With Netflix, Stan and Presto now firmly established in the Australian streaming market, we have more options than ever to legally watch the TV shows that our country has long had a reputation for pirating.

Hey Lifehacker, Now that the real football season has come to an end (“soccer” as most folk here call it), I am looking at my options for the upcoming season. I subscribed to Foxtel Play fit to get my EPL, Championship and A-League fix, but I’m not particularly keen on paying for a bunch of additional channels that I will never watch.
When Telstra relaunched its Mobile Foxtel TV-channels-on-your-phone product last week, we noted that its limit of 30 minutes viewing a day and 200 total minutes viewing a month rendered it a terrible and pointless product. After we mentioned that, Telstra told us it never intended those restrictions to be included, and it has now altered the terms and conditions so that viewing via its Android and iOS apps isn’t subject to limits.
Telstra has tweaked its Mobile Foxtel TV-to-smartphone offering several times in recent years, but it remains something of a niche offering. The latest “relaunch” makes some tweaks to the service, but there’s still a nasty sting in the conditions which makes it essentially impossible to recommend.
