Ever since it left Fox I just haven't bothered
Mate suggestion is to get onto Optus Sport now while it is being almost given away because of recent sins.
If you can get them to send out a Fetch TV Box for free then all the better.
The fact it was switched to Optus wasn't the reason I backed off last season - just had other stuff to do.
There is a plausible scenario that in (say) 5 years time you will get unlimited data delivered to your house over 5G wireless and the content providers will be Telstra and Optus.
In amongst all the bad news about soccer and Optus, and Telstra profit warnings, both companies have a long term strategy to deliver more content direct, or to get a slice of content advertising revenue.
Ever since "the internet" became about, the Service Providers (Telstra and Optus in Australia, and companies like Sprint in the US) have been right royally screwed by the Content Providers (Google, Facebook, etc).
What has happened is that there has been a lot of consolidation of Service Providers because of the low margins and the SPs realize that they need advertising revenue to grow. The Content Providers will be forced to reduce margin or take over the Service Providers - the latter highly likely.
Those people that have dumped their Telstra shares (I am one) should keep a close eye on the share price and get in if it keeps going down. They have some really nascent valuable assets with the 5G spectrum they bought off the Federal Govt. last year top of the list.
