Release is vague wether this will be FTA or SVOD, assuming it’ll air on both at some point but given they already have the Betoota Advocate show (very different concepts I’m sure, but seem vaguely similar by way of a comedy duo of sorts) for P+ my guess is this’ll be FTA first and then available to catch up on streaming.

Any A-League Finals Series without the Jets isn’t worth watching. :rofl:

Might just be me, but doesn’t seem like a heck of a lot of new content the last few months. Might just be perception, but scrolling through there and seeing the highlights there’s not much to be excited about - other than new Five Bedrooms which is well overdue.

Also, they’ve commissioned so many original series for the service and it seems a bit bare to date this year except for Last King of the Cross.

Yellowjackets has new episodes and is getting a reasonable promotional push.
