    No more $30 annual digital subscription either.

    In effect the digital subscription has jumped from $30 to $160-200

    Oh for f**ks sake.

    Well done CA. Just spectacular PR in the aftermath of sandpapergate.

    I honestly am struggling to believe they actually did this. What a bunch of complete and utter f**kwits.

    It’s not quite as bad as I presented it there, seems fox are planning to launch a sports only digital subscription.

    But it’ll still be a significant increase if you only like cricket. Admittedly there’ll be access to more matches though, as many overseas tours will now be included.

    The more that comes out about this, the angrier I get at Sutherland.

    He was asked yesterday about how this is legal re: the anti-siphoning laws, and how it can be good for viewers if the first time in history that the Australian team is exclusively on Fox Sports - he kept parroting answers about how they've got womens cricket on free to air in greater numbers than ever before.

    That wasn't the f**king question dickhead, people are furious that they won't be able to watch the Australia Day game without paying for it. You sold us out to Rupert and this will forever be your legacy.

    Yeah cricket Australia have been trotting out this line that there’s more international cricket on FTA than ever before, but when most people hear that they aren’t going to think of women’s cricket.

    Astonishing Sutherland has lasted 17 years.

    Good

    f**k t20, it's a bastardization of 50 over cricket with zero strategy

    You understand that the 50 over cricket is 100% exclusive to Fox, right?

    I have fox for league anyway so it doesn't affect me personally

    Fox sports has a $10 streaming package too from memory

    Its fuelling crickets growth. Wether you personally like it is immaterial.

    There’s no $10 streaming package.

    At this point in time the cheapest way to get fox sports is about $40/month

    There’s talk of a sports only package but I’d be stunned if it was $10/month.

    Could be wrong but I’m pretty sure that’s just access to the premium content on foxsports.com.au

    Yes, the public need to pay the Government a licence fee of around $300 AUD every year just to access FTA broadcasts on a colour TV (or $100 for a black and white set). The licence also covers Pay-TV, online streaming (including BBC iPlayer), recording and playback and many other services. So technically FTA is not so free.
