AMPD Research estimates that Stan boasts about 1.4 million subscribers in Australia, compared with around 5.3 million for Netflix. Stan faces a number of headwinds, including a rise in programming costs as its existing content deals expire and the expected loss of its content deal with Disney as the US media giant prepares to launch its own subscription video-on-demand. Stan also faces the prospect of increased competition as other SVOD players enter the local market.
