If there is anyone else who has simialr problem, I'd be interested to know.
I've pre-paid for the whole year and am getting pretty sick of being fobbed off with rubbish excuses.
Also, anyone know if there is a legitimate service (ie, not one like the criminal AFL/Bigpond operation which seems to take money and not deliver what you pay for) where I can buy a replay of a single game from last round? I was able to find the southern cross channel on the link mentioned above, it says that the channel is offline. And they did, but it was on i Pad, which was 99% of time great AFLTV is the only product that allows you to watch every minute of every game, from anywhere in the world (excluding Australia and NZ). Also given that the start of the season is pretty close and there's still no details whatsoever (quality? Looks like the official AFL TV is up: the 2012 GF is anything to go by, quality is pretty poor...
I was able to find the southern cross channel on the link mentioned above, it says that the channel is offline. In 2013 each of the 405 AFL games will be available live or on demand via your desktop, tablet and mobile. no HD which is disappointing but at 0/yr for all games it's not too expensive. The real test will be the NAB cup, which is free so you can kind of trial the service that way. EDIT: Here's the subscriptions for those interested.
For about 10 days now, most of the replays newly posted onto their website do not work (live streaming seems to work and older replays also work).
They acknowledge there is a problem, but several enquiries have elicited useless replies ("we are in touch with our site team","we hope the the problem will be fixed in 36 hours" etc).
However with the depth of content available each round, either Live or as a full match replay or highlights, you will be able to access the best offer for any club you happen to support in the most convenient way.
In terms of the quality of content and the audio – I can understand your concerns.
Currently the 2012 Grand Final is archived footage from a previous supplier and we're confident that we can improve the encoding for this season.
Now, they have even started failing to deliver replays – They failed to deliver Hawthorn v Gold Coast and Hawthorn v Collingwood (which I still haven't seen, so please do not spoil the results).
I have now written to them requesting an escalation of my dispute, because this service level is unacceptable. I want to get rid of foxtel and need to know if this is an ok substitute.
