Both the three-match Bledisloe Cup, as part of the Rugby Championship 2013, and the entire Barclay’s English Premier League, will be broadcast over Foxtel Play and Foxtel Go.

The fixtures will be live on FOX SPORTS and FOX SPORTS Plus — both of which are available through Play's $25 per month Sports ‘Premium Pick’ package, which must be paired with at least one Genre pick for a minimum cost of $50 per month.

These sporting broadcasts will only be showed live — Foxtel hasn’t secured the rights to store catch-up versions for delayed viewing — making a cable Foxtel subscription still the ultimate choice for recording and storing matches.

The first matches of each series will be broadcast live over Play and Go on this Saturday 17 August, with coverage of the first Bledisloe match between Australia’s Wallabies and the New Zealand All Blacks kicking off at 7PM from Sydney’s ANZ Stadium. The opening round of the Barclay’s Premier League begins with Liverpool v Stoke City at 9:30PM, with a further five matches shown simultaneously at 11:50PM.

Foxtel Play makes a Foxtel subscription more accessible to a variety of users, with subscribers able to view it through a Samsung Smart TV, Xbox 360 console, PC or Mac, with LG Smart TV support to be added soon.

Foxtel Go, the mobile device counterpart of Play, can be downloaded to any Apple iPhone 4 or newer smartphone, and any iPad or iPod touch 5 or newer. Android support is available for Samsung’s Galaxy S3, Note 2 or Note 10.1 devices, although the popular Galaxy S4 should be included in that list soon.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
