    @KimKardashian I’ll admit I laugh when I see your advertisement on Australian TV @Foxtel. You say, “I’m rushing home!” There’s two factors, 1. no seat belt and 2. What the actual **** will you achieve in a dilemma (that’s a really big problem).

  • proghurt Proghurt (@proghurt) reported

    Season 2 of @Succession_HBO done, time to cancel @Foxtel sub. Only $ platform with ads before episodes. Sub-par app and streaming experience. Most expensive. Basic subscription is presented as two ‘packs’ but you can’t pick just one so you end up paying for both. Appalling.

  • Simon_Kennedy Simon Kennedy (@Simon_Kennedy) reported from Sydney, State of New South Wales

    I don’t have @SkyNewsAust on at home. Never have. If I did the only reason to watch is saying his goodbyes tonight. @David_Speers - I look forward to watching you at home rather than in a Foxtel equipped hotel room. I’m proud of you mate.

  • JasonSman21 Jason Sman21 (@JasonSman21) reported

    @RalphyHeraldSun Well you guys have been saying the deal is pretty much done for the last few days so if you guys are not making shit up, then that means AFL/Foxtel have told them to wait until it’s live on TV, this will be 1st deal, then a bunch to follow

  • Peacheykeen64 Peachey (@Peacheykeen64) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help you keep assuring yourselves the problem is fixed but it ain’t. Download speed’s pathetic.

  • kevinbertao Kevin (@kevinbertao) reported

    Lol the amount of ads on @Foxtel is ridiculous. I pay a shitload for this and still I get bombarded with ads. Can’t wait to cancel when I move house and just get @kayosports to watch footy.

  • lachie_young Lachie Young (@lachie_young) reported

    Foxtel being installed at the new home on Friday. Watching free-to-air TV in the meantime. Have to say, #BrideAndPrejudiceAU could be the worst thing I’ve ever seen on TV. Surely these people are just really bad actors

  • Auntie_Fran Fran the Radical Centrist🏳️‍🌈🇦🇺🌏🦄♌️ (@Auntie_Fran) reported

    @NickRossTech @Asher_Wolf There is plenty of room to blame Telstra, especially back at the bid stage, but I wouldn't overlook what was the problem in the Abbott government era. My belief is the objective of the change was rescuing Foxtel's soon to be stranded asset by re-using it for HFC.

  • davebrooker322 💧Dave (@davebrooker322) reported

    @LesStonehouse The download on Foxtel can be up to....... wait for it.... a Gb/s I shit you not Dodgy ******* as mate

  • twasink Robert Watkins (@twasink) reported

    Other telcos were able to break out in greenfield developments, but nobody was going back into established suburbs to put in a parallel fibre network to compete with the copper PSTN system. Even Foxtel's cable rollout stopped the instant that Optus announced they were giving up.

  • johnhammer799 Rubbish on the face (@johnhammer799) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help @TalkingTrashTV1 Narrator: It will never return to the schedule.

  • BigV2011WCE Victor Yong (@BigV2011WCE) reported

    @Faziology @Foxtel @FOXSportsAUS @FOXFOOTBALL @ALeague The dour TV ratings doesn’t help at all with the lack of promotion

  • 4beertaps Paul Edwards (@4beertaps) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Brisbane_Roar @IanSyson Maybe. Problem here with sport in general is it is too easy to be an armchair fan as all games end up on tv even on Foxtel etc. In UK no football is allowed to be televised at 3pm Saturday and only a handful of games get on tv. You have to go to games to see your team.

  • heartswochains e (@heartswochains) reported

    after nine years I’m considering cutting off foxtel after hearing abt disney channel’s plans to close down here in australia

  • MichaelBrebrich Michael Brebrich 🇦🇺🇭🇷 (@MichaelBrebrich) reported

    @smh @JennieDuke WTF Telstra didn't want to build it so the then Labor government had to 'go it alone' and do it themselves. Telstra and Foxtel impeded the process and now Telstra claims they could have already done it. Yeah, okay.... I don't believe this revisionist lie.

  • benno_wallace Ben Wallace (@benno_wallace) reported

    I thought the NBL might be in for a strong year with players like LaMelo Ball & Hampton brushing college to play in it & some attention the last few years. NBL didn't even crack Foxtel's top 20 shows, it rated below 26,000. SBS ratings are bad too, Only 1 game has had over 30k

  • Peter217945 magpie (@Peter217945) reported

    @Mike_In_Tomago @Foxtel ESPECIALLY this one. It's driving a lot of us up the wall. I've lost count some days how many times. Saturation for crap. Be ok for something decent.

  • itsrenatak Renata (@itsrenatak) reported

    I noticed in Australia they are always having issues with the my Foxtel TV Guide app on devices.

  • PetalStrike Vanellope von Schweetz (@PetalStrike) reported

    @AKQLD Kayo is Foxtel just sports only. I don’t think it has as much sport content but NRL is all on there and NBA/NBL. Plus no sign up fee so if you wanted pay only for NRL season and cancel and start again next season.

  • pcpinme PCP (@pcpinme) reported

    Complete NBN, Foxtel, Internet cable outage in Forest Lake, Brisbane, QLD.

  • Mattys123 Matt (@Mattys123) reported

    @PossiblyGeorge That's at the top of the pile of shit that. Haven't watched a sdcond but the shorts were enough for me. I stick to foxtel and streaming services now

  • BennyDTD Haasta La Vista (@BennyDTD) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @JackNapier84 @trentslatts I don’t even use Foxtel Go, just basic apps like Words with Friends or my interval timer for being at the gym. It’s annoying as ****.

  • pandmoji Pandmoji (@pandmoji) reported

    @LesStonehouse I can't even get a phone line... Or foxtel... Or stupid nbn... But I can be irradiated with portable WiFi on a 4g network... I don't even know what it means... But I remember the 70s and 80s and 90s and how you could watch telly with a bad antenna

  • marshall23_ Marshall 🐓 (@marshall23_) reported

    So help me @FOXSHOWCASE @Foxtel @FOXTEL_Help if you ************* put #SuccessionHBO on delay again next season I will class action your failing, disrupted, legacy shitcan of an operation into the ******* ground.

  • childhathead Child Hat Head (@childhathead) reported

    @FOXTEL_Help phone centre must be the worst phone service ever tempted to nearly cancel my service because of how hard it it’s, voice service over the phone doesn’t work, now Foxtel even call you to put you on hold

  • Stace8432 Stacey (@Stace8432) reported

    @MJTroyGD I’d never get pay tv again like seriously Foxtel is a rip off it’s just filled with ads and repeat... I cut off Foxtel 5yrs ago once I subscribed to Netflix!!

  • Big_DT23 Dan Turner (@Big_DT23) reported

    @Giovann1z Yea so it's $170 for the season for all 82 Heat games. Plus any playoff games they have. It's not bad. $2 a game if you watch all 82. Compared to $300 for the entire league I got Foxtel. So I'll watch the games they have on for other teams and get league pass 2 watch Miami games

  • TimOnTwtr 💧Tim Nicholas (@TimOnTwtr) reported

    @RiskDiversity @deniseshrivell My hunch - gave Foxtel time to set up its own streaming service. Mission accomplished.

  • bigchefjay jrwalker (@bigchefjay) reported

    @Fox_Motorsport Ridiculous. Bathurst was the first thing shown in 4k when @Foxtel @FOXTEL_Help first launched it, now, they can't find room for it. I think Foxtel is getting worse, not better, and the gap between pricing/service is widening. Also, poor response from Foxtel

  • generalp94 Timmy Patton (@generalp94) reported

    @kayosports_help I spoke too soon. Now the TTV1 app is doing weird things e.g. switching to NBL on demand while watching a live channel. So disappointing. Sports on Foxtel Now work so much better and now the rugby pq is terrible.

  • Dick__Dastardly Reality TV Hater (@Dick__Dastardly) reported

    @porsche91722 @supercars I think the coverage is ok, but I have @Foxtel the ten network certainly limit the coverage. Like you I rarely watch any Australian Motorsport. Be interesting to see the changes over the next five years

  • me57215318 🐘🐓🐎🐪🐬🐠🐼 (@me57215318) reported

    @TziporahMalkah Probably James Packer ran it and decided to put ads on Foxtel to make up for the loss he suffered when Mariah Carey sold the engagement ring he gave her. The poor man has not been the same since and had to admit himself into hospital.

  • tomj437 TeeJay (@tomj437) reported

    @fuzi_logic @FOXTEL_Help @Foxtel Exact problem here too. Apple TV shows up as option but chromecast has disappeared

  • KatDrewer TheMarketingGurl (@KatDrewer) reported

    @Telstra i don’t want to look at a stupid page - i want to know if there is a cable outage in randwick affecting foxtel and internet AGAIN & AGAIN

  • Bruno_Cardi_247 #1 Bruno Cardi Stan 💋 (@Bruno_Cardi_247) reported

    @skinnysel unfortunately my family never had foxtel when it was out 😒 so i never got to watch it

  • itsrenatak Renata (@itsrenatak) reported

    It seems most shows on Foxtel are repeated for a month so people will never miss out but it can be annoying when they have nothing new much on when a lot of kids TV shows here are repeated.

  • couvedm Marna (@couvedm) reported

    Sad. Terrible score. Even sadder those unfortunates who don’t have Foxtel. Thanks ABC. Sydney centric again. What about Melbourne viewers.

  • wild_winnie WildWestWinnie (@wild_winnie) reported

    @Foxtel I canceled my subscription coz u didn’t cancel @AlanJones the nasty hypocritical muppet. So stop contacting me!

  • LYBASkw Adrian Cutts (@LYBASkw) reported

    7 is one week away from going to upfronts with a derailed big red train. If Nine wins next week (and gets that key 20th ratings week win), 7 can only hope for a draw. Also doesn't help 7's position that the mens T20 series with Pakistan/Sri Lanka is Foxtel exclusive.

  • _miichaeljohn Michael Moore (@_miichaeljohn) reported

    @Telstra no reported outage for mobile connection and home internet, home internet and Foxtel are complete my gone, 4G very very slow.

  • TheBowen Chris Bowen (@TheBowen) reported from Darwin, Northern Territory

    @PaulMaric @kayosports @supercars Yep. That’s it. Foxtel Go App has no issues.

  • AussieStoolie Australian Barstool guy (@AussieStoolie) reported

    @Phuzz2 @Vossy7 I don’t have Foxtel, never seen the point of it. Just have Kayo Sports or would go down the pub for big games on days off. But today I’m looking after my little fella so I can’t do that

  • Phuzz2 ClemsonKingsRComing (@Phuzz2) reported

    @AussieStoolie If you have foxsports, you also have access to watch espn site. All college games are streamed. Been using it for. You use your foxtel myaccount login to access

  • hockeydan1 The Great One (@hockeydan1) reported

    @Channel10AU worst Bathurst coverage. Whilst they were talking yesterday on Ch 10 @Foxtel were showing the Toyota86,super Utes,Dunlop series was delayed. At @supercars on Foxtel is the way to go. Ch 10 this morning have delayed by 15min If you want fans to tune in let it be LIVE

  • laura_charlotte Laura Day (@laura_charlotte) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @FOXTEL_Help I’ve got the foxtel now app, but it keeps freezing for a few seconds at a times. It’s really annoying when trying to watch the rugby, or any other program. No issue when steaming from other apps. Help.

  • ChiefHavoChiefh ☔Chief Havoc (@ChiefHavoChiefh) reported

    @SCMarshall130 You must have foxtel. They replay that shit ad nauseum

  • indigohan Little Stranger (@indigohan) reported

    Maybe it’s my generation, but I feel such an acute, personal sense of betrayal when a streaming service starts putting ads before each episode...thanks Foxtel. (I don’t even want to think about YouTube 😐🧐)

  • JayGemstone Jay (@JayGemstone) reported

    @specialkonline Chanel **** Foxtel just download it.

  • thetipsguru thetipsman (@thetipsguru) reported

  • Andycee007 Bond the Dog (@Andycee007) reported

    @thetipsguru @Foxtel @SkyRacingAU it is like using 1 ply toilet paper... no matter what, you still get shit on your hands!

    @Foxtel put the speed down the straight on the screws ASAP #vasc #foxsports @foxsports

  • thetipsguru thetipsman (@thetipsguru) reported

    @Andycee007 @Foxtel @SkyRacingAU and aleague has suffered I see more and more sports have gone down the stream route

  • Andycee007 Bond the Dog (@Andycee007) reported

    @thetipsguru @Foxtel @SkyRacingAU and advertisments... they are dying a slow death, some cable channels in the USA used their current model & lost millions!

    I added up my streaming services cost and got a shock Kayo Foxtel Netflix ATP Tennis Optus Sports Hearts FC TV Chelsea TV Prime A ****** habit would be a lot cheaper and I wouldn't need to watch any of this shit.

  • rdrayto Rodney Drayton (@rdrayto) reported

    @Telstra C’mon! Cable outage for more than 24hrs in CARLINGFORD!! No internet, no cable, no Foxtel!

  • Gazzman62 Garry Davies (@Gazzman62) reported

    @BacheloretteAU Seriously who watches this crap stop putting this garbage on twitter and wake up free to air television putting on lifestyle programs like this. Thank god for foxtel, stan and netflix.

  • toddjt92 Todd (@toddjt92) reported

    @pittworldwide Cannot wait to watch it in a month. Annoyed Foxtel never got to fast-track!

    @TheFootballSack @FOXFOOTBALL Had the same problem watching via the Foxtel Go app on my tablet over my NBN broadband connection.
