    Well here it is a SW topic.
    On TFN it has been released that TPM will be shown with the OT on Foxtel sometime this year.
    Of course looking at the ads for free to air nothing has been mentioned, how do you feel about this, do you care.....etc

    well since I got fox I love the idea it means it will be on every day well twice a day actually so it means that I get the perfect excuse to watch more fox and save my videos from being worn out :)

    Don't get pay TV, and don't think we're getting pay TV, so it doesn't really worry me all that much. I'm not one of those people who watches their SW videos over and over and over and over and ove and over and over and over and over........... Get the picture?

    I don't like it-I hate the concept of pay TV isn't there some rule that movies have to be shown free to air first?
    Of course I can watch TPM forever on video but I've seen it already :D

    Ah let's let her watch cricket. It's not as if the Eagles are doing terribly well so far (Go dockers). ;)

    G-O-S, obviosuly not. I've seen too many films advertised on pay TV that haven't seen the light on free-to-air, such as Saving Private Ryan, along with quite a few others. It takes an average of six months before a film gets to free-to-air after it's seen on Foxtel or Optus, and they don't get it until well after the video release.

    G-O-C, thanks for clearing that up, of course the man who owns Foxtel just happens to also own 20th Century Fox-of course that would have NOTHING to do with it ;)

    Guys, be nice to Nat she does support a Grand-Final winning team...East Perth of course.

    Who said that I'm crashing anyone's door to watch the Ashes? WE'RE thinking about gettine Foxtel after my parents get back from their holidays. If we don't, then I crash my friends place to watch the Ashes!!! They'll let me considering we're all obsessed cricket fans!!!

    BTW, I don't care how pathetic the Eagles play this season, cause I'll be still support them. I'm not about to go and become a Dorkers supporter. That'll be branding me a traitor!

    Nice to see a loyal supporter. I've been hassled for years about supporting the Dockers whle they were losing so often. Now the eagles fans get their test of loyalty. We'll see how many fair weather fans there are.

    Hey, I'm still a loyal Eagles supporter and I will keep being a true loyal supporter. At the moment the cricket season is still on, so...

    "Loyalty comes not with how many winning games you see, but how many losing ones."

    It's good to see Nat holding onto the AFL club she supports, already so many others have left.

    I'm a bit of an underdog supporter, so the Dockers are my WA side although my heart lies in local comp.

    Sorry but the Eagles will always be at the top for me. They entered before the Dockers so there the orginal ones.

    Half the reason I started supporting the dockers was because pretty much everyone supported the eagles. I'm more of an underdog supported. Plus I was always a South Freo supporter in the WAFL (it will never be Westar to me).

    Hey soneil, just so you know, the WAFC have changed Westar Rules back to the WAFL. Something about the marketing campaign that didn't work as well as they would have liked...
