Well I certainly hope so, they needed a good kick up the backside to get the competition ball rolling.

It's just I see a certain arrogance from companies trying to resist change.

they are still arrogant due to the fact they have blackballed sport and they still have alot of people on lockin contracts but give that a few years and thing swill change.

its time for change. time to allow us to select just sport and not have to have bunch of entertainment shit that never sees the light of day

People have been wanting this for years now. I firmly believe the day will come when they are forced to restructure their delivery of these services, people want flexibility and they now have more choice.

The thing is so far people have proven to them that they will pay for the base just to get the sport, so they'll keep it like that

yeah that would be great if i had foxtel solely.
mine ( basic entertainemnt ) was actually forced with the $99 Cable broad band bundle. so at best im guessing i should be able to swing $26
im pretty much getting the basic pack for free so i dont mind as much coughing up $26 for sport

Yeah it seems to be a bit all over the place in terms of what discounts people can get. Good luck!
