Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Across 2024, more than 1,000 hours of 4K* content will be available on Kayo Basic including NRL, AFL, Formula 1, Cricket. More specific information will be available closer to launch.

4K streaming on selected content and compatible 4K devices will be enabled for Kayo Basic subscribers in March 2024.

  • a Kayo Basic subscription
  • a device that’s compatible with Kayo and supported for 4K viewing on Kayo

Has anyone received the $15 dollar a month for 12 months discount offer that has to be redeemed by the 2oth Jan?

Can you buy it cheeper at lesser definition?

You can keep the existing price of $25 per month. This gives you one screen and HD only.

Foxtel in the box will eventually become redundant as it is replaced by a combination of Kayo, Binge and Hubbl.

They've made no secret of their intention to sell/float the platform as soon as they can get a decent offer

Modern day punters have it so easy. We used to watch VFA on channel 10 with a black and white pixel haze. I couldn't even tell whether Eddie Melai or Fred Cook had the pill. And that was on a sunny day. And we never complained once.

Not once!

I was going to make a joke about 'and these days they don't even have to deal with polio' but then I realised that the sulky tantrum crowd of modern day punters would have kept both polio and smallpox nicely incubated for a fresh appearance generation after generation, so...

Here's the to 'That'll do, let's get on with it' attitude of the low-resolution era. 🥂

Personally I'd rather pay for a schnitzel at the pub than hand money over to Murdoch anyway! Once you remove free-to-air games, games attended in person, and games I couldn't watch anyway because things are going on, it works out about the same.

I received an offer for $15 off Kayo Basic subscription, which is currently $30 and looks like it will increase to $35 in February (so $20 per month after the Feb increase). According to Kayo this offer is only for returning customers.

Personally I don't care about 4K but would instead rather Kayo get their HD image quality and buffering to an acceptable level. Last year I cancelled Kayo when I saw how much better the 7HD broadcast quality was compared to Kayo not to mention the buffering that would at times make Kayo unwatchable.

Ah yes, nobody ever complained about having to fix the aerial

Nope! Tell me more!

SO i,m a returning customer, I cancel once the footy's over , got an offer about a week & a half ago for $15 off a month for 12 months. Not sure if it's just for retuning customers but just renewed now. It's a fair saving over the year. Maybe check out their website.

Thanks Diamond Jim.

I really wonder if the hardware necessary for 4k warrants the hike but it's not a bad product overall.

Living interstate it's a Godsend.

last i was aware, they didn't use 4k cameras to shoot the game, so it'll be 4k upscaled not true 4k

So it's really 4notoK

I'm outside of proper NBN coverage and on starlink now.

Anyone got feedback on how kayo runs over starlink?

I think the Digital Membership from the club is a great saving on the Kayo subscription.

Many posters on other sites suggest that the Foxtel exclusive games are in native 4k (no upscaling)

Can you get steady download of 40Mbs plus? If so you will get 4k

They suggest 25Mbs. For 1080 it was around 13-15

good points jim

and if your tv is fed by wifi, you can probably double those figures for your isp connection speed if you want trouble free viewing

I'm with Foxtel, Ive got my 85 inch t.v hooked up via ethernet straight into the wall which if your modem is in another room, such as study produces a much better resolution and seamless viewing than Wi Fi. Ive paired the lot up with a Yamaha 5.2.2 system Blockbuster 7750 which literally brings the house down, plus the adjacent neighbours places as well🤣😇🤯😎

It's this drop from 3 down to 2 concurrent streams that will be most significant for many. And I imagine it will go unnoticed by allot of people until round 1 when they all tune in at once and it won't work. 4K is just a smoke screen to distract from a sizable 50% price hike from $11.66 to $17.50 per user

Digital Membership at the moment is $250 and includes KAYO Basic which is the 4K option. Imagine this will increase next year. 

If you signed up to KAYO  for the footy season and then cancel at the end of September you'll be paying $245 (7x$35) if you want the 4K option/2 Stream option.

May as take advantage of the digital membership for those extra months - as you also get that 40% off voucher to use at the Demon Shop (valid for one transaction).

The drop in concurrent streams is a little cheeky those in streaming conglomerates though

85 inch TV! Forget having the modem in another room. If I had an 85 inch TV, half the TV would be in another room!

This "dedicated" home theatre room has been, the kids toy room, junk room, VCE study hub, and now rightfully reclaimed as "The Picket Fence", home cinema "Man Cave." Measuring 6.5 x 4 it is perfect for watching, movies,rock concerts and the mighty Dees winning the footy!😁😜😎

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
