Foxtel migrating all Cable TV customers to Satellite

Trevor Long at EFTM writes about Foxtel migrating all Cable TV customers to Satellite to free up capacity for NBN services delivered over HFC.

I’m not really surprised by this. When I moved into a brand new apartment in North Sydney at the beginning of last year and had my Foxtel service relocated I was surprised to find out that it would be delivered over Satellite despite being in an area covered by HFC.

Despite having Foxtel for most of the time since first connecting it in 1996, I cancelled my service this week. I don’t get a lot of time to watch TV these days, so I prefer to watch content on Netflix and Stan which doesn’t show advertisements for approximately 25% of the time.
