Foxtel gives us a new way to binge

Just when you thought we had enough streaming options
  • Foxtel releases their latest effort in trying to stop you from watching Netflix or Disney plus instead.
  • It’s called, appropriately, Binge and it is being launched today (25th May 2020)
  • So why might you use Binge instead of the other current streaming platforms? Well interestingly enough it will include over 10,000 hours of local and international drama and movies from Warner Bro’s, HBO, HBO Max, Sony NBCU, FX and the BBC.
  • It will include over 800 movies as well
  • The starter pack starts at $10 per month, in line with most other platforms and can go all the way up to $18 for up to 4 simultaneous screens. No 4K content at launch, or planned according to Foxtel
  • The app will be available on all smart phones, and through some smart tvs. If you have a Telstra box, lucky you, also that will stream to it. If you have an Apple TV, you are out of luck for a native app, but you can utilise Airplay and Chromecast to get your content on one of those devices.
  • Not convinced? You get a free two week trial to change your mind…or binge Game of Thrones. Good luck.

Is this iOS 13 Bug happening to you?

This, is not my hand
  • Have problems since iOS 13.5 came out last week? You aren’t alone.
  • I’ve noticed some strange bugs when connecting chargers across my devices, but it’s been an issue for a long time before iOS 13.
  • This specific bug is popping up when people try and load certain apps.
  • If you see a message box saying “This app is no longer shared with you. To use it, you must buy it from the App Store.” then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
  • The good news is that it’s most likely linked to an iCloud issue, and that it can be patched by them without needing a new update.
  • The bad news is that it’s super annoying, and that the fix is a pain in the rear.
  • To fix this issue the best way is to delete the app and re-install it. I know. It’s not groundbreaking, but it should fix your issues.

Time for Xbox to flex

X-Boxy
  • All Xbox fans around the world had a chance to unclench their butt cheeks over the weekend after Xbox released some in-game footage of its upcoming Series X console.
  • Last week PS5 had their chance to show off their muscles with Unreal Engine 5 showing off some in-game footage of an upcoming title.
  • This time round Xbox had its turn, and producing some nice looking in-game footage, albeit, very quickly cut together footage, to show exactly what we will be install for later this year.
  • I’m undecided till we see exactly what titles are on offer later on in the year, but I suspect that they are going to be neck and neck as they have been over the last few generations.
