Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

What TV you rocking Picket?

Will be picking up a 65' OLED this year hopefully. 

We got an 85" Samsung last year on a great deal. It is awesome. (Up from a 50").

Just a little more...

If you use the AFL club package to renew you will get the Basic package ie 4K.. two screens for 12 months.

How long this continues will be interesting but if it's anything like the deal they did for Telstra customers I'd expect it to run for 2024. Then it will increase in price in 2025.

I went from the Telstra deal to the club membership when the price rose. Very happy with the digital membership option, hope it continues to be a great deal.

19 hours ago, whatwhat say what said:

those are some big tvs

i went from 40" to 55" and thought it was HUGE

mind you, half the time when i'm watching footy on the box i'm on my 27" computer screen as apparently i'm 'too loud' to be amongst company

IMAX for me.

I just stand two inches from it.

While not about the Kayo experience this article about where Craig Tiley is trying to take the AO from a spectator viewpoint gives you some idea of future stadium trends. (Like cruise ships it's all about the upsell)

Spectators attending the Australian Open will soon be welcomed to Melbourne Park not by security personnel and bag checks but by a stream of push notifications about their seats and favourite food - which will be delivered to them by drone.

That is Tennis Australia chief executive Craig Tiley’s near-term vision for the “happy slam”, which under his stewardship has evolved from a tennis tournament to an entertainment destination where up to 40 per cent of visitors do not watch a game.

I’m not particularly TV/tech savvy but I am curious;

- are any FTA games on any channels broadcast in 4K or just HD on the HD channels?

- is our forward entry any better in 4K?

As of 2023, the 3 or so channel 7 games per week can been seen on Foxtel's 4K sports channel if you have a 4K compatible TV. I doubt you can watch 4K on channel 7, just HD.

A resounding no to question 2.

Really missing footy.

Almost tempted to get my kayo sub early just to watch some replays.

But times are a little tough so have to wait.

Interesting price increase given the cost of living and interest rates( npi) 

I wonder if attendance will be down this year?

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

PayTV in Australia is an unmitigated disaster. Foxtel would be lucky to be worth AUD2B. Between Murdoch and Telstra, at least AUD100B has been flushed down the toilet over 27 odd years. Technically, it's a catastrophic. Former republics of the USSR have significantly superior technology and services than good ol' Australia. What an embarrassment that the AFL sell their soul to this pimple on the backside of the entertainment industry.

I was waiting, but no one did, so I will.

 

What is 4K.?

Sorry, I can't help but would like to know too.

I'd like to ditch Poxtel but the internet coverage here is [censored] - 14mbps, so I doubt it's enough for Kao and whatever 4k is.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution

Regular high definition displays have approximately 2000 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high. 4K displays have approximately 4000 by 2160 pixels, or 4 pixels for every one pixel on a regular HD display. More pixels means more detail in the displayed image.

This is helpful on large displays. E.g. an 80 inch TV is something like 180 cm wide. If HD, every pixel is approximately a millimetre square, so if you are close to the screen you may be able to make out the individual pixels. In 4K those pixels would be approximately half a millimetre square.

Everyone joining the Giants?

I got a Demons Digital Membership even if I have Carlton Home Game Membership. An additional $19 saving not enough to entice me, rather give some money to the Dees.

If we see an upturn in GWS memberships this year, it might be Kayo fuelled 😁

Attendances might actually go up. In tougher economic times, people often turn to cheaper forms of discretionary expenditure (meaning, cheaper for them than what they might have previously been spending). So, attending AFL games might be cheaper than alternatives whether that's international travel, attending more expensive sporting events such as the F1, skipping the opera or foregoing that new tattoo.

Foxtel just released its pricing for the traditional "box" set up as from 1 Feb 2024.

It's a monthly charge of  $70 plus $30 for the sports package.

Some online posters are suggesting that Foxtel are setting up for another Kayo rise in 2025.

Would you pay $50 per month for Sports via Kayo (4K .. 2 screens.. no password sharing {Netflix mode})

This comment was made by the Foxtel CEO on subscribers via the traditional box set up.

Patrick Delaney, boss of Foxtel, in December to shareholders: "We haven't been running it for subscriber numbers for a long time. It, by and large, is older Australians that are wealthy... we'll continue to squeeze as much revenue out as possible"

I’m currently on $39 for Foxtel Plus and $25 for Sports HD. Big increase.

Will have to balance the cost of living, or the Kayo buffering + a very unhappy partner!!

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
