It is almost inevitable that Game Of Thrones season 8 will be subject to leaks and spoilers. It's a fate that befell the past few seasons, with top-secret scripts and even entire episodes appearing online before their maiden broadcast.

To quote another popular genre show: all this has happened before and all this will happen again. But as we enter Game Of Thrones' final season, it's more imperative than ever to avoid the leaks.

There has long been rumour of Apple starting its own video subscription service to challenge Netflix. Until recently, it had been lumped in the same speculative basket as Apple HDTVs and Apple self-driving cars.

Foxtel has changed the way it prices its streaming-only Foxtel Now service, and not for the better.

And Sport? Where once you could unlock it for $39 the minimum price is now $54 a month. Boooo.

This campaign is the biggest anti-piracy push in Australia's history - but are scare campaigns really the right way to prevent people from downloading? And how do the facts and figures actually stack up?
