Where to watch the rugby?

Rugbyheaven’s Greg Growden has a snippet (down the column) about the rugby being shunted to Foxports3 as part of the AFL deal.

With most Fox receivers not getting the third sports channel does anyone know which bars will be able to show it?

….and what is Rugby’s agenda BTW? Last I checked it was a sport which, at international level, is also a business. They make money from the deal which, eventually, filters down the line to grassroots level. I see no drama at all.

Unless they have a ‘secret’ agenda

How so JB? FS3 is part of the standard sports package. Moving it to FS3 means bugger all, its 2 spots down on the dial. You can pay to watch it on FS3 at home or not see it at all (except in a pub). I think you’ll find most Fox subscribers do get FS3. If they choose not to get FS3 I’m guessing they’re not interested in sport so no harm done

Foxtel Digital though Lateralis?

Once again Rugby gets used to drive Fox’s agenda and not rugby’s

I have the basic foxtel package and it has fox 3.
As for Growden, most of what come out of his mouth is rubbish. He is just another one eyed NSW supporter. Watch the coverage the Brumbies get when the finals are on and NSW are out. Barely a whisper.

I’ve been informed Fox subscribers got Fox 3 for free as part of the Fox digital upgrade

Huh? I get Fox 3…my subscription is nothing special as far as I’m aware.

Gregan G?

Of equal, if not greater, importance in Growden’s column is his tipping of Fisher for Wallabies coach.

Who would be good to replace Gandalph at the Brumbies?

Last week’s Brumbies game was on Foxsports3 (I think).
-Therefore, go back to the same pub(s) as where you saw it last week.

No Austar in ACT (Foxtel market), but you can get it in Queanbeyan.

But what about Ausstar’s, TranACT’s, etc etc sports packages?

the barn.

Foxtel’s sports package gets you Foxsports 3.
