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?
When it comes to the ease of streaming entire TV series, I think many of us can attest to experiencing “just one more episode” syndrome. If you can’t seem to stop your TV show streaming marathon, learning about the plot lines that hook you in can help you break away and get some decent sleep.
The AFL grand final is this weekend; the NRL follows the weekend after. That means for two weeks in a row Australians will be forced to watch key sporting events in standard definition (SD) broadcasts, despite every free-to-air network having an HD channel. Digital TV is universal now, so why aren’t these major events available in HD?
When the Chromecast streaming dongle from Google officially launched in Australia back in May, we were told that apps to enable easy streaming of the ABC’s excellent iView catch-up service was in development. Looks like that development work is almost done.
Hey Lifehacker, When will Australian free-to-air channels start using their HD channels as their main channel? I am really sick of watching major sporting events on the main networks channels on SD when they are showing Seinfeld (for example) on the HD channel. It just does not make sense. Any insights?
