    You'd also wanna hope that @Foxtel is thinking ahead for apps from: -@Disney's Disney+ -@ATT's @HBO Max -@comcast's @nbc/@UniversalPics upcoming streaming service -@hulu Because you know @AppleTV is gonna have them all if they come to Australia. @Apple will also have Apple TV+.

    @plesbilongmi @DesHoughton @abcnews @canberratimes Typical ABC. Reporting crap. Nobody believes anything they say, it is a joke which should be sold to Foxtel.

  • bonomorris BMorris (@bonomorris) reported

    @_joshsmith_58 @FOXSportsAUS Yup, mine down also. The clown show continues at Foxtel!

  • ACMilanSydney The AC Milan-Godfather (@ACMilanSydney) reported

    @StefanPIC @FOXTEL_Help @sfava_ Thanks Steve, in the house I have a technician that works for the NBN, working on major projects in the city, plus can do any data cabling and install hardware and run programs. But I will not let him touch it, it’s a @Foxtel issue, I pay them for a service. They stuffed up....

  • _joshsmith_58 Josh (@_joshsmith_58) reported

    @FOXSportsAUS foxtel play is not showing the golf on my tv, is it me or is there a problem

  • ACMilanSydney The AC Milan-Godfather (@ACMilanSydney) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help For 12 years I had the silver IQ box, never had a problem. The antenna cable went in at the back of the box, now they gave me an IQ2, only cable is from the power pole with an HDMI cable going to tv. So I’m assuming you control the free channels from your end not by my antenna.

  • ACMilanSydney The AC Milan-Godfather (@ACMilanSydney) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help I’ve already reported the issue twice, last time was this afternoon. Channel 9, is now working so it was the other day until playing up again. Whatever maintenance was done on the 12 of July, stuffed up the free to air channels, as advised by SMS that service was out for the day.

  • IMAROOSTAR RooStár 🐓🏆 (@IMAROOSTAR) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help I dont need any help atm. They are absolutely terrible to deal with.

  • dccoutta David Coutts (@dccoutta) reported

    @GlennHampson @thetipsguru It’s not called “up the guts”. The worst show on Foxtel.

  • IMAROOSTAR RooStár 🐓🏆 (@IMAROOSTAR) reported

    @Foxtel I don’t know why you have taken your phone support overseas it’s absolute rubbish.

  • fifail Fiona Eloise Bulle (@fifail) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help That's a shame, it used to be. Thanks for letting me know. I'll cancel my account then.

  • BobPearce52 Bob Pearce (@BobPearce52) reported

    @AlboMP I am calling on you Mr Albanese to speak up loud and often about this “Great Big New Tax “ that is the “Foxtel tax” that this government wants to implement to fund its substandard NBN and it’s never going to happen “Surplus” The Govt DON,T have a mandate for new taxes .

  • wildwestcoast WildAnts 🐜🐜🐜 (@wildwestcoast) reported

    @SirEothain 100% Streaming sucks 💩💩💩 rather pay for Foxtel get reliable service you do

  • McBrutalBeard JC (@McBrutalBeard) reported

    ... every other service @NetflixANZ , @PrimeVideoAUNZ , @YouTube EVERYTHING works except you @Foxtel Absolutely not acceptable in this day and age.

  • BobPearce52 Bob Pearce (@BobPearce52) reported

    Govt want Foxtel tax passed because they have to pay for the support they got at the election .

  • juanfarkall juanfarkall (@juanfarkall) reported

    @muzonsport @sandylanceley @paulmac_78 Perhaps there is less cost involved with providing the Kayo service than the traditional Foxtel service. Not just transmission costs but cost of actual content.

  • lalakala778 Lala Cat (@lalakala778) reported

    @petrakarbach I did that last year, plus we got quite a few freebie games on free tv. This year I'm paying cable(pay) tv coz there wasn't many freebies. It the only thing I watch on this cable service (Foxtel).

  • teresa_62 Teresa (@teresa_62) reported

    Daughter and I are watching #WSWvLUFC and flicking channels #afllionsroos .listening to @abcgrandstand #nrlcowboyssouths . Hubby is watching #TheLionKing . His Foxtel is not working due to power cut last night. It’s been one of those days.

  • DbasarDrazen Drazen basar (@DbasarDrazen) reported

    @kayosports_help @TracyBsays And further.. why am I paying for crap lag .. the same price as Foxtel .. step up you game or reduce the price or speed up the system.. probably advertised so much that now your system just isn’t coping

  • Fathairylazy Action Bailey (@Fathairylazy) reported

    @muzonsport Can't find the app on my Samsung TV. I really wanna drop Foxtel. Especially cause SD looks awful on my new TV

  • TaintedMuse MsH 😻🇸🇪🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺 (@TaintedMuse) reported

    @JanetGoss @Foxtel That’s terrible 😞

  • JanetGoss JG (@JanetGoss) reported from Tweed Heads, State of New South Wales

    Can't livestream the footy. Blackout on @Foxtel Sigh..

  • lawrahhh_ Laura (@lawrahhh_) reported

    Sitting down to watch the game only to find it’s not on free to air until 4pm. WTAF! Damn you new house and your expensive mortgage meaning no more Foxtel 😤😤😤

  • music000070 2good2betrue - #LaborForLife Keep fighting (@music000070) reported

    @danteruker @Foxtel is getting desperate. It was an absolute nightmare just trying to cancel my service. Rude and arrogant.

  • funksoulmatt48 funksoulmatt48 (@funksoulmatt48) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help waiting almost 20 mins to speak to someone this morning re a "extra charge " on my bill, pathetic after 20 mins I gave up . Still have issue with "hidden charge"

  • anusha_srini Reclaim Humanity (@anusha_srini) reported

    Dear @netflix, if I see any @Foxtel crap in your line up, my sub ends. Thank you

  • danteruker dantesai (@danteruker) reported

    @elee_bella I think Foxtel are just offering it as a service on top of theirs, that is, an app on their IQ box. Will still be able to get stand alone Netflix.

  • danteruker dantesai (@danteruker) reported

    @elee_bella Probably still have to pay for the overpriced crap Foxtel service and pay Netflix subscription on top.

  • carlosthedwarf_ carlosthedwarf? (@carlosthedwarf_) reported

    I used to be fine with paying for Foxtel to avoid the incessant #refsfault garbage on Channel 9. But Fox League is just as bad these days, would love to pay for an option with no commentary

  • ulishoes ulishoes (@ulishoes) reported

    And having replaced my foxtel remote, my Apple TV remote is now not working (yes, have charged it). Clearly technology in all forms hates me thus week.

  • bozwhite Boz (@bozwhite) reported

    @MaitlandMumbler Had the old Optus tv provided by fox. With NBN, if I wanted Foxtel was considered a new customer and only getting iq2. Yet the latest is iq4. I said to the call centre person will go with Kayo. Their response that is streaming. I said yes cheaper and no Sky News channels

  • scruffybushrat Tony Groman (@scruffybushrat) reported

    @simonjzw Yeah the apps (ie Foxtel go) appear to know where you are but just betting - try going through safari or google and login without using betting app.

  • StephanieAfrica Stephanie (@StephanieAfrica) reported

    @essendonfc From my iPhone cos my boyfriends internet is shit and they don’t have foxtel 😂

  • MWRyan66 mrrynoshark (@MWRyan66) reported

    @Foxtel I’m paying for a delayed telecast, false advertising not LIVE so get it down!!!

  • FaradayBrash Leanne Faraday-Brash (@FaradayBrash) reported

    @Foxtel My new service great. IQ4 amazing. Vlad the technician delightful. The glitch on My Account coz I have a hyphenated surname, 4 weeks old, no fix, pressure to pay and a survey that told me I hadn't answered a qn you didn't ask me!!! #badtoworse

  • MB62295311 MB (@MB62295311) reported

    @vpnstreamer Why didn't foxtel do it 2 years ago foxtel was never going to win

  • simonjzw Simon W (@simonjzw) reported

    @scruffybushrat I tried a VPN, PureVPN to be specific, and it was zero help in Turkey. Couldn't access Foxtel Go either. I think the problem is smart phones and tablets contain gps devices and all the betting apps require phone location access to be turned on. So Inspite of the VPN I get blocked

  • BigV2011WCE Victor Yong (@BigV2011WCE) reported from Westfield, State of Western Australia

    No broadcast of @wswanderersfc vs @LUFC on a FTA network tomorrow night. It’s only on @beINSPORTS_AUS on Foxtel or @kayosports around the world @smfcmike

  • MarkedThoughts 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗖𝗼𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗻 💭 (@MarkedThoughts) reported

    As this is a service that costs 2 x as much as other streaming services, I’d appreciate if you could send us a foxtel now box for free, so we can actually use it.

  • MarkedThoughts 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗖𝗼𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗻 💭 (@MarkedThoughts) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help we have been using the foxtel now app since April, and consistently have issues airplaying to our TV. 5 x a program we have to quit the app and reconnect. The process is terrible. We have super fast nbn, and no issues with any other streaming service.

  • Farmer3086 Tony. (@Farmer3086) reported

    @Sgt_Patterson @kelliekelly23 @Kate3015 For **** sake. Four people living in a house earning 1600 a week. Paying rent of 350 leaves them $1350 a week to laze about and do **** all. What a life. Foxtel and take away for everyone

  • NathanPSI Psivewri (@NathanPSI) reported

    @Telstra They're pretty random, that being said, we have very old copper wiring in our area. We also have a coaxial connection for Foxtel. When I asked a Telstra support tech about getting our internet through coax they straight up ignored my suggestion. This would likely improve our net.

  • WayneEllery Wayne Ellery (@WayneEllery) reported

    Foxtel have now fixed this issue. Really impressed with the quick response on Twitter, communication and resolving the issue promptly

  • ScottThomson1 Scott Thomson (@ScottThomson1) reported

    I’m glad Foxtel have chosen Thursday Night to have this idiot on as I watch the footy #hinch

  • jt_melb John (@jt_melb) reported

    I never watched AFL360 during this time not having access to Foxtel. Robbo telling it exactly as it is. Beyond compelling TV many will be seeing for the first time. #TheFinalQuarter

  • tedbaxter99 Ted Baxter (@tedbaxter99) reported

    @tsargo63 @NRL_Bulldogs @FOXNRL The commentary on @FoxNRL the last 3 @NRL_Bulldogs games has been awful & biased. Corey Parker is talking about "our team" I am thinking of ditching @Foxtel because I am finding myself watching Channel 9 again. I never thought that would happen, but @FoxNRL is terrible

  • MB62295311 MB (@MB62295311) reported

    @EFTM fetch tv remote is horrible should copy foxtel remote

  • SkyblueJohnno Liam Johnson (@SkyblueJohnno) reported

    So Mum was gifted the Drama Package on a free 12 month subscription from @Foxtel back in March, which is a nice touch for a loyal customer. It’s just a shame they waited 4 months to notify her about it 😂😂😂. Clueless

    @cnbcKaren @eschulze9 @GeoffCutmore @netflix @SquawkBoxEurope I never watched ''Friends'', but I now have Netflix after cancelling Foxtel.

  • FomentDiscord John Thomson (@FomentDiscord) reported

    @Loud_Lass Murdoch should be taxed to fix it because he was responsible for the LNP sabotaging it. All to protect his shitty Foxtel

  • bodinp Bodin (@bodinp) reported

    @Telstra Dave, thanks for responding. Please don’t make me do any more work on this without looking in to it first yourself. There is a major outage in Point Cook and it’s 4 days old. No internet, no landline phone, no Foxtel. If you can’t find this information, your company is broken.

  • MB62295311 MB (@MB62295311) reported

    How is adding Netflix to IQ going to help foxtel grow when the price of channel packages is unreasonably high

  • Heels_x Z❤ey (@Heels_x) reported

    @Foxtel whyyyyyy is it so shit and unreliable yet the most expensive streaming service

  • JeskaWillow The Willow Files (@JeskaWillow) reported

    My kid really needs to go to bed so I can watch @cwthe100 already! This new Foxtel schedule is *****! Waiting all day and not watching it with everyone else SUCKS. Live tweeting just isn't the same.
