so if i upgrade my iq3 to the newer iq3 i wouldn’t be able to watch fta tv?


the IQ3 and the IQ4 ship with an antenna cable. in the settings of the box you can chose the source for channels that are both FTA and on the sat (you can get them over the antenna or over the satellite)


I had an iQ3 from the get-go and had all my FTA channels from the tuner… so not really sure what your friends had. I now have the iQ4



I don’t know WHY I haven’t bothered to try this before, but I decided to plug my rabbit ears into my iQ3 tonight and see what the EPG to see what comes up.

This is a little odd, it will only bring up the local NBN9 and not Nine Sydney, but I get both Prime 7 and 7 Sydney. And there’s no WIN.

I have to go into the full EPG to get 7two and 7 mate (both versions) as there’s only one 9Go/9Gem and One/Eleven.


If you receive both you can choose between them in Terrestrial Channels > Local Channel Sources. You can also switch been FTA and satellite as well (if the channel is available on satellite in your area and you can tell the difference between the two).



I’ve JUST figured that out, though I don’t get why it will show both Prime 7 and 7 Sydney, but it won’t do that for both 9NBN and Nine Sydney and Ten/WIN.


I got this months bill and i expected it to be higher than normal, given i upgraded 2 IQ boxes to the IQ4. I didn’t expect it to be as high as it was. it turns out they charged me $100 to upgrade the IQ2 to the IQ4, despite promising me on the phone it was $25

I called them up and had to threaten disconnection just to have them look into the matter, as they claimed i got an email that said i would be charged $100 and thats what i will be charged. Anyway I got a call back today (the day after they tried to direct debit my account, but i put a stop to that) and they have advised they listed to the call and have credited me $75


They’re so fucking stingey. I wonder why they’re losing customers. Can they hurry up and go broke already?


No, I need my FOX Sports, at least until live sport can be streamed reliably in full HD to mass audiences and isn’t 30 seconds to 1 minute behind the radio call.


Foxtel used the first portion of $30 million grant by Federal Government to help cover the cost of broadcasting 12 sports in the last financial year: AFL, soccer, rugby union, rugby league, cycling, lawn bowls, surfing, Ironman, surf lifesaving, cricket, basketball and hockey.


Does any one know when Foxtel new 4k channel will start showing 4k content? I thought it may of been October 4th for some reason but it seems that could be wrong. Anyone know?

EDIT: Delany also said AFL and NRL matches would be shown in 4K for the first time from next year, with selected games getting the treatment.


This may or may not sound crazy but with all these new streaming channels launching recently i.e foxflix, fox showcase dose anyone else suspect that foxtel may be leaning towards some sort of streams channel for live sports overflow rather then launching more sat based channels



That article is spot on. $10, maybe $15 is the most I’m prepared to spend.

If Telstra wants to give me a discount or bundle it with my phone, I’m also willing to listen.

$20-$30 won’t work.
