    I will have nothing to do with Amazon. We had a hacking incident a few weeks ago, a phone call from what turned out to be a spurious source, but they had our landline number, my name, and they knew something about the account (we were due for an instalment on a Prime subscription). It took me a while to work out that they were crooks. I immediately contacted Amazon, or tried to. They were monumentally uninterested.

    Yes. Similarly I decided I will have nothing to do with the ATO forever more after someone called me pretending they were the ATO and tried to scam me. o_O

    Not being a Western genre fan, I found Yellowstone to be very watchable. Enjoyed S1 and looking forward to watching S2. Surprising aspect to me was the almost total neglect of the law by the ranchers in a modern setting.

    I wouldn't necessarily say your Amazon account was 'hacked', but it's possible there's been a data leak somewhere with your details that includes whether you're an Amazon account.

    Plug your email into; https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and you may get an idea of how many data breaches you're info is in (and these are just the ones made public to Troy Hunt).

    It's entirely possible that the scams go on luck of the draw. Similar to energy/bank scams where most Australians are with 1-4 energy or banks, you could call a random number and have a high chance that you've landed someone with an ANZ etc account.

    I, too, would like to register my protest against the internet.

    Issue is we need money to keep the talent as part of the product. To me surely taking a punt for extra $10m got to be worth it for 9 and reckon they will match Foxtel bid if pushed.

    Biggest issue though is we don’t know how much content on FTA vs Stan but in principle - nine / Stan option sounds attractive

    Stan > Fox/Kayo anyway. It's cheaper and you get more stuff.

    What is really cool is we at least know we are going to get a broadcast deal - more now who with - and say nine / Stan take the Mai. Game I wonder if Foxtel pitch for club and schools rugby with national club championship

    Stan has been losing content with Amazon, Disney and now Binge taking a greater slice of the exclusive rights for SVOD content.
    Increasing sports content is a fight to remain relevant.

    BBoomer Wamberal all up in here.

    I can't see any sports package being included by default in the $7 a month plan though. Boy oh boy do I love it though.

    I really hope not. Last thing I want is to have to keep Foxtel/Kayo to watch the club game if SR/Internationals move to another platform/service. I was really hoping one service would take the who package, you could then have some reasonable Rugby shows promoting all aspects of the game if that was the case.

    Biggest issue for Stan is that it’s smaller then Fox / Kayo, but also growth has slowed in the face of increased competition, Disney and Amazon are adding more people per qtr and from a smaller base.

    Are there any professional sports competitions in Aus that play mid-week (Tues, Wed, thurs) instead of on the weekend? I'm just wondering how much ratings would drop if a FTA broadcaster tried to promote a sporting competition to households on those nights at 7.30pm instead of say, Nija Warrior.

    I am wondering if nine take up rugby how much would be shown on FTA and main channels vs its other digital channels and on Stan

    As unlike league unlikely they are going to want to put super rugby on prime time slots on its main channel

    if today's game rated well then things could progress quite quickly - a team with promise that has in the past attracted 2 million viewers at a Bledisloe.

    If they're paying for it, they'll probably put the Super Rugby on one of the multi-channels. I'm sure it would outrate whatever 9Rush has on Saturday night.
