Australians Aren't Afraid Of The Copyright Police, Game Of Thrones Piracy Boom Shows

Local pirates clearly aren’t trying too hard to cover their tracks, with a hefty slice of Game of Thrones season premiere downloads traced back to Australia.

Once again Game of Thrones has smashed records in Australia, with this week’s Season 6 premiere attracting 727,000 viewers on Foxtel to become the most-watched show in Australian subscription television history. That’s a 30 per cent jump on last year, before you even count Foxtel Play streaming viewers, but not everyone wanting to learn the fate of Jon Snow decided to do the right thing.

I Refuse To Feel Guilty For Torrenting Game Of Thrones

One year ago my brother in-law and I made a decision. We wanted to do the right thing. We wanted to try and pay to watch Game of Thrones season 5.

We wanted to try and pay to watch Game of Thrones.

We couldn’t just pay. We had to try to pay.

No Prizes For Guessing That Yesterday's Game Of Thrones Premiere Broke Australian TV Records

Foxtel wins our award for most unsurprising press release of late April: yesterday’s sixth season premiere of Game of Thrones was the most watched program in Australian television history, toppling the previous season’s audience figures — where are all these new viewers coming from? — and even beating a sport for overall popularity.

For customers who sign up to Foxtel Play between 18 April and 29 April, you will be able add “Premium Movies and Drama” (with access to Showcase and HBO) to your first $25 a month “genre pick” for $5 extra a month, for the first three months.

The Expanse: The Best New Sci-Fi You Can't Watch In Australia

The Expanse is a sci-fi series that respects space. In the show — and in real life — space is huge, empty, and deadly; it’s a massive gap of nothingness in between tiny pockets of humanity and activity.

It’s a great show, based on a great series of novels. I actually think it’s one of the best sci-fi shows in years. But Foxtel’s Aussie SyFy channel strangely doesn’t seem keen on showing it, so we might not even get to see it in Australia at all.

Foxtel Might Be Adding Netflix To Its Upcoming Streaming Service

With over a million subscribers, Netflix has firmly established itself as the content streaming service in Australia, and Foxtel is taking notice.
