I spy…Syfy

If you’re a lover of Sci-Fi, throw your hands up in the air. New kid on the Foxtel block, the Syfy channel made its debut on January 1.

The Syfy channel is home to new seasons of Haven, Misfits, Defiance, Warehouse 13 and the premier we’ve all be waiting for Haunting Australia.

We’ll be keeping the couch groove in tact to watch Investigator Robb Demarest, best known for Ghost Hunters International, who leads a team of six as they hunt for signs of the paranormal in Australia's most-haunted locations.

Keep up to date with Syfy on Facebook or start planning your nights in here.

In the Know

  • App to watch: Whisper allows users to send messages anonymously and receive replies.
    Users post messages which are displayed as text superimposed over an image, similar to greeting cards.
  • Dating apps are popping up left right and centre, but the newest one called Delightful is a game changer. Instead of trying to help single people hook up, Delightful aims to help couples plan better dates by providing users with access to an array of pre-planned dates that can be arranged in as little as two hours. Users simply choose which date they want, pay via the app and Delightful does the rest. Once a date is booked, a concierge handles details like reserving a table, looking up directions and arranging a car service.
  • Instagram is growing faster than Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest combined - with Reddit and LinkedIn closely following behind. Read the full report here.

Five things we love about Alice

1. She loves a pun. From the daggy Dad ones to the downright witty. After all, the pun is mightier than the sword.

2. She lived in London for almost four years but managed to keep her accent in check.

3. If she likes it, she puts a filter on it. In fact this picture has been Mayfair-ed. Follow her on Instagram: @alicedodge

4. Did somebody say detox? Oh yes. She’s crawling to the end of Dry January but her liver thanks her for it. Alana, stop forgetting and offering her M&Ms….

5. You’ll know when she’s on the phone and she’s used to getting shushed.
