    Default Foxtel channels...what should I get

    So I think I'm going to get Foxtel but I'm conflicted on which package to choose. It's between the Movies and Premium Drama or the Entertainment Lovers. I like drama series and sit coms the most and I'm so sick of all the reality shows on free to air. I like the cooking and talent ones ok but hate shows like Survivor, the Bachelor, Big Brother etc and I don't want sport.

    If you have or have had foxtel can you help me choose which package would be the best for me

    Don't get the entertainment package then! I have it and love it, but I love that kind of trashy TV. Lots of:
    Keeping up with the Kardashians
    I didn't know I was pregnant
    Say yes to the dress
    Brides of Beverley Hills
    Quints by Surprise
    Extreme Couponing

    Doesn't sound like your cup of tea!

    Maybe wait until they have one of those deals were you get everything cheap and try it all out.

    We have all TV channels and have just added movies.
    I could do without movies but its come in handy recently ( with long bf sessions)

    They have a deal on that ends on the 30th. Looks like I might not bother then. If the Entertainment pack is not for me and the movie one isn't any good then I might as well save my money. I'm not really interested in Movies but it's the pack that has the Showcase channel that I thought might be good for Drama series.

    Id say entertainment because the shows always change and their realiyy tv shows are better than free to airs. The movies channels repeat the same stuff over and over and play repeats of tv series rather than playing the newest episodes!

    When I look at the tv guides I see a lot of Simpsons, Family Guy etc. I don't want to pay for that cr@p. I never watch it on free to air so don't want that to be all that's on if I'm paying.

    When we got foxtel at the start of the year we got the starter package, plus kids, movies, sports, docos and entertainment, but a few months ago we dropped it down to just kids, entertainment and docos.

    That's part of the reason hubby convinced me to get movies so we can get sons of anarchy, game of thrones etc

    We also have just kids, entertainment and docos. I would live the home an health channel (got two weeks free of it when it shifted, just after dd was born- was great sitting up bf'ing watching all those shows)

    For the drama such as SOA etc, we just download as soon as its aired in USA.
