Default Foxtel

Im thinking about getting Foxtel soonish. Whats it cost for a decent package with all the sports and some movies? How much are the sub channels with all the fights on?

I think its a bit different over here to back in the UK. In the Uk the basic package is cheap, but you get **** all good channels. All the decent channels you want are segmented with loads of shit you dont want so you need to buy like 8 blocks of shit channels to get the stuff you want at which point you are paying more for the subscription than you spend on rent.

Whats the scene here then?

Do you get much boxing with that, or are there other boxing packages? The movies arent too much of a big thing personally as I dont really watch that much TV but my bird does. Also it saves on renting DVDs that I never remember to take back when I do want to watch something.

Well if you like watching movies and you do hire them, you would probaly save money getting movies.

Get sports and you get new boxing/kickboxing and MMA about 5 times a week for a average week.

I get most of the PPV, its add up mate, but if you can have a few friends to come over and throw in $5 as i do its not too bad

I dont think i would earn what you boys do on the manlaind. Tassie suxs like that but living here is cheaper.

But i have just got a good pay rise, about $120 extra take home each week so im happy as!!

Went straight out and brought 5 new tyres for my 4x4!!
