We had initially a STB from SelectTV so we could watch stuff from Chile and Spain, they (Select) start going under so they sold it on to UBIWorld who, after a little over a year shut up shop (voluntary administration) without a single shred of contact to its clients apart from a brief scrolling banner on a Greek channel, something we didn’t have.
Originally TARBS which went bankrupt, it was relaunched as UBIWorld by the TARBS owner’s wife (convenient) and that too has now gone by the wayside. If you are a foreign national but a proud Australian in Australia then you may as well forget seeing programs in your own language as the likes of Foxtel, Austar etc couldn’t give a flying fuck about you, you minority you. The likes of the UBIWorld type companies have no hope in surviving in a country that panders to the multi-nationals e.g. Foxtel as it’s not worth their while to invest in the infrastructure (oops that already exists – silly me).
Oh well back to watching what one must laughingly call FTA TV pfft who gives a flying fuck about ‘the block’ or ‘the voice’ – not fuckin’ me that’s for sure, thankfully I have better things to do!!
