I think the issue is that Fanpass doesn't give you the popups, so you pay decent coin and still can't get the content. Unless you subscribe to the whole shebang, you can't watch the popups. Which is their prerogative, as rights-holders, but it leaves people who can't afford the full sky package with very few options. I don't have a problem with them charging a premium Fanpass rate for extra content like that - maybe they're missing a trick by not doing that.

True but they are also making churn really easy, not a great way to do business. The $50 deal, I am sure I saw that on TV last week as an ad, so $50 per month invl sport and HD ticket and MySky might well be where they are heading. yes, Fanpass is cheaper of you need to occasionally, but the package is a world ahead of quality and usability compared to FanPass

Agreed, if you can get the $50 deal is cheaper and much better featured, if you want sport year-round. Problem is, that pricing is limited. It's a good short-term solution, though, if you want something that is only available via pop-up channels.

Hi, I am not well versed with those scripts. Is there a 'Streaming Aus Open for Dummies' version?

 

I have a smart TV and a Roku stick which I use to watch Netflix (and watched Sling TV before its subscription ended with the help of a smart DNS). What's the best way to utilise those tools and watch Aus Open matches? I am happy to pay for a channel for the Aus Open time period. Sky Fan pass is too expensive for me.

Many thanks.
