With Foxtel migrating all services off of cable to satellite, they can GAGF'd if they think satellite's going to be better and more stable in the long run.

Hahaha...originally setup near a big gum tree, gum tree grew and eventually branches interfered with the reception, technician had to come and find the best spot which has resulted in lots of piping along my gutter and walls.

Weird thing was that the reception originally started getting scratchy on really hot day, not so much on rainy or windy days.

Does anyone have any idea how to remove the Sports package? I mean, you'd think that Foxtel would be prepared and allow you to do it online, but no, they still force you to ring a non-functioning number that everyone knew would get overloaded with people presumably ringing up to cancel their Sports package, and is probably not at full staffing level anyway.

Surely they can't keep charging me for something that pretty much doesn't exist anymore.

Also got multi-screen active for everyone, so if you have a smart TV with the app, or Foxtel Now Box/nVidea Shield/PS4, you can use it as 1 slot of your Foxtel Go. if you have Apple TV, you can also airplay from phone or tablet. Likewise chrome cast.

This might really speed up Foxtel's decline, as a satellite service anyway. Only thing other than sport it has as something resembling a draw is HBO content and it's only a matter of time before HBO take that in-house with HBO Max Australia (or whatever they end up calling it). Foxtel creating fu** all of their own quality programming is going to hurt them.

Watching the BCS repeats all day. Saul and the vet.

"I'm looking for someone with a light touch. I'm not talking about some teenager taking a five finger discount of string cheese at the local Stop and Shop. I need: highly skilled, high end, discreet. A real pro."

"You gotta fit him in a tight space?"

"I don't think so."

"I got just the guy, then."
