Never heard of it.
The Checkout is a satirical consumer affairs show. They debunk some of the claims made by companies and educate consumers to avoid being ripped off.
As a self confessed cheapskate, I love the show!

I love this show!

YES YES YES: Don't ever stop making it. Educate the OZ population from being ripped off.
I agree!
I've been watching from the get go and love it - I also save it off of Youtube so I can rewatch it. So much info and tips!!!
Great idea!
Yes, I sometimes watch this and think it is quite clever and funny, but the other night I had a friend with me and she thought it was terrible and actually went to bed rather than watch it!

I was surpised/

Love this show, and today I'm phoning my insurance company with a question - can you offer me a better price? I'll tell them I learnt this on the Checkout.
I guess there are people who wouldnt 'get it', but I think you take more notice of being informed this way than some dry suit & tie telling you what they think is good/not good.. I especially love the guilty mum/guilty pet owner . The people who present the show, do their research, homework, - I'm sure advertising companies, business don't like them very much at all.
A PM once said we had to be a 'clever country'. - are we?
It's a brilliant show. I think it is essential viewing for consumers who want to know how they are being manipulated and ripped off. The humour is the icing on the cake.
Yes, when I could catch it. This program needs to return at a proper half hour dedicated time slot. Remember Helen Wellings' programme "The Investigators"?? THAT was amazing and devotedly watched by hundreds of thousands of people. It was brilliant so SO NECESSARY. I would definitely watch it again if they bothered to bring it back - as would my neighbours, my friends, family, and oodles of people. No-one likes being ripped off. We NEED to know what is going on with the food we buy and the products we use. Bring it back!!! The sooner the better for all of us.
Yes great show! We watch it when we're flicking though the ad brakes of some other show we're watching at the same time. We never know when it's on, as we don't use a tv programme! 1 can also catch it later on iview, (when I remember too)
