So 9 decided to televise some of it live this year then. Will we see Hotspot return?

Ok so my dumb question of the day is, if you have Foxtel, how do watch Gem?

Hmm my Foxtel doesn't have 209. I have 208 which is Fox8 then jumps to 211 which is ESPN. I see a call being made on Monday.

If the time of the highlights is an issue record the live stage and watch that, or may be highlights available online earlier.

For a minority sport the coverage is pretty good IMHO.

Only cable Foxtel connections repeat the FTA channels. If you have a satellite connection you're out of luck.

New place, and we have satellite. I feel a visit to the parents possibly coming on.

Poor form by Channel 9 in my opinion. Not televising the Criterium today, and highlights at 11pm! They need some advice from SBS...

10.20 pm here in Brisbane and no coverage on nine(supposed to start at 10pm). A rerun of an ashton kutcher movie has more priority :roll:

Is 10pm Adelaide time the same as 10pm Brisbane time?

Useless channel 9. I set to record the TDU and got up early this morning to watch it and it looks like they've had a movie run an hour late. I will now not see the end of the race. You stuff it up every year channel 9.

Yep. Two and a half men ran half an hour in to NSW telecast so I also missed the final 5 laps. Thank god for youtube...no thanks to Channel 9! Friggin' useless!

Cricket finished early, destroyed the schedule...I agree poor form.

Surely the people in the programming room understand that a lot of people record late night sport so it needs to be on at the scheduled time!

Not the case here. We have satellite and watch the FTA channels through foxtel.

I am in the same situation.. My apartment building has an old set up re Foxtel & you cannot therefore run FTA channels through Foxtel. Have to switch to normal TV only to watch ch 7, 9, etc... Then switch back to watch Foxtel... A pain in the arse...
Also, therefore cannot record FTA channels.
According to the Foxtel guy, the only way this is fixed is to get a new satellite or whatever, but that is costly & unlikely to be approved by Strata (I am a renter, so I have zero input)..
So, thanks ch 9... You're shite.

That situation has absolutely nothing to do with Ch 9 and everything to do with your Foxtel service.
