  1. Ridiculous that Foxtel can’t show grand final or state of origin live.
    Of course these are major events and should be available on free to air tv, but why cant Foxtel also show as well?
    Bathurst was shown on both Foxtel and fre to air! Should be same for NRL and AFL. we are not talking huge nubers of viewers so why not allow it?

      • RightWingConservative

        Not quite. The anti-siphoning law requires free to air TV to get first dibs at the rights to the NRL Grand Final, but it doesn’t prevent a simulcast. The thing preventing the simulcast is that Nine paid for exclusive live rights. Fox can (and will) show a replay starting shortly after the final whistle.
