What are the specifics of your situation pls? Did you get them in the past, for example? What Foxtel package do you have? Could you please include your state, and whether you get your Foxtel from Telstra by satellite, or cable.

Edited as answers to questions will help with solution

Re: Free to Air on Foxtel

whether or not you get free to air channels via Foxtel satellite depends on your physical location and the contractual arrangements that exist between Foxtel and the FTA networks for your area

Re: Free to Air on Foxtel

Hey ruster85 

 

In WA, using Foxtel by Satellite it isn't possible to get Free to Air channels other than: 

SBS ONE, SBS TWO, ABC1, ABC2, ABC3

 

We aren't able to retransmit the other channels. 

 

It depends on your location, and how you receive your Foxtel from Telstra service as to which channels we are able to retransmit to you

Re: Free to Air on Foxtel

Hi there
Can anyone tell me why I can't get foxtell free to air at NSW 2264 but my friend can get it at 2259 and it's less than 2km away.
It can't be geographical from satellite for that short distance.
