New Australian Documentary Streaming Service Announced

The aptly titled DocPlay has officially launched for all documentary film fans in Australia and New Zealand, available on various devices.

The service from Madman Entertainment aims to offer a large catalogue of the best, specially curated documentary films from categories that include Art & Culture, Music, Science & Nature and Sports.

At this stage DocPlay features over 130 documentary films and is expected to grow exponentially in the future.

DocPlay also has over 20 Australian titles available, with a planned commitment to regularly add more locally made documentaries.

Some notable titles I found while perusing the selection include The Cove (2008), Blackfish (2013 – pictured above), Cocaine Cowboys (2006), Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010), Hoop Dreams (1994) and The House I Live In (2012) – all amazing must-see documentaries.

The service is available as a monthly premium subscription for $6.95 (or $69.95 annually), with full ad-free access to the films.

You can also subscribe to the service for free and access a hand-picked selection of films that will change on a regular rotation.

DocPlay is available from the official website (link below), with apps for iOS and Android.

Along with that access, users will be able to stream content to their TV’s via Chromecast and Airplay, with further platforms expected to come in 2017.

Check out the launch trailer for the service below and to view the entire catalogue and sign up, check out the official website here.
