So Are Austar Going To Increase The Price?

79 posts in this topic

Looks like Fox are going to pay a fortune to show 9 games of this rubbish. Austar better not pass on additional costs to subsribers to pay for this seeing most don't watch AFL.

I'd ditch them if they did.

seeing most don't watch AFL.

I would be interested to see where you get your figures from to justify this comment.

With almost 90,000 at the MCG yesterday it seems to me 'on the surface' that AFL has some popularity and therfore many people would probably enjoy it on Austar!

However I do agree with your comment on costs.

Fox Sports will create a new channel called Fox Footy Channel. Austar customers will lose all AFL access for about 6 months, untill they eventually negoiate a deal. No cost will be added on this way.

Post noted. Keep an eye out folks. Let's see if duke carries out his threat of ditching Austar should Austar pass on the costs.

Bets anyone? ;)

It's a fact that AFL is not opular on pay TV.

FROM WWW.AFL.COM.AU

Every home-and-away match will be broadcast live on Fox Sports through Foxtel (and Austar where applicable), using both subscription television and IPTV (internet protocol television).

Foxtel will also broadcast all finals excluding the Toyota AFL Grand Final, and will re-establish a dedicated AFL channel that will be included in the current sports pack available in Foxtel subscriptions.

The AFL channel will run throughout the duration of each football season.

All matches on Foxtel will be uninterrupted, siren to siren in each quarter, and shown in high definition. The Seven Network is yet to decide if its matches will be shown in HD.

For a sport which is claimed to be not popular on Pay-TV obviously Foxtel are completely deluded. They are setting up a dedicated AFL channel even though it is not popular according to "duke". Foxtel will soon declare bankruptcy because they have done no market research and paid millions of dollars for a product that nobody watches.

Whoever has made this grievous error will go down in history as the most incompetent TV executive ever. Fancy setting up a dedicated TV channel and spending hundreds of millions of dollars on a sport which is not popular. Go Figure!

Remind me what happened the last time they had a fumbleball channel.

77 out of the top 100 shows on Pay are Rugby League. Not this fairyball crap.

This fairyball crap has the highest attendance out of any national sports league in Australia. FACT! Twist that around any way you want!

What has that got to do with Pay TV and the points I made?

Fumbleball has higher attendances than the EPL too.

Which Sport earns more money?
