If you've gone to YouTube to watch an unofficial upload of a TV episode, or even a single scene from your favourite anime, you've probably seen the weird things uploaders do to stop YouTube from taking down their videos.

When it comes to televisions, bigger isn't always better. Yes, if you have a huge living room then a giant TV is great. However, if your living room is on the smaller side, then you can end up in a situation where you're sitting way too close to that massive screen, even when you're technically sitting on the other side of the room.
Ever walked into one of those 'home cinema' showrooms? It's mad fun.

For decades, photo and video equipment was designed and tested with only white subjects in mind. Lighting darker skin tones takes a different approach than lighting pale ones. Ava Berkofsky, director of photography on HBO's Insecure, tells Mic how her team beautifully lights the show's black actors, and Mic reporter Xavier Harding demonstrates some of the techniques below.
Reporters at the Ten Network relayed the news of their employer’s voluntary administration, during a staff meeting. The network was looking to refinance to the tune of A$250 million, after its existing finance was due to expire on December 23.
But Ten’s directors said they were left no choice but to appoint administrators from KordaMentha to try to recapitalise or sell the business. To paraphrase Battlestar Galactica - which originally aired on Ten - all this has happened before, and it will probably happen again.
Channel Ten has gone into voluntary administration mere days after two billionaire shareholders backed out of guaranteeing more loans for the free-to-air network.
If you're a fan of popular Channel Ten shows like Neighbours, Survivor Australia, The Project, Masterchef, Offspring , The Bachelor and The Simpsons, you're probably wondering where this leaves viewers. Here's everything you need to know.
