hayu is a streaming service designed to cater to a particular niche audience. Rather than compete with services like Netflix, Stan and Presto, it fills a gap for those who rely on reality TV to get their fix. Its impressive back catalogue and the fact that new episodes appear online just a few hours after they air in the US make it an appealing option for fans of programmes such as Below Deck, The Real Housewives, the Kardashians and more.
However, it's not without its flaws. Many customers report issues with the app, such as it forgetting where they left off on a show and not logging them out after a while. Some also experience problems with streaming HD content. 4K isn't supported at all, so if you want to watch your Kardashians in pixel perfect quality, this may not be the service for you. It's also worth pointing out that you can only stream in one location at a time - so if your family shares the same account, you may find it frustrating if they all want to watch different programmes at the same time.
Despite this, the service offers a good value deal for anyone looking for a way to keep up with American reality TV shows. Plus, the subscription is cheaper than many of its competitors. Its free trial is only seven days, though, which can be a drawback for some people. However, it's well worth checking out if you're a fan of American "guilty pleasure" programmes and love watching rich girls bicker over their money.
