Just an observation
I've just come back from a holiday in Melbourne.
Boy What a choice they get on their Foxtel.
Discovery, Nat Geo, BBC Knowledge UKTV ESPN2 plus heaps more all in glorious HD!!
My disappointment is they have Comedy Channel not Comedy Central and even though The Daily Show and Colbert Report are comedy Channel shows we don't get them due to "Licensing issues"
The all inclusive package is $130 AUS
I don't know if the cabling and satellite services are identical but still the huge choice available to our "cuzzies" compared to what we receive here.
Slightly off topic their Freeview has Channel One so you don't need ESPN to see NFL etc
Joys of living at the bottom of the world I suppose.
