    • 19 years is a plus and a minus. Customers are no longer considered loyal, rather they are lazy. Most things we consume have more than one place to source them (insurance, electricity, phone plans etc.) Foxtel has until recently largely been a monopoly in the PayTV arena and is only just now being opened up to customers starting to have real alternative options. The contemporary businesses approach is to get people to subscribe with steep discounts and then keep increasing the price to 'reward' peoples (loyalty/laziness). Foxtel has a similar business model. Designed to minimize churn (people leaving after an initial subscription) but also to extract as much $ as possible per customer. A recent change in their approach has been to get the IQ boxes out prophetically for free. They discovered once people set up their viewing and recording around the boxes then they found it a LOT harder to cancel Foxtel and return the boxes. Anyway, i wouldn't expect much more of a discount. Usually the only way to get a negotiation is to ring up and request a termination. You've done that and now signed on again for a new deal. Perhaps try again in 12 months. Regards Peter Gillespie
