the fact that Netflix cant have all the content, means people need to have multiple subscriptions to watch the shows they want. it gets costly.
If people cant download stuff ISPS may see people reducing internet packages as well.
Reason i dont have foxtel and watch afl is due to the cost and that i only want to watch footy channel not the other crap. Plus Essendong usually have a good number of games on free to air tv.
so I have the AFL season pass, and watch on ipad, since cant stream to tv this year will only watch essendon games on it.
I have a web tunnel ($6 a month) get US netflix ($6/month) and AFL app on my ipad ($15/month).
It's heaps. Add that to ABC Ivew and SBS/ch7/9/10 internet catchup services and it's plenty.
I'll never pay rupert murdoch for foxtel since he stopped australia getting proper NBN, NEVER
