  1. Already sick of self promoting adds for upcoming shows, seeming a lot like the tennis wall to wall adds. It will only get worse with big bash coverage.
    Foxtel for me, great coverage – love come in spinner.

  2. Yet to see anything listed on 7Food that I would consider watching…but I do frequently watch SBS Food 33….usually if there is nothing else I want to watch…or just want relaxing TV…
    News…I watch TEN news..but not all the time…like the presenters and the weather guy, Tim….then I turn to Nine…which I watch almost every night…

  3. This time last year the test cricket on 9 was getting more than twice the viewing audience that 7 are attracting now. Guess Foxtel are taking a big chunk of the audience. Not surprising as Foxtel’s cricket coverage is amazingly good.

  4. My husband I saw really struggling with the seven cricket commentary. He’d rather listen to the cricket on abc radio. Sadly the vision on seven is a ball or so behind what’s on the radio. It’s all a bit sad really.

    • The noise on Seven’s audio that roars in between words is very annoying. I guess it’s supposed to be “creating atmosphere” but it would be better without it…please. Yes, tried ABC radio too.
