Notice Regarding Foxtel

February 25, 2021

Ladies and gentlemen,

After a great deal of internal discussion, Forestville RSL Club has decided to cease our subscription to FOXTEL, until further notice. There were a number of factors that led to this decision, not least of which is that the existing service costs the club almost $60,000 per year.  There is also an urgent upgrade needed to our current Audio-Visual (AV) system, which is old and sub-standard. Finally, the on-going uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and how it affects club revenues was another significant issue. When all of these points were considered we opted for the cancellation of FOXTEL and an AV upgrade.

How will this decision affect you in the club? Yes, there will be changes but the club will still provide vision of the majority of your favourite sports events. You will still be able to watch live, FridayNight and Sunday afternoon NRL. You will still see State of Origin, live. You will still see the cricket. You will still be able to watch the Wallabies play.  We will also be screening featured content from the U.S. in the form of NFL (Gridiron), NBA (Basketball) and MLB (Baseball).  

What’s next? These changes will take effect from 1st March 2021.  If you have any questions about this impending change, please feel free to contact the Club.
