24 hours before Foxtel is set to roll out an expanded service offering Some Foxtel subscribers are facing at least three days without their pay-TV service after Sydney’s weekend dust storms wreaked havoc with services in Sydney’s lower north shore.

Services were cut on Saturday, and subscribers who rang to complain ­ including CDN ­ were yesterday being told they were not expected to be resumed before 5pm Monday.

The outage comes as Foxtel, 50 percent owned by Telstra, plans to begin offering a free download service. Subscribers who register will be able to download programs in the channels to which they subscribe and which they may have missed watching on TV.

Foxtel claims the downloads will be equivalent to its broadcast TV in picture and sound quality. The service will initially be accessible only via Windows PCs, and not Macs, unless the Mac is also running Windows.
