Ditched my Foxtel for this year as they now want $65/m for the Sports HD package and stuff that. Is there any other way to watch the games not broadcast on FTA, or for that matter, all games? I'm happy to pay some money, just not $65/m.
I ditched them last November then a few days back to a new package with them. Iq3 box, sports pack, no lock in contract, $39 a month. Will ditch them again when the season finishes

I did the same. Bloody good deal.

I'm giving Foxtel Now through Round 1 to impress me before switching back to that $39 deal.
The video quality is fine, but the app is absolute dogshit. It works fine, until you want to pause, fast forward, rewind, change the channel, start a new episode, basically any function at all.

It's been like that for about 4 years, so good things must be coming really soon.

That's really good to hear. Hopefully in time for the 2022 season.

Has anyone had any experience with the Foxtel Now Box? Is it any better than the app?

As far as i'm aware, it's pretty much the app, on a box.

I personally don't like streamed Foxtel, you can tell it's streamed, and it irks me.

Yeah, I'm 99% likely to switch back to cable at the end of this month's contract. It'll be worth the extra $15 it's going to cost me just to have the ability to record and not having to deal with the app.
