  1. Perhaps FreeTV could have focused their lobbying efforts here rather then ridiculous scare campaign about app placement and remote buttons.

  2. This is a very sad day for Australian cricket — the t20 World Cup, cricket world cup and the world test championship being shoved under a paywall for the next few years.
