    sweet jesus, just realised not all games will be live on SBS.

    anyone know if Optus is offering a WC package or is it only their standard set up?

    Optus are having every WC game i believe, probs worth paying for it while its on. Best thing is being able to watch on demand.

    Was checking this last nite.

    You can get a no contract $200 setup plus $80 for 1 month with fetch box.

    If not on current contract with broadband you can hop out of your current broadband then bounce back in a month later. is a hassle but gets you the gig. Also getting hooked up a day or 2 before is a risk spesh if theres delays. you can cut out before the semis & final as they on SBS

    hope optass lose this sh1t.

    There may be a sweetened deal just before but not holding breath

    I'd say they will offer a special deal. Makes too much business sense not to.

    Imagine having a huge takeup for 6 weeks or whatever. Conservative estimates would assume around a 30% retention rate. Better having cash in your coffers for a month, with potential for long-term subscribers once they are in.

    My only issue with the potential for a special deal closer to kickoff is that it may be unlikely due to people signing up for 2 year contracts under the impression it was the only way they could watch.

    Looks like Iíll just have to book a trip to Russia.

    So forgetting the every one hates Optus line let's bag them angle

    Are the WC tv rights meant to be on FTA and the FTA stations have neglected to take them up as part of the anti siphoning they get first crack at them or has something changed here

    I know Les had a lot of pull at SBS and him going will see their interest in football diminish but I surprised the other FTA stations have not shown interest

    If that eventuates, they'll probably credit those early adopters with a month's fees for the World Cup. Easy fix

    Yeah it was always my I
    Preston that the WC was on the anti siphoning list, but maybe thereís a loophole that means only Oz games within the tournament are protected?

    Iím sure Cricket and rugby WCís are all now pay tv owned aside from Aussie games yeah?

    SBS has 25 of the 64 games and that is more than previous yrs gone. Yes the anti siphon laws were needed to get those. fta hasnt had them for yrs. other fta stations are bogan retards and cgaf unless ratings rise with miminal ca$h outlay.

    We are stuck with Optass until they find it all too hard and fox picks it back up again.

    btw SBS has all 64 games on radio in an ethnic voice so Plague cancel the tix!!!

    I was no fazed (h/t Biraz) because Iím sure Sky NZ has it and I am subscribed to them to watch EPL


    But

    About 2 weeks ago my account is now geo blocked and I canít watch EPL.

    Canít work it out (neither can my VPN support) but Iím locked out.

    Maybe the yanks have something I can sign up for online? Anyone use their services?

    Nah, I’ve reached a point in my life that unless I can see ALL the football I’m moving into a Timezone that makes it possible.

    Spent the 2014 group stage in Vegas Which seemed like a ripper idea until the 48 degree heat and copious amounts of decent quality cocaine turned up.

    as for radio? How do they describe the hot Sth American birds the cameraman always finds during the games?

    I don’t want to ‘hear’ titties.

    I actually did consider ****ing off to Thailand for the WC as the timezone be much more beneficial for watching games

    It was one thing I did enjoy when I left Brazil for Argentina and Chile

    Watching the games in the arvo early evening

    Made for a great time being able to pull in to a bar and watch the games at a reasonable hour

    Only problem is that the 3 hour time difference ain't going to make it much better for us really plus I think I would get Shitfaced every night and not see much of it
