Save money, cancel your Foxtel subscription
Foxtel is poison for your brain! Remember when pay TV was first introduced and the big selling point was "no advertisements"? If you've ever seen pay TV, and the statistics suggest that you would only have done so at a hotel rather than in your own home, you would have noticed how pointless and ad-riddled it is. No wonder people have avoided it like the plague.
You can smell the desperation in their latest advertisements (pure neocon: "you must spend to save").
First Murdoch tried to take over your sport, then he tried to force you to pay him to watch it.
If you are lucky enough to have cash to spare, far better to spend it on a subscription to a community radio or television station, because at least you'll get something for your money.
