Just looked at Foxtel pricing and packages,

http://hd.foxtel.com.au/pricing/


Link on there to view all other pricing and things that have to be brought before HD options.

My thoughts are less NZ choice content, but think pricing is heaps better NZ. Also noted can't get HD movies on subscription with foxtel, got to be all pay per view - ouch.

Noticed on sky guide nz when ask for more info on movie some are showing HD after wide screen logo, seems to be quite a few that will be HD when have the gear to recieve.

Also $200 to upgrade from mysky in Aus.

Summary

Foxtel start up $37.95 v's NZ 49.?? just $11.00 cheaper then NZ's - NZ start has more channels and would cost more then $11.00 to add these channels to foxtels.

$10 HD ticket same on both then if get sports etc on Foxtel have to pay another 9.95 on top of sports package, as far as I'm aware it's justs sports you've got to be subscribed to with skynz, pretty sure the $10 HD ticket covers the rest.

I suspect that these are the same type of PPV movies that Sky will be offering. Looks like Foxtel doesn't have a general movie channal  that Sky HD will be offereing and judging by the age of some of Sky's offerings these days it may be a good thing  that Foxtel is not offering a movie channel..

when I've done checks on PPV movies, it's usually 6 months from PPV to movie channel.
Pay about $21.00 for three PPV movies, or wait 6 months and pay just under $20 for approx 8 new ones to movies that month plus being able to watch the older ones as well.

Some movies go to Rialto, but most of those not interested in.

Checked Foxtels subscription movies and they seem to be playing same ones as sky nz's for the newer movies. Seen someone post PPV movies better then sky movies which I can't work out, as other then 6 months they're the same movies.

Oh well, HD in new zealand movies (including older ones like Blade Runner), foxtel only PPV.

Just counted about 12 new movies for June on movies 1,2
