Wow, really? I thought Fox Sports 1 at least was still in the basic package. It's hyper-commercialised insanity. I hear rugby's now been relegated to Fox Sports 3, meaning you need to fork out shitloads.

What I think Foxtel don't realise is that they're losing customers this way. They could be getting $10-12 out of me per month. They could've been getting that for 2.5 years now. Instead, due to poor business models, they're gotten absolutely zilch and will continue to get absolutely zilch.

Well I assume Foxtel and Austar are virtually the same, maybe they just have diffrent titles for their packages.

The Sports Package Includes: Fox Sports 1,2 & 3....Then I believe if you want ESPN (which I would, just for the NBA....maybe some Champions League).....its part of an extra package with The Comedy Channel ect ect...)...I mean C'mon, its a fucking sports channel too!

Oh, fuck, you are kidding me. Turns out the rugby tonight is actually in Sydney, not Melbourne. So it wasn't delayed to try to get people to go to the game. It was just delayed because apparently Channel 7 thinks more Victorians want to watch the Fucking Vicar of Fuckley than rugby union.

Fuck off.

And now Paulini to sing Advance Australia Fair. Fuck off too!

God, Paulini oversung the anthem something shocking. Glad I'm not Australian.

Though as of tomorrow, I'll have spent exactly half my life here.

Ooh, so radio?

I don't even know if I have anything in this house that will actually successfully play the radio. My clock-radio works fine as a clock, but not as a radio, heh.

I'd prefer to have lived over half my life in New Zealand though!

Ah well, I love Melbourne too. Wish nine years hadn't been spent in Queensland ...

Ah, right. I imagine the next time I listen to the radio will be when U2 are doing some sort of promo gig. Remember back in 2004?
