Ok then what point were you trying to make with your post?
Other than point 2 which I can only make the assumption is ironic.
I was merely making some observations about @tdgeek's post, mainly inspired by his mention of Sky News, which is the Aussie version of Fox News and has rightly been raked over the coals for some pretty despicable racist content. I found it a little upsetting that he was presenting that as an example of 'Australian News', which it is not. If it is still the same as it was a few years ago, it is another Murdoch propaganda mouthpiece spewing opinionated bile dressed up as political commentary.
While I was about it I added a few digs about Sky's constant promos and pointed out the availability from non-Sky sources of some other features he mentioned. But I don't regard these points as biggies. That is reserved for the racism.
Not sure why you think my point 2 is ironic. I have made many posts over the years about issues relating to streaming and networking, but I can't think of any that specifically had to do with Geo-unblocking, other than my advocacy of it. If you care to cite any specific examples of issues related to "bypasses of geoblocks and assorted devices" I will be happy to address your concerns.
