        I understand those who don’t have fox being upset at having no coverage, but the most insulting thing for me is being a commercial paying customer of foxtel at exorbitant rates, with the 3 foxtel sport channels being unable to watch due to foxtel putting it on one of their more obscure and” new” sport channels, this combined with the worst service in the world of business, I cannot wait for a viable alternative as I would ditch them in a heartbeat!

    The Government guaranteed that major sporting events would not be “Siphoned” to pay TV. This was at a time when the 4 golf Majors were on “free to air”. Obviously not a core promise.

    It’s the only way Foxtel are going to hold onto customers. There are all those Netflick-type companies now for $10 per month so the only thing Foxtel is good for is sporting events. Still not worth the $100 per month though.

    What is wrong with the powers that be when if you cannot afford to pay “GO AWAY” is the attitude towards the rest of us no accounts

    I also remember the Govt promise that all major sporting events would remain available to the public on free to air.Foxtel have taken over by stealth and to add insult now have ads ,another promise broken.

    I too remember when Pay TV first was introduced the big attraction was NO ADS. It has been an insidious journey – did they think we would not notice if it was done bit by bit? The younger viewers have probably never known any difference. Greed is a shameful thing!

    Agreed, so many scams by major companies and so much lying to the public by politicians. It seems that advertising also allows outright lying nowadays, which used to be illegal in Australia. You just do not see this in the USA. The perpetrators would be class-action sued, the service would be restored, and the creep would come to a stop.

    Jason Day is co-leader in the final round but no free-to-air access is rotten. When Sam Stosur made the finals in the French Open in 2010, all of a sudden that match was screened on free-to-air, why can’t it happen with golf?

    Another shocker. Free to air doesn’t even get the british open. Pay TV has been a disaster.
