    Re the darts...
    I believe so, but not recordable, and often Live in the wee hours. I honestly don't know flexible Kayo is for finding what you want and streaming replays (I think it's limited to 2.5 hours rewind? where I may not watch until days later), but anyway "the darts" was my attempted humour :) , as we watch and record heaps of stuff on Foxtel

    You hit the sport button, choose your sport and you're presented with replays of all events in that sport. A few popular ones went back to November atm. So around 2 months worth. Rowing had stuff from May, tennis only this year.

    edit: correct about the 2.5hours rewind for the live channels.

    Anyone have the updated remote? Is it worth it? They offered it to me last year for half price, but thought they should probably give it to me free : p

    Did "Retentions" call you to try and keep you?

    No but was transferred to them when they refused to offer me a deal and he didn't try very hard to keep me on :(

    you may still get a call back, or have you returned the box already?

    Too late for call back, my account has been closed, final bill issued and foxbox got dropped @ Po yesterday.
    Its all over, been a customer for close to 10 years.
    Most likely will go ant me a fetch box :)

    It's quite hit and miss and you can understand why given the number of customers they have. I see many people over at WP try to call their bluff until the very last day and they get no call back from retentions.....disconnected next day :lol:

    Doing my Foxtel dance today.
    Was on – Foxtel Plus (with Sports HD and Favourites included) + Multiscreen for $65/month. Sports was then ditched from the 'inclusion list' – no communication from Foxtel. Finally Favourites was ditched. Price sky rocketed to $105/month. Not happy. There's no way I can warrant that kind of price. Best they could do on Live Chat was 50% off sport. Will call disconnections later today.
    Particaurly now that they've lost Rugby Union to Stan, and more shows are switching to Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services - it doesn't justify those crazy prices.

    Yeah, I do this straight off the bat these days. Live Chat etc is a waste of time for negotiation

    I think I'm on the previous package names, but you should be able to negotiate the equiv of HD, Sport, Ent, Ent Plus and Drama for $68. Trade off any optionals for Multiroom for similar price.

    Update. Called disconnections this arvo. Best they could offer was the same thing, but for $86/m. Said "nope, disconnect me". Assumed I'd get the whole ring around and they'd come back and match what I was on. Nope. Started processing my disconnection and boom. Done. Disconnects in March. Still could get a call from retentions team, as many of whirlpool have got, but so surprised they didn't fight at all. Crazy.

    still recommending Box #3 to customers who insist on having one.

    I like that Foxtel phone support is squirming now that they don't know if CBD customers can use the IQ3 or 4... get a new TV folks... it's just an App now.

    some people just feel the need to record stuff, even if its free to watch online on YouTube.

    I'm guessing iQ3 rather than iQ4. Both have been fine for me, but I prefer iQ4.

    Doesn't sound that great to me. Plus I already have Netflix so no deal. I don't think it's really that much of a saving either.
