Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading global retro games company Antstream Arcade has today announced its launch into Australia, following significant growth in both the UK and US markets.

Making its library of over 1000 iconic video games available to play for free through its video game streaming platform, players in Australia will be able to play classics titles like Space Invaders, Asteroids and Mortal Kombat over any 3G, 4G, 5G, wired or Wifi connection. They will also be able to swap between any game on almost any device they choose, from TVs, laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile phones, with no need to download games to their device thanks to Antstream Arcade’s streaming infrastructure.

This launch coincides with the Australian launch of the Atari VCS, Atari’s modern video computer system that blends the best of PCs and consoles. Antstream Arcade will come preloaded on the console, providing Australian Atari users with an expansive retro gaming experience. Antstream Arcade will also provide something new for players, with many games on its platform featuring challenge modes, tournaments and international leaderboards, giving retro gamers old and new a modern social aspect to classic games.

Steve Cottam, CEO of Antstream said: “Australia is a country underserved by the emerging cloud gaming market. We aim to change that by giving Australian gamers the chance to enjoy over 1000 iconic games for free thanks to our cloud gaming platform. Antstream is the first truly device agnostic game streaming service in the world, and the first to offer its library of games to players for free via an ad-funded model and premium ad-free subscription service – allowing us to bring our library of classics and forgotten gems to the widest audience possible.”

Antstream Arcade’s library features games from over 55 publishing partners across the games industry, including the likes of Bandai Namco, Taito, Disney/LucasArts, Atari and Warner media to name a few. Combined, this makes Antstream Arcade’s library the world’s largest collection of iconic retro games in the world. With playable titles ranging from definitive classics to obscure curios, Antstream Arcade represents the only way that players are able to officially access the games of the past while supporting the game’s original creators and rights holders.

Foxtel has breached broadcasting rules by airing a segment promoting a betting service during the live broadcast of an AFL match on Easter Monday afternoon.

An Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) investigation found the broadcast breached the rules in the Subscription Broadcast Television Codes of Practice.

ACMA Chair Nerida O’Loughlin said under the rules broadcasters must not air gambling advertising during or within five minutes of live sports broadcast between 5 am and 8.30 pm.

“These rules are in place to reduce exposure to betting promotions. In particular, parents worry about their children seeing gambling ads, especially those associated with shared family activities like sport,” Ms. O’Loughlin said.

“Foxtel is well aware of the rules and it is disappointing that this betting promotion was allowed to go to air.”

Foxtel self-reported the breach to the ACMA following a complaint from a viewer. The breach of the rules occurred as a result of human error during the live broadcast.

Following the breach finding, Foxtel provided refresher training to staff about Foxtel’s obligations relating to betting advertising under the Code. Foxtel has also introduced new controls to ensure that gambling advertisements are not improperly broadcast during live sporting events in the future.
