Re: Removing a channel from Foxtel with Telstra Package

I would assume it was initially in place as certain bundles included certain packs and had to have those in as a minimum... but the new ones are more flexible so I can only assume it is partially just legacy system limitations (because people will still be on those) or a technical limitation because as far as most things go getting people to do things via self-service is their preference.

Re: Removing a channel from Foxtel with Telstra Package

Hi brepen,


Thanks for reaching out, DrQ is correct in advising the need to call is due to some packages needing a minimum. To avoid disruption to services and/or packages, a phone call is required if components are being removed.
