Re: foxtel movies

There was quite a backlash against Foxtel for the changes to the movie channels. While I don't subscribe to them I do think that the genre based channels are a great idea. I particularly like the fact that if we want a 'family/kid-friendly' movie we can get the package that includes a channel specifically for that.

Re: foxtel movies

I was initially against it as there were less channels available than there were before, but we are still paying the same premium price. They have now included a second family and action channel in case you missed it on the first main channels. I still miss some of the other channels and the fact there were 2 x two sets of premier channels (Showcase and Movie Network), now there is only 2 premiere channels.


The main issue however is that there are several movie studios they still have not got access to, I am told they are in negotiations with most said to be back on by the end of February, but one would have thought that getting all the studios available would have been better BEFORE they changed the movie channels
