I looked into that because I have a xbox they force you to purchase another extra package which bumps the price up to $70-$80 a month
I just did it (didnt pay, just until confirming the order) and it came upto $50? $25 for a mandatory 'Entertainment' package, then another $25 for the additional sports package.
Maybe it's a zone thing?
But yes they have a free 14 day trial on atm.
with the byo device eg xbox can you record foxtel?
Don't know about xbox, I'm assuming you could re-route the console output to your PC/MAC and capture it that way.. but if your BYO device was your computer it would be easier as there are heaps of 3rd party apps to capture streaming media/Foxtel
