Dear Lifehacker, I know Foxtel doesn’t always show fully-uncut films on its movie channels. I’m wondering whether it also trims “inappropriate” content from TV shows? The reason I ask is because Game of Thrones is classified R18+ on DVD but only MA15+ on Foxtel’s Showcase channel. What’s going on? Is Foxtel editing the episodes to attain a lower rating?
Foxtel has announced an aggressive new pricing strategy that will see subscription prices drop by as much as 50 per cent in November. The major pricing revamp coincides with a new IQ3 video recorder and the announcement of a “triple play” bundle that will combine television, broadband and home phone services into a single package. Here’s an overview of the new packages and services.
When it launched back in March, Foxtel’s no-contract streaming movies service Presto cost $19.99. From Sunday, that price will drop to $9.99 a month.
When the Chromecast streaming dongle officially launched in Australia in May, we were promised that Foxtel’s Presto movie service would add Chromecast support in July and add a dedicated Android app. And now that has happened.
If you’re a fan of both the Game Of Thrones TV show and the fantasy books it is based on, we have some troubling news for you. Yesterday, Season 4 officially crossed over into uncharted territory, revealing plot details and characters that have yet to show up in the actual books (George R. R. Martin is still in the process of writing them y’see). You now have the unenviable choice of spoiling future books or blacklisting the TV show entirely.
