There is so much to see on free to air tv, I am not sure why you would want pay tv unless for a specific reason, maybe a sporting channel. With a dual tuner recorder you can record up to four shows at once, two of them having to be from the same network. Marvellous.
And it only gets better. Have a look at what SBS2 is about to do. It is to be renamed rather oddly as SBS Viceland.
Andrew at televisionau.com has published a programme guide for the first week of SBS Viceland. If you read the post, you will understand why the channel is called Viceland.
