a press release upon the launch. “Hubbl is only as good as the breadth and depth of apps integrated onto the platform to ensure a truly converged streaming experience and in removing frustration when it comes to the choice of what to watch. It’s a huge testament to the transformative Hubbl technology that these world-class and much-loved local partners have chosen to reshape the streaming experience with us. The future of TV and streaming is here.”

The Foxtel CEO also went on to reveal that while the new entertainment operating system is available as a small device that plugs into any compatible TV, new formats are already in the works. Hubbl is currently working on Hubbl Glass – a TV with Hubbl and a high-quality, built-in sound bar that only requires an internet connection and a power cord, no other wires.

Hubbl is powered by one remote with voice control that will allow you to find apps or channels, search for content, control playback, change settings and more. The universal remote also comes equipped with select app buttons at the top to navigate straight to Kayo Sports, BINGE and Netflix as well as a Watchlist (+) button to add content you want to watch later to your profile.

“Hubbl stands out from the pack by offering live TV without an aerial, seamless subscription management at the touch of a button, more discoverability and personalisation as well as allowing customers to stack up to five eligible streaming apps and save up to $15 per month on their subscriptions,” Les Wigan, managing director of Hubbl said. “With the major free and paid apps available on Hubbl and more to come, there is nothing like the world of entertainment it unlocks.”
