I see the new series of Mr Robot has started (S3), any news on that? Apologies if I missed a thread on that but didn't see one.

As for the "complaints" about express series, I thought most of those complaints were about the choice of filler for the breaks. I for one was happy to get things as they were broadcast in the US, we live in an online world now, and many of us have friends abroad - it's tough to avoid spoilers etc. I wonder how many people really prefer the new arrangement, or whether a loud minority (combined with convenience for MC) dictated this change. Guess we'll never know,

And now we seem to have gone to the opposite extreme with really long waits. I'd expect this to result in increased piracy as some of these delays are a bit ridiculous.

Thanks, not sure how I missed that. Very disappointing. And until fibre gets to our area Showmax is pretty much useless for us as we can't download Showmax to our Exploras and our internet isn't fast enough to stream. Since the demise of Edge we're honestly getting much less out of our Premium package and it's probably time to reconsider it.

Not sure whether it will help much but you can download ShowMax to a computer or mobile device/tablet.

Tried it on a Windows10 laptop as a temporary measure until the Exploras work. No download option. Eventually found in the fine print that download is not available on Windows devices.

Some of the content delivery changes will be related to the economy, we all seem to forget that there's a likely long term junk status crisis now as well. IMO they're handling that side of things as best as can be expected, without letting the dollar etc. exchange rates push subs through the roof.
