    @ Daren, David & James – Foxtel announced at their 2013 programming launch that The Newsroom would be fast tracked on Showcase. It was an obvious decision given it is a HBO series and Showcase is the “home of HBO”, but its bound to cause havoc given the first season was available to all subscribers (with SoHo in the Essentials pack) and now it’s only available to movie subscribers. They started rerunning season 1 last month in preparation for season 2.

    @James and David – Season 2 of The Newsroom is due in June 2013. I would assume SoHo will fasttrack this

    James: not sure…. I was wondering why it wasn’t included.

    S3 of The Walking Dead’s ratings are up globally.
    In the US the S3 premiere was up 50% on S2 and 102% on S1.

    There is no evidence of any decrease in illegal downloading. Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead are still the most illegally downloaded shows in Australia. Their argument is just post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

    There is little reason for Foxtel not to fast-track premium cable shows. They don’t have production breaks and they may as well offer that to subscribers who like it to keep them happy. They will repeat the series for those who don’t have time to watch every show on the planet during Summer.

    The main aim though is spin to encourage the Government to prosecute pirates to protect their business and to increase dissatisfaction with FTA, a driver of sales for Foxtel.

    The only problem they have had is with the quick showings is censoring one episode of Girls before it went to air.

    David, do you know when we should expect to see new ‘The Newsroom’? Showcase are currently playing repeats.
