No, but must admit getting sick of repeat programs on the free channels, and also the last minute changes to programs meant to be shown but are not on at the times supposed to be on.
There seems to be no accountability for the no show of programs, or the repetition of programs or 3 in a row of the same titled show.
TV Channels please wake up and stop the second rate treatment you are dishing out.
Agree totally, Farley!
I VHS tape the f.t.a. TV shows I want to watch, thereby achieving both time shift, & fast fwdng of the useless adverts.
I, too, thank God for this facility, as well as my DVD's, which I love watching.
Donjo, Did you know you can watch those wonderful BBC & Docs' on iview? And there's 100's of movies & Doc's to choose from on, SBS on Demand. All 4 FREE, Yippee! Who would really bother to pay to watch to. MOT ME...Never EVER!

Definitely not! It is far too expensive and you'd have to watch for hours on end to get value for money. Sometimes I'd love to watch some of the NRL games that aren't free to air but it's just not worth it in the long run. Besides from what others have said and knowing friends who have unsubscribed from these services, too many old programes are shown so you pay for repeats you probably could have seen on free to air anyway.
Yes - the variety and quality of drama, general interest, educational, so many news and current world affairs channels and documentaries is excellent when you want to sit and watch a bit of tv. As for free to air television - forget it, I find it appalling.
I had it for a Year and I cancelled it for the same reason, the Ads gradually drove me crazy, worse than normal free TV. Seeing as I couldn't enjoy the programs for the irritation I have better things to do with my money,
Yes, Austar initially then after several years, it became Foxtel. The main benefit was that it was ad-less but they never managed to sign up as many users as they had hoped for so then the adverts came in to pay for the station/s programs. Shame!
No, but I can understand why with the repeat, repeat programs, and rubbish that the various channels select, most of which are either not on time when they are shown or dropped and substituted at the last minute.
Give us a break and get your acts together (channels that are substandard).
Ps thank god for DVD's
Nope. I cannot think of one single reason I would want Foxtel or any other pay tv service. I don't binge watch, I watch very little tv and quite often wander off to do other things even when I thought I really wanted to watch whatever it was. I have no interest in things like Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire etc.
No, me neither Rice! Also, it would be also be a lot of wasted money for us, because we're not at home for 52 weeks of the year to make it worthwhile. I think 1 shouldn't have to pay of it, if 1 is away on holidays! Although having said that, I guess people tape shows, when there away on holidays. What I miss, I miss, & I can usually catch it up on iview, if it's an ABC show anyway.
