  1. Best day? Not at all. We now have zero coverage unless we sign into a sub par product with a provider I dont want to be with.

    Cant wait to invite my mates over to my house where I cant get optus reception to watch the game on my phone. Or to watch it on a non available Optus Internet connection in HD as I have for years.

    Worst decision ever

  2. Its about time prime time football was back on free-to-air. Foxtel have had a monopoly on the game particularly the English Premier League for some years now. The day Foxsports lost the EPL rights was the best day ever for football fans in this country.
