He continued, “In an age where the price of some mobile phones is running into thousands of dollars despite them being locked to a network, our success over the last ten years has proven that there is an increasing demand for high quality, low-cost alternatives. The AS6 gives you that in a smartphone and the F42 is ideal for the young or elderly, budget-conscious user wanting a simple phone with easy-to-read large buttons and the most commonly used social media apps – including WhatsApp™ and Facebook™ – already installed.”

All of this in a phone which measures just 159.5 x 78.5 x 9.3mm.
The Aspera Mobile F42 flip phone again perfectly embodies the company’s ethos of providing high quality phones with as many features as possible and it is ideal for anyone who wants a simple and easy to use phone.

FOXTEL ORIGINAL SERIES THE END
TO PREMIERE FEBRUARY 2021
Starts Tuesday, February 2 at 8.30pm
Double episode premiere on FOX SHOWCASE or watch all episodes On Demand
Watch the trailer here
Starring Emmy® Nominee Dame Harriet Walter, Golden Globe® Nominee Frances O’Connor
and multiple AFI/AACTA® and TV Week Logie Award® winner Noni Hazlehurst.
FOXTEL’s compelling 10-episode Australian drama THE END, produced by See-Saw films, is a half-hour dark comedy series starring Dame Harriet Walter (Succession, The Crown, Killing Eve), Frances O’Connor (The Missing, Mansfield Park) and Noni Hazlehurst (A Place to Call Home) and will make its Australian debut on Tuesday, February 2.
THE END explores three generations of a family living with separate but intersecting obsessions – trying to figure out how to die with dignity, live with none and make it all count. It’s a story that’s been a long time in the making; its genesis in the very first script that Samantha Strauss wrote as a short film as a 19-year old still living at home with her parents.
FOXTEL Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh, said: “Foxtel is committed to telling Australian stories for Australian audiences and we are very proud of The End, a series which is bound to spark a national conversation. The End is a multi-generational family series which deals with life and death and everything in between. With a stellar script from a surprising new voice, Samantha Strauss, and an incredibly talented cast led by Dame Harriet Walter, Frances O’Connor, Noni Hazlehurst and Robyn Nevin, The End is a bold and provocative Australian drama that will engage and entertain.
“At times confronting and yes, controversial, it is a series which is incredibly moving and emotional, but above all, entertaining. I think audiences will relate to every character and we can’t wait for it to debut in February,” he said.
THE END also stars Luke Arnold (Black Sails), Morgan Davies (Storm Boy), Ingrid Torelli (Matilda), Roy Billing (Jack Irish), Robyn Nevin (Relic), John Waters (Offspring), Alex Dimitriades (The Principal), Brendan Cowell (Game of Thrones), Brooke Satchwell (Mr Inbetween), Andrea Demetriades (Janet King) , Uli Latukefu (Marco Polo), and Seb Thornton-Walker.
Frances O’Connor plays Dr. Kate Brennan, a Gold Coast-based specialist in palliative care. Euthanasia is a hot-button topic in Kate’s field of work, and she is passionate in her opposition. On the other side of the world, Kate’s mother Edie Henley (Walter) feels just as strongly about her right to die. Kate has little choice but to ship Edie out from England and deposit her in in a nearby retirement community – Edie’s worst nightmare. While Kate struggles with her own problems, her ex is in jail and her children, one of whom is a teenage trans boy, are trying to work out who they are and who they want to be. THE END is a story about family, ethics and emotion, and mostly how it’s never too late to start again.
A co-production between FOXTEL and Sky UK, the series was created and written by Samantha Strauss and is directed by Jessica M. Thompson and Jonathan Brough. THE END has also been sold to SHOWTIME in the U.S. and will make its American debut in early 2021. The series was filmed on location on Queensland’s Gold Coast with investment from Screen Queensland and the Queensland Government, and is produced by See-Saw Films, the Oscar®-winning and Emmy®-nominated producers of the films Lion and The King’s Speech and the television drama series Top of the Lake.
Executive Producers are Rachel Gardner, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Samantha Strauss, Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. Louise Smith is the producer, with Carol Hughes, Libby Sharpe and Patrick Walters as Co-Producers. Executive Producers for FOXTEL are Penny Win, Ross Crowley and Brian Walsh.
THE END starts Tuesday February 2 at 8.30pm with a double episode premiere on FOX SHOWCASE or watch all ten episodes On Demand.
