Foxtel is a Total Rip-Off

They did not want Fast Internet in Australia just so they can keep there Monopoly.

So, Foxtel is applying to have laws enforced and you have an issue with that?

A rip off?

I don't think so. I've been a subscriber for over 20 years and think it's great value for money. How do you class it as a 'rip off'? If you don't want it you don't have to pay for it, you can chose packages starting from around $40/month... people pay more for a packet of smokes.

How do we know IF its a Good Price when there is NO Competition?

Foxtel seems to be "Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays of Replays"

I have had no issue downloading content. It's like a game, they block it and bang it shows up somewhere else. It's a miracle.

Very True. It's easy to get around the Blocks for the Time Being.

Hope they think that is enough what they doing then Relise how easy is it to get around and try and stop them that way

It's like the trillions spent trying to stop illicit drugs. Hasn't and won't work.

Haha, I don't know any of those sites and having a VPN means these stupid ISP blocks are totally impotent anyway.

I'll keep using Pirate Bay and 1337x and Foxtel can GAGF. When I can get a Netflix sub for $14 or whatever a month and watch what I want, when I want, the Foxtel model is outdated, price gouging rubbish.

My daughter has netflix... there's nothing on there I'd watch TBH.

Depends on what you want to watch I guess. I love all the live sport on Foxtel, surfing, footy, rugby, cricket etc... can you get the'main event' stuff anywhere else?

The missus watches heaps on it and then there's all the kids channels for the grandy's.

I think it's good value for money for what we want.

Dave, if it's a rip off... I'm guessing you don't have it, so how do you come to the conclusions that it's replays, replays replays?? I haven't found that to be the case at all.

I've had Foxtel since it started. Actually, I started with Optusvision as they had the Disney channel when the kids were young, and changed to Foxtel as soon as they had the same content.

I have 2 boxes, 1 in each loungeroom, the old girl would go nuts without it and I'd go nuts if I only had it in the one room

I also have netflix as I can access different stuff there to Foxtel.

I don't have a VPN, can't find any torrent sites that aren't blocked and since I hate going to the cinema/theatre to watch a movie, I just wit til it comes out on Bluray. So I haven't seen Avengers End game yet, the spoilers I've read and watched don't ruin it for me, I'll enjoy it once I get it.

%$^$%^&%% Murdoch? %$^$%^&%% the cinemas for locking in an outdated monopoly with movie producers. Stream new releases on on pay per view a month after release and I'll pay to watch it at home legally.

That's the thing that shits me. I have had the Foxtel platinum package since day dot but it doesn't have everything. I only use torrents to make up for what Foxtel don't have, yet they try to do everything to stop me doing do so.

Haven't posted here before, but I am a Foxtel subscriber. One question for Dave. Why do you think you have a right to free everything? There is no such thing as a free lunch, and if you're getting pirated streams it's on the back of people like me paying to keep production companies alive. If everything was free there'd be zero jobs and a dead economy. So I have zero sympathy for pirates like you Dave!

Fair Point but I still Belive Companies Charge WAY to much and don't care about there Customers.

Be Reasonable Price then lot more People will pay for it.

Foxtel use to be Pay because of No Ads and that is Fair Enough but now there is much ads as on Normal TV on most Channels so they be making lot of money with that and they just charging you for Big Profits

They have to pay for the content they broadcast, don't forget.

I do relise that. Must mean people who are selling the Programs are just as Guilty as Foxtel of Overcharging.

That is the Problem with the setup at the Moment in Business that every Company is Putting Price up because another put there is up.

I kind of worry how this could have really bad ending when things come so expensive that not many people can afford to live well. Be bit like in India where you have the Mega Rich and People living in Shanty Towns.

No Wonder the Shitty Reputation News Corp has that they losing any money as no one want to buy things from them
