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 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:

  • Access to Live TV and live sports, with live pause of up to 30 minutes
  • Telstra TV Enhanced Remote allows you to control your TV, sound bar and other devices all from the one remote control
  • Listen via your favourite headphones – via the Telstra TV App on your phone for a private listening experience
  • Plex support so you can bring your own library to life alongside other streaming services
  • Voice search via your remote – makes finding your favourite content super easy
  • Ethernet support for faster networking and better streaming in areas with low or poor Wi-Fi coverage

How much does Telstra TV cost?

There are a couple of ways to get your hands on the Telstra TV.

You can purchase it for $216 outright. Alternatively, you can add on Telstra TV to an eligible Telstra mobile or home internet plan for $9 per month over 24 months (total cost $216 over 24-month period + your plan charges); nab a three-month subscription to BINGE Standard on us for eligible Telstra consumer post-paid customers new to Binge (roll onto Binge Standard fees currently , and Telstra Plus members earn 20,000 bonus Telstra Plus points, which you can put towards Telstra Home Box Office movie rentals! (Eligibility criteria apply to join Telstra Plus)

Check out our online store to purchase a Telstra TV digitally.

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:

  • the Telstra TV box
  • an enhanced remote with two AAA batteries
  • an HDMI 2.0 cable
  • a power adaptor

Plug in Telstra TV

  • Connect the Telstra TV box to your TV using the HDMI cable
  • Pull the antenna cable out of the back of your TV and plug into your Telstra TV
  • Plug the power adapter into a power point and into your Telstra TV

Power up and activate

  • Turn on your TV and on the screen select the HDMI input that your Telstra TV is connected to
  • Have your Telstra Wi-Fi password ready and follow the instructions on screen to activate your Telstra TV. Once that’s done you’re ready to watch and add-on your subscriptions (charges apply)

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.

We integrate Live TV and Catch up TV on Telstra TV – in many cases if you miss something on Live TV we can link you directly to on-demand version in the catch up TV app.

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.

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.

The wise guys take on the pint-sized in the brand new family comedy, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA – available now on Telstra TV Box Office. Robert De Niro stars as the lovable Grandpa Ed. When a senior moment in a supermarket lands him in hot water, he’s invited to move into the family home of his daughter Sally, played by Uma Thurman. But when his grandson Peter is forced to give up his room and move into the attic, he declares war to get back what’s rightfully his. But Grandpa has a few dirty tricks up his own sleeve as well.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (BINGE)


Bringing to life the director’s original vision is the much-anticipated release of ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, streaming now on BINGE.

Together with Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, this unparalleled team of superheroes will need to step up to save the planet from becoming a post-apocalyptic hellscape.

Coming 2 America (Amazon Prime Video)


It’s the comedy classic sequel 33 years in the making: Eddie Murphy reprises his role as King Akeem in COMING 2 AMERICA, streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Having just discovered he has a son, King Akeem returns to where it all began in New York City. With the help of his valet Semmi (played by Arsenio Hall), the pair track down Zamunda’s rightful heir to the throne – bringing him back to their wealthy African nation, along with his mum played by Leslie Jones. But the new family dynamic causes some friction, especially with his daughter Meeka (KiKi Layne) who had her heart set on one day becoming queen. And with General Izzi (Wesley Snipes) looking to seize power, now is not a great time for division among the royal family.

Yes Day (Netflix)


Just in time for the school holidays is the adventure-filled family movie, YES DAY – streaming now on Netflix. Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramirez star as parents Allison and Carlos, who feel like they’re always telling their kids “no”.

For 24 hours, they’ll have to agree to everything their kids suggest, from crazy makeup to carwashes with the windows down and an epic water balloon battle. To bring the family closer together than ever before, they’ll need to commit wholeheartedly – and maybe even enjoy themselves along the way.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 19 March:

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (Telstra TV Box Office)


Bridesmaids co-writers Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo team up with Jamie Dornan for the delightfully goofy comedy, BARB AND STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR – available now via Express Release on Telstra TV Box Office. Culotte-clad, frizzy-permed Midwesterners Barb and Starbara are the absolute best of friends – sharing a gaudily decorated home together since Barb’s husband died in a shopping stampede and Star’s man left her for a woman with bigger toes. Both working at the “hottest place in town”, the Jennifer Convertibles furniture store, they spend more time sitting and gabbing than selling – and it’s not long before they’re laid off. Deciding it’s time for adventure in their lives, they blow their redundancy pay on a flashy trip to Florida where they meet the mysteriously suave Edgar (Dornan). But little do they know, their vacation spot is the target of an evil genius, hellbent on destroying the town and everyone in it.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Farewell Season (hayu)


Get set for an emotional final chapter as we say farewell to the world’s most-watched family in KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS Season 20, streaming from Friday 19 March on hayu. For over 14 years, we’ve been invited into their homes as Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie and Kris shared their lives, their loves, their joy and their heartache for the cameras. Whether they were “doing amazing, sweetie”, pranking each other, ugly-crying (“there’s people that are dying, Kim”) or beating each other up (watch out for that handbag), they’ve been our favourite brand of reality drama for so long it’s hard to imagine TV without them. Thankfully, there’s still one more season – and this one is sure to spill the beans on the breakdown of Kim and Kanye’s marriage, Khloé and Tristan’s plans to expand their family, plus much, much more.

Murder Among the Mormons (Netflix)


True-crime fans are in for a treat with the captivating new three-part docuseries, MURDER AMONG THE MORMONS – streaming now on Netflix. In October 1985, two deadly pipe-bombings sent shockwaves throughout the usually tranquil community of Salt Lake City, Utah. As police began investigating the attacks, they quickly discovered the victims were connected by their involvement in the lucrative and highly sought-after trade of historical documents relating to the Church of Latter Day Saints. With some of the pieces purportedly calling into question many longstanding tenets of the Mormon faith, the threat of institutional damage alone could have been grounds for motive. But when a third bomb exploded, almost killing the city’s most prolific historical documents dealer, investigators began to take a closer look into the work of a man who was seemingly at the centre of it all.

Black Hands (Stan)


New to Stan this week is the five-part New Zealand drama, BLACK HANDS – telling the real-life story behind one of the country’s most infamous multiple homicide cases. Based on the popular podcast and subsequent book of the same name by journalist Martin van Beynen, the series details the events leading up to and following the 1994 murders of the Bain family in their Dunedin home. Luanne Gordon and Joel Tobeck play parents Margaret and Robin Bain, whose marriage was struggling in part due to Margaret’s paranoid conviction that her husband and children were infected by Satan, as well as her fixation with demolishing their house to build a sanctuary. Richard Crouchley plays David, their eldest son – a university drop-out who spent his days doting on his mother before claiming to have found his entire family gunned down upon returning from his morning paper route.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 12 March:

Roald Dahl’s The Witches (Telstra TV Box Office)


Anne Hathaway, Chris Rock, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci star in the delightfully fun new take on a family favourite: ROALD DAHL’S THE WITCHES, available now on Telstra TV Box Office. When a young orphaned boy (Jahzir Bruno) is approached by a strange woman offering candy, his grandmother (Spencer) warns him of the danger of witches and their sinister plot to exterminate all children. Fearing her grandson has been targeted by a witch, Grandma decides they should hide out for a while at a luxury coastal resort. But unwittingly, she picks the very same venue chosen by the Grand High Witch (Hathaway) for her upcoming convention – and they arrive just as the witches of the world begin to descend. As plans are unveiled to transform every child on earth into a mouse, it’s not long before the boy and his new friend Bruno fall prey. But with savvy Gran on their side, they just might outsmart these diabolical sorceresses.

Genera+ion (BINGE)


New to BINGE this week is the HBO Max Original coming-of-age series, GENERA+ION – with the first three episodes available to stream now. Executive Produced by Lena Dunham, the series takes a somewhat serious, somewhat tongue-in-cheek look into the lives of a group of high schoolers navigating love, loyalty and family. Shown from each of the unique perspectives of its characters, the very snackable 30 minute episodes introduce us to Chester (Justice Smith), the charismatic star water polo player testing the limits of the school’s dress code and its new guidance counsellor (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett); Nathan, who has a crush on Chester and meets him with the help of his friend Riley (Chase Sui Wonders); Nathan’s close sister Naomi (Chloe East), who discovers a secret her brother’s been keeping from her; and Greta (Haley Sanchez), who is struggling with her mother’s deportation to Mexico.

Making Their Mark (Amazon Prime Video)


Get a behind-the-scenes look into the AFL season that almost didn’t happen with the seven-part docuseries, MAKING THEIR MARK – streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. When COVID-19 reached Australia in early 2020, season preparations were already well underway and the league was forced to quickly rethink how the game could be played – and watched by fans – under a rapidly growing number of social distancing restrictions and health regulations. The series takes an in-depth look into how the season unfolded for the players, coaches and executives from six teams, their struggles with injuries, isolation from family, maintaining motivation and the intensity of competition – especially across the 20-day, 33-game “Footy Frenzy” condensed rounds – and culminating in an historic Grand Final, played for the first time in the game’s history outside of Victoria.

Manhunt: Deadly Games (Stan)


Discover the incredibly true story behind the case of the Olympic Park Bomber in MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES, with all ten episodes available to stream now on Stan. During an outdoor rock concert to welcome the world’s spectators to the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, a pipe bomb was detonated from a backpack beneath a park bench – sending shrapnel throughout the crowd that killed one woman and wounded hundreds more. Many more could have died that day, if not for the actions of overzealous security guard Richard Jewell (played by Cameron Britton). But while Jewell is praised as an instant hero by the media, to the shock and delight of his mother (Judith Light), a former employer informs the FBI that the man is mentally unstable. Suddenly, Jewell becomes the prime suspect in what will become a five-year manhunt to track down the truth.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 5 March:

The Walking Dead (BINGE)

The final six episodes of THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 10 are here at last, streaming weekly on BINGE from Monday 1 March. Now that the Whisperer War is over, our survivors are left to deal with the aftermath. Fan-favourite Maggie is back (played by Lauren Cohan) – and given what Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) did to her husband Glen (Steven Yeun) back in season six, she’s understandably less than thrilled about him being released. And Negan should be worried too about what Maggie’s return will mean for his place in the community. But Maggie might just have bigger things to worry about than settling old scores – the survivors face a chilling new threat from a group called The Reapers and an as-yet unknown character named “Pope”, revealed by a Reaper attacker right before calmly blowing himself up.

Tell Me Your Secrets (Amazon Prime Video)

From the Executive Producer of Big Little Lies and The Undoing comes the intensely gripping psychological thriller series, TELL ME YOUR SECRETS – with all ten episodes available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video. Lily Rabe stars as Emma, a woman working to rebuild her life with a new identity in the Witness Protection Program after her boyfriend Kit (Xavier Samuel) was sent to prison for murdering several women in Louisiana. By day she’s trying to fit in without getting too close to anyone – and at night she’s troubled by horrific visions, but unclear about whether they’re just nightmares or actually memories of her involvement. Meanwhile, Amy Brenneman plays Mary, a mother desperately trying to find her missing daughter, who was taken seven years earlier. Hiring a convicted serial predator (Hamish Linklater), just out of jail and looking to redeem his soul, the lines between right and wrong are dangerously blurred in this compelling and mysterious series.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2021 (SBS On Demand)

It’s that time of the year again: The annual LGBTQI+ celebration that is the SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS PARADE is on this Saturday 6 March, streaming live around the world (that’s right, no geo–block) from 7:30pm (AEDT) on SBS On Demand. If you were wondering if the pandemic was going to rain on this parade, then think again. As one of the first significant Pride events in the world to be staged since COVID-19 hit, to ensure the social distancing of spectators and participants this year the parade will sashay on over from its usual Oxford Street parade route to the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground. Hosted by comedians Joel Creasey and Zoë Coombs Marr, drag performer Courtney Act and television presenter Narelda Jacobs, there won’t be the large floats we’re used to – but you can be sure there will still be an abundance of fabulous costumes and glittering performances to brighten your night.
