BigMal: I'mnot happy waiting. I like things like HDTV and I avoided getting MySky HDi because Telstra said they'd have a better alternative before xmas. Now not only is there no alternative but also no explanation.
I'm giving them until the Superbowl before I switch to MySky.
Sky set the prices and the rules sadly not TC. Not sure when they re-negotiate but yeah they are a small part of sky's numbers so don't expect much change as they are not in a position to force much.
Sky sets sky's package choices and no one else. Many years ago I was part of a big feedback group for Sky. We had to go in for a whole evening and view ads, package choices, all sorts of stuff. It included current and past customers and the cost of basic was by far the most common reason for disconnecting. Even the people running it said what came out in our session was the same nationwide. The only reason they have never changed the pricing structure is .... they don't want to.
