Aside from expensive basic pricing and questionable programming choices, one of the more common complaints about Foxtel is that it forces you to sign up to a contract. Right now, Foxtel is offering contract-free pay-as-you-go signup, but there are still a few catches.
The deal is only running until November 12, and applies if you sign up to one of Foxtel's Value packages. Those start at $77 for the most basic pack, which doesn't include sport (the major reason many people sign up for pay TV). You'll also have to pay a $100 install fee. Does that make standard Foxtel more tempting, or would you prefer an alternative such as FetchTV or Foxtel via Xbox? Tell us in the comments.
