      Yes HD is $10 extra. Updated.

        Foxtel charging extra for HD (as well as Netflix) is absurd. The fact that free-to-air TV offers a better picture quality than basic Foxtel or Netflix is laughable.

          HD also includes their 4K channel now. Still a rip tho!

        • -5 votes

          Free to air has better picture on some channels, but it cannot compare to the content offered by Foxtel.

          I'd rather watch something interesting with slightly less definition (although Foxtel does offer 720p HD) than ad-riddled crappy or recycled free to air content, that never starts or ends when they say it should.

          A cheaper alternative would be Foxtel Go, but performance varies with the quality of the internet connection, and the channel list is smaller.

          In the end, we get what we pay for.

            @BooYa: So foxtel isn't ad-riddled…

            •  

              @SporadicUser: Most if not all programs are shorter than half an hour, or an hour, to allow for commercial advertising.

              Foxtel doesn't show many commercial ads, but uses that time instead to promote their own programs.

              Even so, whatever ads there are on Foxtel, they are a lot shorter than free to air, and they're not as annoying.

              These ads tend to show in between programs, instead of in the middle of a program, where they might show one or two ads at a time.

            @BooYa: Are you sure Foxtel's HD is only 720p??

          Foxtel charging extra for HD (as well as Netflix) is absurd.

          Not really fair to put Netflix into that argument considering that for the top 2 plans you also get a higher number of simultaneous streams as well (so allowing account sharing). Plus the price difference between the basic plan and the 4K (with 4 streams simultaneously) is only $8 difference.

          The fact that free-to-air TV offers a better picture quality than basic Foxtel or Netflix is laughable.

          Only FTA’s HD channels are any better, their SD channels are stupidly low quality (to help fit in those ever increasing “lifestyle” channels they offer). Also consider the difference between 1080i and 1080P from Netflix (along with the bitrate and video codec used).

          • -2 votes

            @Porthos: There's no difference between 1080i and 1080p, it's exactly the same resolution.

            • +1 vote

              @AussieZed: So you’re one of those people who think that just the face value of resolution is the be all and end all of it, makes sense judging from your replies.

              http://youtu.be/Avvh0iH2xSg - an old video but majority of it is still valid to explain the differences between 1080P and 1080i.

              •  

                @Porthos: That video explains the difference between 720p and 1080i. However, 1080i is basically obsolete - modern TVs can't even display an interlaced image. Only the old CRTs could do that. Everything is progressive these days - whether it's converted internally by the TV set itself or otherwise.

                  Try watching it rather than just reading the title, it clearly deals with 1080P as well.

                  However, 1080i is basically obsolete - modern TVs can't even display an interlaced image. Only the old CRTs could do that. Everything is progressive these days - whether it's converted internally by the TV set itself or otherwise.

                  Better tell that to all the FTA stations as well as Foxtel (apart from their 4K channel) as they transmit all their channels as interlaced… so yes, the TV (or in Foxtel’s case their STB) does the de-interlacing.

                  You still haven’t said how there’s no difference between 1080P and 1080i when there clearly is.

                  • -2 votes

                    @Porthos: Yes, they transmit interlaced because progressive would require double the bandwidth. But you won't notice any difference because the TV set will de-interlace the picture.

    Does Foxtel still have adds?

    • +2 votes

      Their movies are and always have been ad free.

    •  

      Yes, but not for products, just advertising their own programs sometimes.

      Edit: and movies are completely ad free as mentioned.

    •  

      All the children's channels are riddled with toy ads.

      I find it despicable that Foxtel allows corporations to advertise to children directly like that.
      ABC Kids has NO ADS for toys etc.

      •  

        Businesses do not care about your children and the brainwashed parents are too retarded to work out that advertising is harmful.

        Several countries have banned outdoor advertising full stop because of the harms it causes but this country is an oligarchy where corporations control the Government to harm you and your children for their own benefit.

    is AFL in 4k?

  • +3 votes

    I had foxtel last year for AFL, I tried to watch other channels but the ads…my god the ads. sometimes when i channel surfed all i saw was ads.

    I was on a $35 per month Sports pack with HD and no contract (free install), so this is no deal anyway.

    This price has jumped up since I signed up in July last year.

    I'm on this for $20. Wouldn't pay anymore than $20 for this.

    is there any discount for the existing telstra broadband customer?

    • +1 vote

      I don't think so.

      In fact, in the past Telstra used to offer discounts to new customers only, but this offer is for everyone.

      You could always speak to a customer representative and see if they will give you a loyalty bonus of some sort.

      I hear that the chat support offer better deals than phone support, so you could try there first.

      They doubled my speed from 50 Mbps to 100 for free and without me asking for it, so stranger things have happened.

    Worth negotiating, their customer retention team especially can go lower. Ended up with entertainment + sport + HD for $29/mo.

    •  

      Very nice.

      From your post, I'm guessing you were a customer when you negotiated that deal?

      If so, were you in a contract or not?

      Edit: aIctually, now that you mention it, I remember speaking to one of their customer retention representatives, and I decided to stay with them after getting a better deal, but that was only after I told them I definitely wanted to cancel the service.

      •  

        Out of contract. Same situation, was when trying to cancel as kayo was cheaper.

        Now it's only $4 extra for entertainment (over kayo), lot better.

        •  

          Ok thanks.

          •  

            @BooYa: Just note they usually put a timeframe on it (6-12 months), you'll have to call up again each time for extension. Just say you're looking to cancel because the discount is ending and they'll usually reapply.

    •  

      Was this Telstra or Foxtel customer retention?

    •  

      $29 is pretty good!! I got them down to $39 for the same pack and I thought that was good, now I am having buyers remorse!

      •  

        i got mine included for free in my bundle… i'm half way through a 2 year contract.

      •  

        Yeah they originally said $29 without HD, last minute as we're finalising I said add in HD too or it's not worth it (as Kayo has HD included). They happily added it on for free.

      Existing foxtel customer here. We have iq4 with entertainment + dramas + sports + HD for $39 per month for one year with no contact. Worth calling them for best offers plus thier retention team is willing to help too.

      •  

        That's not bad at all

        When we called they said 6 months is max they can do offers for lol

      most shows i watch only have ads before or after a show and not during a show.

  •  

    No ads in live sport everything else is rubbish, why would anyone bother not wanting sport.

  •  

    one thing i just remembered that really annoyed me about foxtel is that foxtel and foxtel now are different subscriptions. I was amazed when i called up and said i couldn't login to foxtel now and they said i needed to pay for that separately.

    •  

      Yes, you get Foxtel Go, it is the IP access to your subscription.

      I pay Zero $$$ for Foxtel Go, I might open it once a year. Would pay any more than that for ad riddled TV shows that are so heavily compressed it makes you feel like you are streaming free video 10 years ago.
      Im talking about the cabled connection quality, Foxtel Go actually got better quality in the last year.

    •  

      Too bad. I'd prefer Documentaries instead of Sport, but it's a good starting point for negotiating a better deal.

    •  

      Confirmed yesterday that deal is finally dead now. You can navigate through it but doesn’t actually let you sign up online. Spoke to Foxtel about it and the deal is absolutely-positively-cannot-be-selected-in-their-system expired.

      I spoke to 9 people at Foxtel (yes 9) over 2 hours and in the end managed to get the deal matched, but it was definitely a case of persistence.
