Pay TV offers tremendous entertainment value for your money. However, there's no reason to overpay for pay TV given the extraordinary number of great deals available in Australia.
When you look for pay TV deals, you need to consider contract length, the number of TV channels you'll receive, any additional hardware that comes with the package and other factors that could change your year-to-year costs.

You'll need to decide whether a DVR, which allows you to easily record shows and pause live TV, is worth the extra cost of a high-channel plan. Your goal is to get the channels and features that you want at a price that you can afford.
 

Most pay TV deals come through Foxtel, but new ADSL2+ networks offer independent sets of channels in regional areas. Because ADSL2+ networks are not available in every part of Australia, their channel selection is limited when compared with standard HFC cable TV.
 

Optus, Neighborhood Cable and Austur are Australia's main HFC cable providers outside of Foxtel. Australian cable providers often have bundled deals that offer pay TV with broadband Internet access, which can save some households over the long term.
 

Australia also has several Internet television services through IPTV, which offer a more limited but exclusive set of content. Foxtel's IQ2 platform, for instance, offers many of the provider's channels through home Internet devices like the Xbox 360. Broadband Internet providers like TransACT also have digital TV services that entertain thousands of Australian customers.
 

The PwC media report suggests that more than 25 percent of Australians will subscribe to some form of IPTV over the next four years. IPTV can offer a large amount of specialized content, and foreign language speakers and hobbyists will find a tremendous selection of unique programs on the IPTV platform over the next several years.
