    We signed up for cable with their 6 month contract - first 3 months starter pack was free + free installation. I went with the Lifestyle channels package + the doco channels. Sorry not sure what the packages are called. It is working out to $25 p/month first 3 months and $65 p/month for the last 3 months. So total cost for the 6 month contract = $45 p/month.
    Not sure if I'll continue it when it runs out. Maybe. I tend to watch the same 3-4 shows anyway, it's all very repetitive.

    We pay $19.50 per month for a very basic Foxtel package via our XBox.
    It's pretty basic though!

    We previously had this too, but cancelled it a couple of months ago! I mainly watched Lifestyle You. In the end we were hardly using it.

    We are keen on getting the sports package so that we can watch our rugby league team play each week (it's the only sport we watch). Some games are free to air but many of them are Pay TV only.

    And do you have it bundled in with your home phone/internet package, or through Foxtel directly?

    I've heard if you go through Foxtel directly, it's easier to negotiate a better deal when your contract expires (?)

    The offer I'm looking at is $60 p/m, which is the basic package plus sports. Our rental property already has the satellite/connection, which should make it easier to get started.
    We go through Austar and pay $48 per month for basics plus sport. No HD though.

    We've got the iqhd deal directly through fixtel with an extra box in the rumpus, so $145 a month I think on the full package.

    I did call them last month and ask them to collect the second box and mentioned that we were thinking of getting rid of it all together and they offered $40 a month off the package.

    Its worth the discussion!

    I had a big stuff around with foxtel & complained so they ended up giving me every channel but movies and sports for free for 6 months (only first month in) so I only pay $30 a month atm. They are really easy to negotiate with!

    $110 direct with foxtel for an iq box and every package except sport. We called up a few months back asking about canceling due to perceived lack of value and they gave us 2 months at half price.

    Got a letter from them the other day saying the price is going down (which is a first!!!) by $12 from next month.
