Everything was perfect except the access to digital channels. I’m an afl fan & while afl matches provided coverage of afl games, they didn’t have that particular channel. The games were also broadcast on free to air 7 mate, and it constantly dropped out & there was no sound, I think they need to add an extra digital channel to provide coverage of our national game.
