Foxtel has cable and sat. also the cable has the FTA stuff that foxtel sat does not have.
Directv told me I owned them. I already returned all the leased equipment (2 HR20's, 1 R22 and 1 H21).
They said the new owner woukd just have to get a new access card for $20.
Do you get to start riding a kangaroo to work?! THAT IS SO AWESOME!
Yeah, my understanding is If you are in a cable area, you have to get Foxtel via cable.
They have a couple other services but they just resell foxtel.
I'll find out more when I am actually there
Yes. The only exception is for being deployed on active military duty.
I'm jealous. Plain and simple.
Did they drop the death exception? I know they are tough but still ...... :lol:
And what happens if he didn't pay the early termination fee? the collection agency is going to chase him in Australia?
Actually, if they have a valid credit card or checking account number, they will just take it. It's in their terms of service.
Congrats and good luck..
Oh watch out for all the kangaroo's :lol:
Greetings from Downunder! I have been here almost a month and move into my apartment on Saturday. I get Foxtel cable installed Monday ( their cable AND satellite serice...you get cable if it's available otherwise you can get satellite).
For about $100AUD ($98USD), I'll get about 80SD channels, 15HD channels and the 15 free-to-air networks. With a 4 tuner box that looks an awful lot like the Directv boxes . You can record 2 shows while watching a 3rd. The other tuner is reserved for downloading shows. From the information I have, you can't fast forward through shows! I'll find out Monday.
I bought a "Freeview" box that of you hook a hard drive to will be a DVR, however, my hotel room is on the bottom floor and I can't pick anything up via an indoor antenna. Hopefully in my new pace, Ill be able to pick it up.
I get the main networks on the hotel tv, the 2 public channels -ABC and SBS, and the commercial stations 7, 9, and ten (the networks id themselves by the numbers...they are on those frequencies in all the capital cities).
There's some interesting local co tent so far, plus most of the U.S. Shows but they may be anywhere from a few days to several months behind.
I'll post more after Monday for those that are interested.
Enjoy, but your still going to miss DirecTV.
Congrats on your successful relocation.
In my own travel overseas in the past...I learned to appreciate just how much better things were at home when I returned.
In the mean time - enjoy your newfound experiences there!
Congratulation and Enjoy the New Environment.
You're going to love Australia (did a two year stint there for my company) and FoxTel ain't too shabby. Think America in the 30-40 without disco, washed up hippies and all teh yelling. It'll take a while to get used to things actually closing at night (I think thats a good thing). We were just down there to visit some friends. I think they have about 20 HD channels which leaves you with ample opportunity for festivus as they build their system.
