  1. If it has on demand episodes of the prime time shows then I’ll subscribe. I’m already a Foxtel Go subscriber (satellite not available due to trees where I am) but most of the good shows are on at awkward times and the clips available on Fox’s website are rarely full interviews. Most shows do end up illegally on YouTube and Fox have seemingly allowed that to continue…perhaps they’ve seen the viewer stats of the dodgy YouTube videos and realised there is a market out here for legitimate access to programming.

    Good to see Fox Business will be available too, as it has been missed since disappearing from Foxtel when Your Money closed.

    1. CNN, MSNBC and other mainstream news organisation have their equal share of fake news too. In fact recent surveys have shown the majority of US viewers don’t trust the mainstream media at all. So choose ur poison basically.

  2. Why would they think anyone else in the world would want to watch their Fox fake news? It’s the most discredited ‘news’ service in the world. They really are deluded.
