What to stream this week on Telstra TV

By Ryan Dunn September 24, 2021

This month, level up with a blockbuster movie, go beneath the surface with a new crime drama and get the family together for a heartwarming return on Telstra TV.

Free Guy (Disney+ and Telstra TV Box Office)

Level up and save the world with FREE GUY, streaming from Wednesday 29 September on Disney+ and available to buy on Telstra TV Box Office. Ryan Reynolds stars as Guy – just an average bank teller, living his best life amongst the chaos of Free City alongside his best friend, security guard Buddy (played by Lil Rel Howery). But when the bank is held up and Guy breaks free from his programming, game coder Millie a.k.a. Molotov Girl (played by Jodie Comer) reveals that he’s actually just a background character inside a video game – one that’s about to be deleted by its supposed creator, Antwan (Taika Waititi). Determined to be the hero of his own story, it’s now up to Guy to help Millie save the game – and the citizens of Free City – before it’s too late.

Vigil (BINGE)

From the team behind the hit British crime drama Line of Duty comes the captivating new series, VIGIL – streaming now on BINGE. Set mostly within the claustrophobic confines of a fictional Royal Navy nuclear submarine, the HMS Vigil, Suranne Jones stars as whip smart, no-nonsense police detective Amy Silva – who is helicoptered aboard to investigate the suspicious death of Chief Petty Officer, Craig Burke (played by Martin Compston). With the vessel on active duty patrolling the Scottish coastline, Vigil is unable to return to base. But as the case quickly becomes a murder inquiry, Silva finds herself up against a tight-lipped crew and an obstructive Naval hierarchy – helped only by fellow detective Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie) searching for clues back on dry land.

Back to the Rafters (Amazon Prime Video)

Australia’s favourite TV family is reunited this month in BACK TO THE RAFTERS, with an all-new streaming home on Amazon Prime Video. We find Dave, Julie and Ruby are enjoying country life in the town of Buradeena. When they travel to Sydney to celebrate Dave and Julie’s 35th wedding anniversary, everyone finds themselves having to once again bunk together under one roof, this time at Ben’s two bedroom house. The visit reminds Julie just how much she misses being with her family, but Dave is intent on staying in Buradeena. What will this mean for Australia’s favourite Mum and Dad? As Nathan adjusts to being a single dad, Ben and new wife Cassie struggle with starting a family, and Rachel lives with a secret in New York – coming together again might be exactly what they all need to help each other through.

American Rust (Paramount+)

Based on the novel of the same name by Philipp Meyer is the gripping new drama series, AMERICAN RUST – streaming now on Paramount+. Set in the desolate fictional rust-belt town of Buell, Pensylvania, where job opportunities are nonexistent and drug-related deaths are commonplace, Jeff Daniels stars as Police Chief Del Harris – who finds himself in a difficult position when a murder he’s investigating seems to implicate Billy, the son of the woman he loves – played by Maura Tierney. Desperate to leave, Billy and his best friend Isaac plan to stowaway aboard freight trains to escape across country. But the case, and the choices they all make in an attempt to cover it up, threaten to expose many of the town’s dark secrets – and destroy what little sense of community Buell still has left.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 13 September:

Reminiscence (Telstra TV Box Office)


Hugh Jackman stars in the spellbinding sci-fi mystery, REMINISCENCE – available now via Express Release on Telstra TV Box Office. Set in a not too distant future where climate change has ravaged the Earth and people are nostalgic for better times, Jackman plays memory guide Nick Bannister – who hypnotically helps his clients relive their past thanks to a one-of-a-kind holographic device and his business partner, Watts (Thandiwe Newton). But when he falls in love with a client, lounge singer Mae (Rebecca Ferguson) and she subsequently disappears, he becomes obsessed with diving back into his own memories – desperately searching for any clues that might help him uncover what happened to her.

The Newsreader (ABC iview)


Stream all six episodes of the impeccable Australian period drama, THE NEWSREADER, from this Sunday 19 September on ABC iview. The year is 1986 and the News At Six team are frantically working behind the scenes to break the latest stories to the Australian public – from Halley’s Comet, to Lindy Chamberlain’s release from gaol and the developing AIDS crisis. On the desk is the captivatingly talented Helen Norville (Anna Torv), often dismissed by threatened veteran co-anchor Geoff Walters (Robert Taylor) and berated by gruff newsroom boss Lindsay Cunningham (William McInnes). Determined to become a newsreader himself, reporter Dale Jennings (Sam Reid) is paired with Helen to produce a feature piece – ultimately bringing the two closer together than anticipated and setting office tongues wagging.

The Premise (BINGE, Foxtel Now)


If you enjoyed Black Mirror and it’s entertainingly insightful deep-dive into the moral questions of our time, then you’ll want to check out brand new anthology series, THE PREMISE – streaming weekly from 9pm this Friday 17 September on BINGE and Foxtel Now. Through a series of often humorous and slightly uncomfortable situations, the series tackles issues such as social justice, gun violence, fame and online identity across five standalone episodes starring Ben Platt, Tracee Ellis Ross, Lucas Hedges, Daniel Dae Kim and Jon Bernthal. From police corruption caught in the background of an intimate home movie, to a popstar vowing to give back to his high school by sleeping with the top graduating student – and a successful CEO getting revenge on his childhood bully, each instalment offers a surprising take on today’s hot-button topics.

The Masked Singer Australia (10 play)


Australia’s favourite guessing game is back for its third insanely fun season this week: THE MASKED SINGER AUSTRALIA is streaming now on 10 play. Get ready to sing your heart out and rack your brains, as you try to decipher which special celebrity guest is beneath each elaborate costume – delivering knockout performances of hits from the Village People, The Proclaimers, Donna Summer, the Divinyls and more. Guess along with the hosting panel of Jackie O, Dave Hughes, Dannii Minogue and Urzila Carlson as they attempt to solve exactly who is delivering a flawless performance of Fly Away by Tones and I dressed as a toilet roll dolly, or Harry Styles’ Watermelon Sugar as a life-sized pavlova. When the big reveal comes, will you win bragging rights for guessing correctly – or be totally shocked by just how wrong you were? Tune in to find out.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 7 September:

The Ice Road (Telstra TV Box Office)

Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburne star in the heart-stopping new action thriller, THE ICE ROAD – available now via Express Release on Telstra TV Box Office. When a methane explosion causes the collapse of an isolated diamond mine in Winnipeg, Canada, skilled ice-road trucker Mike McCann (Neeson) and his mechanic brother Gurty (Marcus Thomas) are offered a lucrative but treacherous gig to join the rescue mission convoy. Joining mission leader Goldenrod (Fishburne), expert driver Tantoo (Amber Midthunder) and insurance company rep Varnay (Benjamin Walker), their job is to haul three enormous wellheads to the mine site across 500km of already thawing ice with a colossal storm on the way. They’ll need to do it in under 30 hours or else the miners will run out of what little air they have remaining. And if all that wasn’t enough to contend with, it seems someone among them is sabotaging the mission.

Impeachment: American Crime Story (BINGE)

Following two Emmy-winning seasons for ‘The People v. O. J. Simpson’ and ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ comes the third riveting instalment of Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed anthology series, AMERICAN CRIME STORY – streaming now on BINGE. Titled ‘Impeachment’, this season the 10-part series focuses on the events surrounding the Bill Clinton – Monica Lewinsky sex scandal. Telling the story from the perspective of the women at the centre of the turmoil, Beanie Feldstein stars as Monica Lewinsky – thrust into the spotlight when her supposed friend and confidant, disgruntled White House staffer Linda Tripp (played by a one-again transformed Sarah Paulson) leaks tapes of their private conversations about the young woman’s involvement with the president (Clive Owen). Annaleigh Ashford plays Paula Jones, who is pressured to sue Clinton for exposing himself to her years earlier – while Edie Falco stars as then first lady Hillary Clinton.

The Bite (Paramount+)

For a zombie apocalypse series with an almost too-close-to-home comedic twist, check out THE BITE – streaming now on Paramount+. Confined to her home during the current pandemic, New York City GP Rachel (played by Audra McDonald) continues to treat her needy and neurotic patients via telehealth video calls. When she’s not dealing with accidentally muted microphones or being criticised for the decor in her background, Rachel is bumbling through a troubled long-distance marriage to Zach (Steven Pasquale) – also a doctor, posted to work on the CDC Taskforce in Washington DC. So when Rachel begins to see a strange viral mutation developing amongst her patients, causing them to take on zombie-like behaviour, she tries to raise the alarm with Zach. Meanwhile, Rachel’s upstairs neighbour Lily (Taylor Schilling) is a high-end dominatrix, trying to stay afloat by performing online. But when she invites a long-term client into her home, it’s not long before she notices there’s something very wrong with him.

Mum (BritBox)

New to BritBox this month is the heartwarming family sitcom, MUM – with all three seasons available to stream now in full. Lesley Manville stars as Cathy, a recently widowed woman on the verge of sixty, facing the next chapter of her life with the help (and often hindrance) of her well-meaning extended family and friends. Her son Jason adored his dad and isn’t keen on the idea of his mother moving on, which is tough because old family friend Michael (Peter Mullan) now finally has the chance to come clean after half a lifetime of loving Cathy from the sidelines. Jason’s dim-witted girlfriend Kelly (Lisa McGrillis) has her heart in the right place – while Cathy’s oaf of a brother Derek (Ross Boatman) and his snobbish but very quotable partner Pauline (Dorothy Atkinson) bring even more of the laughs as the polar opposite to the patiently soft-spoken and kindhearted Cathy.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 30 August:

The Suicide Squad (Telstra TV Box Office)

Get set for the insanely gory, intensely fast-paced and incredibly hilarious Express Release of THE SUICIDE SQUAD, available now on Telstra TV Box Office. When the fate of the world is thrown into peril by Project Starfish, a sinister experiment being conducted deep within the jungles of South American island nation Corto Maltese, ARGUS Director Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) assembles a group of the world’s baddest super-villains to find and eliminate an even greater threat. Led by Colonel Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), their ragtag team includes Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior), Blackguard (Pete Davidson), King Shark (voiced by Sylvester Stallone) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Facing deadly adversaries at every turn, the odds of survival are stacked against them. But the future of humanity rests in their lethally destructive hands.

Cinderella (Amazon Prime Video)

Camila Cabello leads an all-star cast in this magnificent modern take on the musical fairytale classic, CINDERELLA – streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Cabello stars as downtrodden seamstress Ella, with dreams of one day opening her own fashion boutique to feature the dresses she lovingly crafts in her basement bedroom. When the King (Pierce Brosnan) and Queen (Minnie Driver) hold a ball to find a bride for their son, Prince Robert (Nicholas Galitzine), Ella gets to work designing a gown that will showcase her talents – until she’s forbidden to attend by her vile stepmother Vivian, played by Tony Award winner Idina Menzel. But when her Fabulous Godmother (Billy Porter) sprinkles some magic her way, it’s not long before she’s off dazzling the entire kingdom – and the future king.

Only Murders in the Building (Disney+)

New to Disney+ this week is the charmingly funny murder mystery series, ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez play three neighbours who generally avoid making eye contact in the elevator, living in the expansive Arconia Building on New York’s Upper West Side. There’s Charles, the retired actor known for playing a 90s TV detective; Oliver, a between-jobs veteran Broadway director; and Mabel, a young woman living in whilst renovating her aunt’s sprawling condominium. When a fire alarm forces them to evacuate their apartments, they bump into each other at a nearby bar and soon bond over the true-crime podcast they’re all obsessed with, “All Is Not OK In Oklahoma” narrated by Tina Fey. So when they return to the building and discover a fellow resident has been killed, the trio decide to conduct an amateur investigation – and, of course, a podcast of their own.

How to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Xbox All Access

By Luke Hopewell July 29, 2021

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is here to give you the gift of the skies. Here’s how to get started in your new journey as a pilot extraordinaire.

What is Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020?

Flight Simulator 2020 does exactly what it says on the tin. It allows you to take to the skies in everything from small Cessnas through to the herculean Airbus A320.

10 years in the making, Microsoft has painstakingly created the whole world in the game with the help of satellite imagery from Bing Maps.

You can fly all over the world, landing at airports and landing strips in far-flung locales, and participate in community challenges and events along the way.

For more info, check out our review of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

How to get started with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

Microsoft Flight Simulator

You’ll be flying in no time with our tips.

Get installed

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is almost 100GB to download onto Xbox Series S and Series X consoles, but there is an “offline mode” to help you skimp on storage if you’re running low.

To download, open your Xbox Game Pass app, and search for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Hit Install and wait for the game to be installed. Grab a cup of tea while you wait.

Get set up

The best thing about Flight Simulator is how customisable it is. Before you take to the skies, check out your settings menu to figure out exactly how you want your cockpit to feel and operate.

Check your controller settings so you can ensure your planes fly the way you want them to, before configuring your audio settings.

The audio settings allow you to let in a little more ATC noise, cabin noise and more for added realism.

Get your wings

Before you get started in free flight with the big guns, it’s worth doing the tutorials to learn just how to fly.

Flight Simulator 2020 is one of those games that rewards those seeking realism. For this reason, it might take you a hot second to get the most out of it, which means potentially repeating the tutorial a few times to make sure you know the basics.

You will crash. Get used to it at first.

However, if you complete the tutorials and actually start taking to the skies in some bigger aircraft, the thrill is incredibly rewarding.

Get used to the conditions

Once you know how to fly, you’ll want to experiment with different kinds of flights. That’s where the weather comes in.

Flight Simulator 2020 has a dynamic weather engine, so you can experience the joy of flight in all sorts of conditions.

Day, night, rain, wind: all of these can change the way you fly and the way you play!

Snap the skies

Microsoft Flight Simulator

Between the weather and the photorealistic graphics, you’re going to see some incredible sights from on high.

Remember to use the capture functionality on your Xbox to record gorgeous videos and snap awesome images.

Don’t forget to share them with us too!

Why do I need a Telstra TV?

By Luke Hopewell July 28, 2021

Smart TVs these days have a tonne of streaming apps that you can access already built in, so why would you need a dedicated streaming box? It’s a good question, but the Telstra TV does things your smart TV only wishes it could. Here’s why it’s worth a look.

What is Telstra TV?

So, how does Telstra TV work?

Telstra TV is a streaming device that plugs into a HDMI port on your TV. It runs a wide range of streaming apps so you can get access to a vast range of content and access your subscriptions – movies, live sport, drama, comedy music and also free-to-air TV.

Telstra TV unites all this into the one place – so it becomes your easy-to-use one-stop shop to access your subscriptions and content. Subscriptions required and charges apply.

What does Telstra TV do compared to other streaming boxes?

Compared to other streaming boxes and sticks, the Telstra TV is more than capable of holding its own.

While other streaming boxes can bring in some of the same entertainment apps, Telstra TV supports more than just entertainment. Here’s what Telstra TV can help give you access to that many other streaming boxes can’t:

Is the Telstra TV easy to set up?

Very!

All you need to get Telstra TV up and running is an active broadband connection, a compatible TV with an HDMI port spare, and a TV antenna for your free-to-air signal.

Once you’ve got your Telstra TV, it’s super easy to set up.

Unbox your Telstra TV

Inside you’ll find:

Can you record on Telstra TV?

I have a smart TV, why do I need a Telstra TV?

No – but why bother with the hassle of recording a program from live TV when you can just stream it directly using catch up TV app.

What to stream this week on Telstra TV

By Ryan Dunn July 2, 2021

Ryan and Janet from the Telstra TV team share their top picks to stream this month on Telstra TV.

Peter Rabbit 2 (Telstra TV Box Office)

Hop to it! Everyone’s favourite mischievous bunny is back, with a fun-filled comedy for the whole family in PETER RABBIT 2 – available now on Telstra TV Box Office. After Bea and Thomas get married, Peter and his rabbit friends Benjamin, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail become part of their family – with Peter helping Bea to write a children’s story based on their bunny adventures. But when the book becomes a success, Peter gains a reputation as a bit of a troublemaker. And it’s an image he doesn’t appreciate, at least not until he leaves the farm for the big city – where getting up to mischief is what helps him to make new friends.

Gossip Girl (BINGE)

X.O.X.O., you know you’ve missed her – and now the fan-favourite series GOSSIP GIRL is back, streaming from Thursday 8 July only on BINGE. Nine years after the original blog went offline, an anonymous Instagram account has surfaced – exposing the personal lives of a new generation of private school kids on New York’s Upper East Side. Meet social influencer Julien, who invites mysterious new girl Zoya to join their exclusive friend group – alongside free-spirited Max, stylish Luna, ultra-rich Obi, graceful Audrey, innocent Aki and power-player Monet. And of course it wouldn’t be Gossip Girl without Kristen Bell, reprising her role as the narrator – to reveal the secrets, lies, loves and lusts of these powerfully privileged teens.

A Stan Original Series Eden (Stan)

From the creators of Skins comes the Australian Stan Original series, EDEN – with every episode available to stream now, only on Stan. Sophie Wilde plays Scout, who returns to her tropical paradise hometown of Eden after studying music abroad in New York City. Reunited with her childhood best friend Hedwig, played by BeBe Bettencourt – Scout soon discovers the girl is mixed up in a dark and dangerous business she’s desperate to leave behind. So when Hedwig disappears one night after a drug-fuelled party, it falls to Scout – with the help of disgraced detective Ezra Katz (played by Samuel Johnson) – to uncover the truth. But as the series unfolds and we see the story told from the perspectives of eight different characters, we learn there’s much more simmering beneath the surface of this seemingly idyllic community. Watch all episodes now, only on Stan.



Luxe Listings Sydney (Amazon Prime Video)

Step inside Australia’s most luxurious homes with the new Amazon Original Series, LUXE LISTINGS SYDNEY – streaming from Friday 9 July on Amazon Prime Video. Join three of Sydney’s top real estate agents – Gavin Rubinstein, D’Leanne Lewis, and Simon Cohen – as they offer an up-close and personal perspective on buying and selling high-end property, in one of the world’s most expensive markets. From harbourside mansions to beachfront oases and inner-city sanctums, they buy and sell it all – and show us just how competitive they can be while doing it.

Sweet Tooth (Netflix)

Based on the DC Comic of the same name is the enchanting modern-day fairytale, SWEET TOOTH – with all eight episodes streaming now on Netflix. After a pandemic sweeps the world and mankind descends into chaos, a new species of half-human half-animal hybrids emerge. Thought by many to have caused the outbreak, the hybrids are generally feared and hunted by humans – forced to live their lives in hiding, like Gus – played by Christian Convery, a ten year old deer-boy raised in the woods by his father, played by Will Forte. With the protection of his new friend Jepperd (Nonso Anozie), Gus sets off on a perilous cross-country adventure to find his mother in Colorado. But along the way, they’ll have to steer clear of the militiamen intent on capturing Gus – and team up with the allies who have sworn to defend his kind.
