These channels are simply made for both countries. No conspiracy or anything happening here.

Also if you do some research you might find Sky and Foxtel have something else in common - like maybe a shareholder or something... Some dude called Rupert has something to do with it...

There were plenty of rumors going around last year that there would be a Sky/Foxtel merger or "closer working relationship".
