If you want four channels of TV snow sports goodness (and the ability to watch online as well), Foxtel has been happy to charge you $65 for the privilege. But now it turns out some customers are being given the bundle for nothing.
The Australian reports that Foxtel has offered some long-term subscribers free “season passes” to watch its Winter Olympics coverage. Customers who already paid the $65 (or the discount $50 for early bird buyers) will get a refund if they’re selected for the offer. The paper suggests five-year customers are being offered the option, so if you’ve been signed up longer than that and have more than a basic package, it might be worth a quick phone call to Foxtel to ask why you’ve been excluded.
Assuming you don’t qualify and don’t want to pay that (and haven’t coughed up to Telstra for a mobile phone pass), your free options are pretty much limited to watching Channel Nine’s highlights broadcasts each evening. Nine is also offering elements of that catchup package online.
