With that in mind, we think it's worth revisiting the original court documents that reveal the sites, services and URLs that Foxtel and Village Roadshow are seeking to block in Australia. Here is the full list along with the reasoning behind the ban.

Offline viewing. It's something millions of Netflix fans have been clamoring for ever since the DVD mailing company ventured into online streaming back in 2007. Almost ten years later, the big wigs in Los Gatos, California have finally heard us.
Today, Netflix customers will be able to download select movies and TV shows in addition to streaming over the internet. The feature is available worldwide and comes at no extra cost.

Foxtel has just launched itself head-first into the 21st century. The long-time cable subscription telly business has started offering its triple-play broadband, TV and home phone bundle packages to customers covered by the national broadband network (NBN). It will also let customers on existing ADSL plans to transition to the NBN without having to re-jig their contracts. However, pricing remains a sore point, with Foxtel's NBN packages costing up to $240 a month.
