So Aust Post won’t take Box returns due to Covid19 and the closest Parcel Point is 2 hours round drive. So after SMS tennis they have put a note on my account that I cannot return at the moment.

Pretty hopeless for Regional customers.

I am tipping a $300 fine by the end of August.

My problems with Foxtel is that for 13 years I have had the lifestyle program (food) and boxsets and it didn't cost anything but since July 1 Foxtel have taken it off my package I've tried to ring without success as there are no-one to answer queries except by texting. Unacceptable. I looked at Kayo and their package was $15 per month. At least I have netflix in my package.

Indirectly add me to the list of ex-Foxtel people. Relative whose online login I've used for years has quit. I'll pay for Kayo eventually (probably not this year as I've despised the fake crowd noises). No chance I'll pay for Binge.

Are they still doing fake crowd noises? There's crowds at every game now, haven't heard fake crowds since the start of the year

35k posts on a sports forum and you wont pay $5 a week for sport just because crowd noise has been added in?

The whole concept of paying for streaming / satellite services like foxtel initially was about ad free tv. I stopped with foxtel 6 years ago when they basically made you pay a fortune for basic channels with no real difference to free to air and they had adverts. They were basically double dipping. I have refused to go back to foxtel ever since.

Most people probably know about it by now, but Binge is free for Telstra customers for 3 months. Then if you're with Telstra Plus (their rewards program which is free to sign up for), you can get another 3 months free on top of that. This deal expires in January, so got my calendar marked to cancel my account at a certain date and then sign up for another account under the wife's name.

Binge hasn't been too bad so far, good to catch up on all the HBO shows.
