Flippikat: it's a shame that Four isn't going to be moved to number 4 in the list. 

Even though it's been there a while, it still feels weird for Four to be 12.

Oh, and I suppose a few of the channels will have a new name/logo after the move too - particularly those like music channel 63 and Country99TV.


At least it's a multiple of... "4" Wink

Simple - cancel your subscription if you feel you are feeling so hard done by.

Just got our letter via Telecom

Going from $42.62/mth to $46.92/mth as they're aligning with Sky TV's retail pricing now, basically 0 benefit having Sky billed through your Telecom account now

On the phone cancelling Sky now

I'm with Vodafone for Sky TV - I wonder if the increase will be similar.

Apsattv: They can't do Discovery and Nat Geo in HD as they want their SD feed and HD feeds to match up with the same content. That is their reason.



Congratulations sky on the most pathetic excuse you can give.

God I wish Foxtel was gettable here.
