Over at our sibling site Gizmodo, there's a great guest post exploring just how many major Australian organisations have policies that forbid you to link to their web sites. Well worth a read — there can't be many better examples of a policy that is actively flouted all the time by pretty much everyone. [Gizmodo]

There are currently four main streaming services in Australia: Netflix, Stan, Foxtel Now and Amazon Prime Video. There's also Apple TV+ and - in a few short days - Disney Plus. But that's not all. In addition to all of the above, there are smaller, more niche services like Hayu, 10 All Access and YouTube Premium - all of which contain original programming you can't watch anywhere else.

It will also be the only place to (legally) watch the first live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. But these aren't the reasons we're excited. Disney Plus has another ace up its sleeve - and it could be the deciding factor that gets you to subscribe.
