Some clever clogs in Australia has kindly stumbled on this.  I guess it'll be a good indicator as to what we'll pay.

Just in case it goes...

Upgrade fee: A$200
IQ2 Rental:  A$10 / month

On demand movies: A$6.95 / movie
HD Sport (ESPN HD, Fox Sports HD):  A$9.95 / month
HD Explore (Discovery HD, BBC HD, Nat Geo HD): A$9.95 / month
HD Complete (combination of the above 2): A$14.95 /month

Not too bad I suppose.  Based on this, I guess Sky will be about the same.  Hope you can seperate movies and sport.

hmm looks like they have more channel options though there? Or should I say different channels compared to here.

I'm not sure there'll be much correlation.  Foxtel have had "monthly rental" and low "install fee" on their MySkys for some time, whereas Sky has not moved to that model.  Is there any confirmation that they are considering that for MySky HDi?  Both have their advantages I suppose, but I think you'd see a faster uptake if the install fee was reduced.  I can't see it being as low as $200 though that would be great.

"Based on this?"

New Zealand prices are not the same as Australian prices, so "based on this" we have no idea what the prices will be here...

ok, fair point.

I was making the assumption that since they are basically offering the same product, I don't see why Sky would charge any different.  But as has been pointed out in this thread already, Sky don't seem to follow this theory charging as much as they can.

What a con the pricing plan is
$55 for what you have (already paying for sport)

$200 to get it
then $10 per month
then $9.95 for sport / explor per month


should read

$200 +
Sport = $20
Explorer = $20
Both = $25

No idea why they broke the $10 out FOXTEL iQ2:

But how rude is that That will be $200 then an extra $120 per year to have the box.
so the box is going to cost you $800 over 5 years!
