    Foxtel?

    What is the advantage of installing Foxtel - apart from getting more
    channels?
    Digital TV now provides more channels, even if some, eg the History
    channel, may be missing.
    My wife and I subscribed to Foxtel once, but found we ended up watching
    the same ones we got for free anyway - being too busy to catch up with much
    else.
    And what does the Black Box do?

    We threw it out years ago . with hundreds of interesting channels
    available through a modest dish why pay , ip tv is a cheap workable
    alternative which most people find better performing
    The black box is a simple interface to your service as you know

    Access to some content that doesn't appear on free-to-air.

    The channels and content on free-to-air are still quite different from
    Foxtel.

    In that case, Foxtel is probably no advantage to you. To some people,
    particularly those who watch a lot of sport, it can be.

    In simple terms, it decrypts and converts the signal that comes via the
    satellite or cable to a form that a TV can make sense of. If it's an iQ,
    it can also record it on hard disk.

    # Yes, I've heard that adverts have been introduced since we used Foxtel.
    Yet one reason you'd install "pay-TV" is that the broadcaster funding,
    which is inherent in commercial ads, is not needed - the broadcaster gets
    its income from your monthly payment.
    So, why bring in ads, if not to merely increase income (ie. sheer
    greed)?
    And, of course, commercial ads are SO sophisticated! (Interrupting
    programs)
    No doubt, SBS feels much happier now they have them (Needed due to lack
    of govt funding)

    High definition that looks like high definition, less ads with more
    thoughtful placement, you don't get the feeling the show is
    interrupting the ads. Free TV was like that a bit 45 years ago but
    when our weak regulator and greedy broadcasters upped the amount of
    advertising per hour they sucked the life out of free TV.
    Everybody has HD TV these days but free TV doesn't show anything, if
    they stopped and had a think for a minute they'd realise that the
    people who are still viewing on kerbside SD TVs aren't going to be
    buying any of the products they advertise.

    Even if you watch the same shows there's still a difference, the
    picture is better and they'll be uncut due to not needing to chop
    portions to fit into clockface programming.
    Movie channels are uninterrupted while showing films though I must
    confess apart from the lower picture quality TCM has been the only one
    we should bother keeping, we don't watch the others enough to justify
    paying for them.
    Sport is the king pin though, they just show the game instead of a
    constant bombardment of advertising and sneaky promotion.

    # I've now checked with my local Telstra shop, with these results:
    1) Installation cost is $200, which involves a technician calling at your
    premises to install the black box, and see that everything is working
    properly.
    2) Monthly fee starts at $45 - or more (depending on how many extra features
    you want).
    3) Black box is currently geared to supply the modern digital TV receiver.
    4) There is no discount for pensioners.
    If the monthly fee was, say, $20, then I, as a pensioner, might
    subscribe.
    Otherwise, I regard Foxtel as a rich man's hobby.

    I think he was talking about free-to-air digital, but that's really no
    match for Foxtel as far as content is concerned.
