FOXTEL Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@paul_tooney @Buddha14 Wow! My gripe was I was on an old deal with an IQ2 box. No one called me to keep my plan current! Part of the “solution” was to sign me up on a $72 p/m deal. This only alerted me to how much I have been over-paying! #Foxtel via Telstra - two levels of sub-standard service!
@paul_tooney @Buddha14 An update re: the Kayo. Service was restored, not in time to watch the A-League #BigBlue. Kayo replied to my tweet. I sent a quick e-mail, they responded (fast!) by giving me another free week (25% off) the next bill. Can't say my Foxtel (via Telstra) would have done that.
@Foxtel Can you please come up with, Press red for Ground Commentary. Not having @FoxCricket Commentators for a Paid Service, is doing my head in 😡 #BBL09
& replays of cricket. Pretty pathetic. I’ll be canceling my subscription and resorting to a Kodi box. Piss poor from a an apparent market leader in sports. @batsandballspod what an absolute crock! Watching luge, skiing, curling & ski jumping is a way of life. EAD @Foxtel

Hang off there. I gave up Foxtel years ago due to Murdoch. When I saw the post on Netflix I thought **** what next. So I checked up on the NYSE share register, no Murdoch and no Newscorpse listed as significant holders.
@StiffyAvery132 Haven’t had Foxtel since like 2011 lol! They’ve gone shit :/ ill watch online I guess
@kayosports **** you ***** have got some cheek... still charging ***** for your piss poor service for the last 2 weeks! Thinking you ***** can go **** yourself, I’ll go back to foxtel after this, at least they listen to their customers, not like you bunch of tight *****!
@Telstra I’m in Carrara and it’s been down since yesterday morning. No wifi, no Foxtel, no Netflix. My wife at home with our newborn is really enjoying the outage
@FOXTEL_Help I suspended my account and now i am not getting all the free to air channels. Some are coming, some are not. When i contacted you guys, customer service says you need to make your account active

@JswannyJohn *things Never had Foxtel - expensive
@johnsy123aus @AstraKate yep, i had the free foxtel one for 2 yrs for being with telstra, but never watched it and cancelled last week even tho i was getting it for free, i refused to watch it.
@ItsJardo Nah screw that. It's as bad as Foxtel at that rate. If I have a streaming service it's only one and I swap it out when i want something different. Im just old and hate spending money hahaha
@rugby_podcast @Foxtel Can hardly blame Foxtel. Super Rugby Grand Final last year had 81,000 viewers. On the same day an NRL match between two shit teams had 260,000. Foxtel will probably keep it for peanuts though, because I doubt anyone else desperately wants it
i have never paid for foxtel or any of his rag papers!

@foxtel down again. Looks like a deffo cancelation now. Two bob bit company #wankers #awasteofmyfuckingtime
@FOXTEL_Help I’ve been reaching out to you for a week to cancel my free trial. Please contact me.
@Foxtel I’ve just found out Eurosport is going at the end of the month disgraceful!! You call yourself a premium service but don’t provide specialist choice instead we have a new sleuth channel full of old repeats!! 😡😡
@johnsy123aus @roberthulands Never had foxtel. Maintaining the rage against Murdochracy for more than 20 years. Even convinced my 82 yr old dad to stop buying the Sunday Tele. Unfortunately, being in a regional area, we get Sky News free on WinTV. I can sometimes hear the strident tones of Jones & co. Ugghh.
@EurosportAUS Not everyone has internet tv - live in small country town where internet is crap and have an old Foxtel box with satellite to get that only.
@xzRich_ @DarthMadV Where ******** do you get your information 😂😂😂 dude the foxtel/cable lines are without a doubt the most reliable internet connection in Australia. I would know because one, I've had cable for years before having NBN HFC and two, I use to work for Telstra and work in jbhifi now
@FOXTEL_Help when are you 🤡s going to convert Comedy to HD. You are running new shows like curb your enthusiasm on it and in shitty SD. It’s 2020, time for your channels to be HD. My contract expires next month so you have 3 weeks to fix it or you will lose yet another customer.
@johnsy123aus @cousincat I confess. I have Foxtel lite. I get 10 channels of rubbish, including sky, which I never watch. I pay $10 a month for the box and IQ. It’s cheap for the box. Canceled Netflix last week, but that was mainly financial. When we get 5g here I’m gone.
Netflix is easy to cancel , you can cancel without talking to anyone , Foxtel used to be the same but now they make you talk to to someone, who almost threatens when you say you want to cancel , bastards they are
@docker_dave @wests_glory @ALeague @AAFClubs If that's the only issue, then ALeague clubs should definitely take control of production. Can even hire the same production company that Foxtel uses. Or could do it for lower costs (+ so,e extra cameras) with the company that does NPL, FFA Cup, etc
Bummer went to cancel @Foxtel subscription-contract till Sept 2020. Diarised date will move to FetchTV Sighhh! Hoped to be rid of #Murdochracy TODAY #MurdochDetox #murdochmedia #ClimateCriminals #ClimateEmergency #climate #ClimateCrisis @SkyNewsAust @australian @couriermail
What's the point of having @Foxtel and paying for a premium service if I can't watch what's available on a subsidiary of Foxtel. Paying 5x as much for 5 times less. Sigh.
@leewoodbridge @timminchin I have been looking into this. I have had Foxtel for a year and never even signed in. This is the reason I will sign in
Cancel Foxtel today , don’t give Murdoch any more money
@DerrickL @DiscoveryID @Foxtel Great news and congratulations! Please ensure the places helping people and animals have very little overhead; that the majority of money goes to support the people/animals and not the “executives” pockets. Sadly, in crisis, very bad folks come out. Stay safe!
@Foxtel Our family and friends have supported your fantastic Foxtel Racing (526) and BBL 501 for many years, but we have turned off both channels while your new terrible female hosts are on. They are the worst hosts we've known. Please dump them and bring back the super guys.
Cant believe I didn't cancel @Foxtel from @Telstra earlier. Outdated boxes, expensive and content now less than impressive. Replaced with @kayosports and saving $95 a month. Got @NetflixANZ and @StanAustralia for binge content. #AllSet
@MatterOfStats It was probably the plan all along, run it well, get people feeling as if they need it, close it down and hope they take up Foxtel subscriptions
@EddyJokovich @yassmin_a Been thinking about this! Time for trial by association! Telstra partner Foxtel. Avoid Telstra. If a company parters Murdoch. Avoid it and let them know all about it. Make a company choose between the customer or Murdoch! #auspol
@FOXTEL_Help for the past week or so, we sporadically kept getting ‘no signal is being received’. The past two nights we’ve been getting that message every couple of seconds on and off.

@hahnenkammrace SADLY ONCE AGAIN AUSTRALIA WON'T SEE IT ON EUROSPORT BECAUSE OF @Foxtel someone please help us ski fans see alpine ski racing
@skybluedavidb @kayosports @Foxtel I’ve never had a problem with it, to be honest.
@FOXTEL_Help I am getting error screen 'Support Error 404 code Apache Tomcat/6.0.24' when trying to log into my Foxtel account. If I can't cancel my Foxtel account I will be demanding a refund of my next bill
@bootsa22 @RealBrettJones Went all-in on streaming and ditched Foxtel. Kayo been down for half the match. Yes. I know Kayo is a Fox company. Worked alright up until this evening so far.
Will watch all the free to air channels controlled by the globalists & our Public Service, it is bound to be reported by them, I know Foxtel will.
Kayo the app of Foxtel is shit. All the time frozen and practically we pay for nothing. This is a joke. That is why more customers are running away of this shit
@Peter51721576 @mel_giancarlo @TonyKoc69285191 Murdoch press is but one area of the Murdoch influence. Foxtel. 2GB ( indirectly). TEN /WIN TV screening Sky News. He backed Labor once but Whitlam wouldn’t be his puppet. He never forgave him or Labor.
@JakeDuke1 @9NewsSyd @SSFCRABBITOHS @JakeDuke1 Post it here as my Foxtel Chanel 9 is down as there is outage in area
Have @Foxtel problem, don't ring 131999, worst customer service in Australia. TV out for 7 days due to line problem. Installed disc 3 days ago, @Foxtel Text me today, line now working, if you don't still have connection reply and we'll get back in 3 business days. #longweekend
Update; I bought a 'genuine' refurbished Fetch box from Fetch proper on eBay. Cost about $250 after a discount. Not too bad given I've wanted a recorder so I can still record FTA TV and possibly get rid of the @Foxtel iQ3. @EurosportAUS $8.99/month. #couchpeloton #Cycling
Farken nbn/foxtel still not working...
We only *have* Foxtel Go, Telstra TV, & Telstra Box Office credit, because they came with Telstra cable - our only option (it is actually VERY good, 110Mbps down; I'm anxious about being forced onto NBN FTTC soon). It does give me an interesting perspective on streaming options.
@MarkyBlakeley @BuffyHDBluRay @PrimeVideoFR @primevideouk @StanAustralia @Foxtel @Viaplay_SE @FacebookWatch @FOXtvFR @SyfyUK @SYFY_Spain @PopTV @SpikeItalia @joss To be fair, Joss has been filming his new HBO show for about six months now, so has been too busy to get involved. He did tweet a couple of years back about taking up the issue with Fox. If he did, clearly they didn't change their minds about it.
@rugby_podcast @Foxtel You can't grow the market by making it hard to access. I know it's a $ problem but short term pain for long term gain. Even if there is less total rugby shown on FTA at least it'll be on FTA. 100 games that f#ck all people watch is worse than 30 games that a heap of people watch.
@RyanHMiu Already do have fetch through Optus. Have to say it beats Foxtel at every turn, Especially price. The ONLY reason I wanted Fox was Eurosport & now that’s no more. Happy customer over here
@OptusSport time to listen to the experts for the next hour before the game... ffs your so shit optus was way better when foxtel ran the football in this country!! Who carrs about these two knobs opinions if they wher any good at football they would be managing not boring fkn us
@Jonesracing82 @GerardWhateley Well, I don’t listen to SEN.. and I’ve cancelled my Foxtel subscription. I don’t have to hear him or his idiot sidekick anymore.
@gregpeartpolish @KellzBellzzah @RealMarkLatham It's a sad fact that Australia doesn't have a Free to Air Media like Foxtel. Or even Sky News. Anywonder The masses are so Dumbed Down now, when all they have is Far Left Garbage like The ABC, and Leftist Fairfax Channel 9, and moronic Channel 10. It's a Wasteland.
@AusSportsGuy1 @ReadingThePlay Foxtel’s bigger issue is they paid overs for sports that don’t rate very well. Rugby Union & Aleague in particular.
@burtpies @Foxtel Never say never again is a remake of Thunderball.
Gerard,that’s why Rupert already has Kayo up and going.Has Foxtel and Kayo,has a foot in both.He will shut Foxtel down when the time comes.
@ReadingThePlay Optus sports streaming service is sniffing around as well. Foxtel as it is will be dead in 5 years
@mativity @carltonkirby @robhatchtv @Eurosport Yeah, we have it as OH had Optus Sport for a while... Handy for kids to watch Netflix, but prefer my HD Foxtel IQ box... I know it's a 1st world problem, but annoying nonetheless
@nikki2710 @IAmNotTrisha @caitrionambalfe @Outlander_STARZ @SamHeughan @SkeltonSophie We're the forgotten land down under 😭🙃. I'm surprised I've seen an ad on Foxtel promoting S5
@ScottyD53 @Schoolboy82 @EurosportAUS @Foxtel Going to bet their was a pitch from fetch using their content delivery network for not very much at all, which allows @EurosportAUS to stream content into once and distributed/consumed from there. From a technical standpoint it makes sense. However from a client base, not so much
Australian viewers can finally watch @WWENXT on their screens if they have a @Foxtel service. Live on @FOX8tv every Thursdays at 12pm. Don’t miss it. FOX8 is on Channel 108.
