I remember the time when Pay TV had no ads, bar the ones advertising upcoming shows and movies, much like at the cinema. The footy was on Optus and it was great - no ads there, no ads during the movies and you didn't have to pay any extra money, above the basic package, to get access to the decent channels and movies. Now it's just a big rip off and full of advertising just like TV. Waste of money, imo.
Unfortunately the ads are there to keep the prices down

That's my point though, Happy, they don't. It's more expensive than it ever was!
Naaah , it's only $50 a month for the basic package including sports in HD .

Oh ok guys, things must've changed then since I last checked it out, which was some time ago. I remember the basic package was fairly cheap, but you got bugger all for it and had to pay overs to get anything decent. Still, the lure of being able to watch RL at any time is worth it for many people, I guess, but not for me anymore.

I've had fox/Austar for about 12 odd years straight .
Have 2 foxtel boxes , one for the boys and one for the girls ! ( don't get the movie package ) .
It keeps the peace and is a real marriage saver :lol:

Got sick of spending $70 odd dollars a week at the video shop and paying them for lost DVDs when the kids were little !

I only pay $90 per month for fox , nothing better than watching super Saturday on a crap winters night on a warm Couch !

Most of your Money goes towards Foxtel Commercials and Repeats :brick:
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

The game is listed as a 7PM kickoff? Is that time actually correct? Trying to suss out whether I can get to Campbelltown and back before work, or if I should watch this one on TV.

Another partial loss for FTA, but I did watch the British coverage this arvo and at least you can still watch a quarter screen or so during the ads, rather than no picture at all.

The Fox televised games are fairly punctual.

id assume 7:05pm actual kickoff.

if it was 9 it'd be 7:10pm at the earliest.

That was weird wasn't it?! Made me realise how much racing you miss during the ads.
The main reason I'm so happy is I can now record the northern hemisphere races. :)

I spoke to soon

I walked past the staff room and one of the staff had the Digital Pass
on his phone

The picture quality was excellent , I'd look into it if you were after a cheaper option than Foxtel and don't mind watching games on a I Pad etc
