This week, we’re taking a TV break — but what shall we watch? In the past, the answer would have been “whatever’s on the broadcast channels”, but we no longer live in 1982, thank you very much. In 2022, more Australians are watching streaming subscription services than free to air TV — but what does that mean for the future of broadcast TV, streaming TV and Australian content? We catch up with TV Blackbox’s Steve Molk to discuss TV’s past and future!

Meanwhile, many Australians grapple with their choice of telco — so which one should you choose? It’s not a matter of just picking the best “price” or opting purely for one of the big three telcos — or is it? We chat to ZDNet Australia’s Chris Duckett to dissect what goes into making a truly appealing phone plan.
