Is anyone here using Kayo Sports to stream sport? I’m keen to hear from anyone who’s used it.
Yep. Got a 30 day trial. Been watching a bunch of big bash and quality has been good. Don’t think I’ll sub as I probably wouldn’t use it enough to justify the price, though might see if any friends will split a sub. My one issue is the ads, I get that it’s just Foxtel streamed online but paying for a streaming service with ads seems counter intuitive.

Today it's -20 C in Toronto, but with the windchill(the opposite of humidex in summer), the actual feel is closer between -30 and -35. It's strange because it hasn't been this cold in a very, very long time(think pre-2000's) since winters here have been pretty mild for almost 20 years.

Maybe we should combine our -30 C with the near 50 C some parts of Australia has been experiencing, to get a perfect 20 C

:)

AusGAF, why in the fuck am I tempted by AC7? I have basically no interest in the franchise yet I'm curious to check it out.

I dont have it im still using main Foxtel, but i know Kayo is not 4K its 1080/50 depending on what you are streaming on. Foxtel dont have much in 4K anyway unless you are into cricket it looks great in 4K but its still a shit sport in my book.
Hm. I didn't realise they streamed some stuff in 1080/50, I wonder if that includes F1 as well? I've downloaded races at 50fps and they look so much better than regular broadcasts.

It’s great. On PS4 the pre-order bonus of an HD remaster of AC5 is huge too, I played it for the first time over the weekend and loved it. It still holds up as a great game, even if the ground detail is absolutely comical :)

I’m actually enjoying the AC7 MP too, which I really wasn’t expecting too. The matches are quick (5 minute timer) and fun:

They offer a free trial, so just wait until Melbourne (weekend of 17 Mar) and sign up. That’s basically what my friends and I are doing. If it’s no good, then nothing lost. If it’s good then we’ll keep the subscription.

i'm tempted too but waiting for sale price probs. i kinda want to see the vr as well
I haven’t tried it in VR yet, but I’m sure it’ll be amazing (but short). I bought a physical copy so I can try it on my friend’s PSVR :)

I'm waiting until the [email protected] plane skins arrive.



DEATH FROM ABOVE
No big flyable bombers this time around, so no huge canvases like the B-2. But the YF-23 and A-10C are still pretty damn big :)

This doesn't make it any easier.

Shit, I have Ace Combat 6 on 360 that I don't think I ever played. Maybe I should actually play that instead. Also have Assault Horizon on PC.

I similarly have had no interest in the series previously but have been tempted to jump in on AC7. Salty that I missed out on the AC5 bonus though, so don't have any reason to pay full retail at the moment!

Meanwhile, in Brisbane, I just had a meeting with a project manager who was wearing a cardigan because the aircon in this building is cranked up so high.

At least they put a jumper on for the greater good instead of fiddling with the A/C for their own preferred temperature or CCing the entire building a passive aggressive email that it's "too cold and if I get sick my kids will starve and die waaaaaaaaaaaaaa".

Fucking cunts.

Fuck I hate offices.

I can’t hate - dude was rocking that cardie like David Beckham in a pair of leather pants.

But yes, the air conditioning is a legitimate issue. It’s so uneven I’m sitting there with rolled up sleeves in the same meeting room.

How does the Feb for a Fiver deal work?
Kayo's Feb for a Fiver deal is the perfect chance for you to check out everything on Kayo and getting started is easy! All you need to do is sign up to Kayo's Basic Subscription (usually $25/month) between 28 Jan and 4 Feb, 2019 and you'll only be charged $5 for your first month.

For those looking at Kayo, deal on their front page.

Hmmmm. Shame that doesn't last until the start of the F1 season (or meaningful season of any other sport).

Only way to watch the ODIs at the moment is through Kayo/Foxtel.

Seven only got the Tests. Good thing they're the best part.

Like, I'd understand being upset if it was something like a Ted Bundyburger where they made it look like the decapitated form of a serial killer's victim or whatever, but "haha see we put a line of flour on top and named it after a drug kingpin" seems like something you'd either chuckle or groan and roll your eyes at and then move on with your day

It turns out that those cyclists were actually off-duty policemen (which is why one asked him to pull over for a chat). The Ute driver was “issued a future court attendance notice for using his phone while driving, offensive language, and for driving on the path.”
