although 9 says the loss was due to a one-off writedown.
Commercial FTA seems to be buggered.

I don't use either, but I still hardly watch the commercial
channels. Probably once a week or less.

ISP's are now directed to block them. Might drive some back to FTA. I
doubt they will all suddenly want to pay Netflix or Foxtel, or pay for a
good enough VPN as well as their ISP charges.
At least FTA is still FREE.

Or know to point their DNS lookups somewhere other than at their ISP,
given than the ISPs can comply with the court order just by tweaking
their name servers.

You can bet Village Roadshow and the others who started this, will be
pushing for that to soon be fixed if they find ISP's are simply doing
that and people are using a free DNS server. I guess we will see.

I don't know if it's come into effect yet, but it's not working here either.

And it never will ;-)

What happens when the latest legal restrictions occur?
Just VPNs and site name changes?
Do VPNs waste data?

Not significantly, but you're limited by the bandwidth of the VPN
provider (shared with other VPN users), which can mean you get a much
lower transfer rate than if you connected directly.

They made a good profit and simply wrote down the value of their license
because they could.

Rubbish. Although the way they are run, they are certainly trying.

Yes. They, like the print media, are the past.

Looks like CBS will show them how to make money.

Will CBS just use it as a way to funnel their shows into our market?

Probably, but how will that be any different to what we have now? I'm
betting Ch.Ten sees a marked improvement. Can't get any worse at least!

Ha ha, if they can get rid of tripe such as The Project then we will be
better off. What will Peter Heliar do when that happens?

Who cares! Can't say I've ever watched it more than a few minutes since
it began. About the only thing I ever watch on TEN is the F1 and MotoGP.
Hopefully they might have something else worth watching soon.
