Set top box upgrades


Have been with Foxtel by Telstra since the introduction of galaxy. Currently have 2 set top boxes.One an iq2 and one a basic silver box that is at least 20 years old with no hdmi connection. 

Rang and asked about the free upgrades and was told I need to go back under a contract. Why?  Been loyal for a very long time and seem to get nothing in return. They offer the world to new customers but seem to forget about loyal existing customers. 

Any body else in the same boat. 

Very disappointed and disgruntled.  

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
