Foxtel – Premium Entertainment in a Bundle

Whether you’re looking for the best in general entertainment, premium drama or the most extensive coverage of elite sport from around the globe, Foxtel is the place where you’re going to find it. And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to get Foxtel into your home, either – just look at the current plans for Australia’s premium TV service, tailor it exactly to your needs, and take advantage of some offers that are hard to turn down.

For the past few decades, Foxtel has been a key part of Australia’s TV landscape, and in recent years it’s expanded massively as the range of entertainment on offer around the world – from TV drama to sport to reality TV to lifestyle shows – has gotten larger and larger. The Foxtel of today is much larger, more diverse and more technologically advanced than ever before, bringing in premium entertainment, sport, news and events from around the world on dozens of channels.

If it’s the latest season of Game of Thrones, Outlander or Westworld that you’re craving, you’ll only find it on Foxtel, thanks to the unrivalled library of the Fox Showcase channel. If you’re wanting to see the very latest in lifestyle and reality shows, you’ll find them in the Foxtel TV guide as well – alongside live coverage of major events like the Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. And if you’re into all things sport, whether it’s the best of live Cricket in Australia or domestic and international Rugby, you’ve got a feast of 15 channels to explore, delivering high definition coverage of almost every sporting code under the sun, from all around Australia and every corner of the globe.

And all these channels are delivered to you on one of the most advanced set top boxes seen to date – the powerful iQ4, which not only makes the process of watching and recording your shows effortless, but also opens up access to the next stage of live satellite sports broadcasting – 4K.

The IQ4

When Foxtel introduced the first in its series of iQ boxes, the landscape of pay TV was changed forever – now, it was possible to effortlessly record shows, sports and movies simply by hitting a single button rather than manually programming in times. The first iQ was a fairly basic device by modern standards, but it was soon followed by the iQ HD and then the iQ2 (still in use by many today) and the ground breaking iQ3 with its graphical user interface and advanced features. The long legacy of IQ set top boxes has been behind the latest in the series – the powerful, advanced iQ4.

This brand new Foxtel iQ box looks similar to its predecessor, but under the hood is some serious power, making the experience effortless whether you’re watching and recording live TV, streaming the thousands of hours of on-demand content available to Foxtel subscribers, or enjoying the new Foxtel 4K channel – the first broadcast 4K TV channel in Australia.

It’s the iQ4 that’s key to the new Foxtel experience, which seamlessly melds broadcast channels with high quality streaming – to the point where you can start watching a show live and finish it via on-demand streaming whenever you like. Recordings can be set for single episodes or entire series from the Foxtel web site or one of the phone and tablet apps, making sure you never miss a show.

The Foxtel Streaming Experience

A key part of Foxtel packs, like Drama and Movies, is the access you get to on-demand streaming of a vast library of content – all included with your subscription, available to stream in HD directly from your iQ4 box, or if you prefer, on your phone, tablet, PC or Mac. Foxtel Go is a comprehensive on-demand streaming service which allows you to catch whatever it is that you love to watch on your own terms. Automatically included in your Foxtel subscription, the Foxtel Go app lets you register multiple streaming devices and watch on two of them at the same time – and all this in High Definition.

And speaking of devices – the catch-up service is available on plenty of them. Not only can you tune into your favourite movies, shows and sport on your Mac or PC, but you get even more flexibility with the ability to stream to your mobile. If you’ve got an iOS device with iOS 9.35 or above, or an Android device with Android 5 or above, your train ride to work is about to get a whole lot easier.

What’s more, Foxtel recently revamped what was an already robust on-demand service to make it even more appealing as a destination to browse and discover new movies and shows. Now, FoxFlicks and Fox Showcase have their own homes on the iQ4 with their own constantly updated content – as well as curated playlists spanning multiple genres and moods.

Browsing content on FoxFlicks or Fox Showcase, you can choose to stream immediately, download to watch any time in the next month, or set a recording for an upcoming broadcast – and all those options are part of the same interface. If you don’t have a fast broadband connection, the download option will be especially appealing, since once the download is done you can play back full HD to your TV without worrying about buffering.

Connections

For most new subscribers, Foxtel will be installed as a satellite service – which, thanks to the satellite-only iQ4 and 4K channel, is easily the best option. While Foxtel started out as a service delivered by cable in areas that had access – and still is for some long-term subscribers – the satellite service allows a vast amount of people across the entire country to have access to high quality, high definition channels – and the new 4K channel shows just how capable satellite can be. We’re guessing more 4K channels are on the way, too – but in the meantime, satellite is the only way you can watch live 4K television in Australia without any buffering or quality loss, guaranteed.

Installation costs are always a factor, especially when Foxtel has to put a satellite dish on your roof and wire it up inside your home, but even that’s less of an issue with some of the above plans – the installation cost is credited back to you so you don’t pay a cent, as long as you stay connected for the entire 12-month contract.

The Plans

When you’re looking to get connected to Foxtel, you have a choice between two options – Foxtel themselves, and Foxtel From Telstra. It might seem a little confusing, since Telstra is a part-owner of Foxtel – the main difference is simply that with Foxtel From Telstra, as the name suggests, you’ll be billed for your service by Telstra rather than Foxtel. That can turn out to be incredibly convenient, too – allowing you to add your Foxtel subscription to your existing Telstra bill, for example.

The actual Foxtel service you get, regardless of which you choose, is identical – the channel packs, the iQ4 box and everything else are the same. But by opting for one over the other, you can get some surprisingly great value on the plan of your choice.

The current offers that Foxtel From Telstra has are even better than usual from a value point of view; the caveat is that to get the full value out of them, you need to stay signed up for a full 12 months. If you’re up for the commitment, though, you’ll get a free iQ4 box (or iQ2 if you prefer) and free installation alongside some pretty amazing prices. These plans are only available to new subscribers, by the way.

Entertainment + Movies Pass

This is a hard one to say no to. For a very affordable monthly price, you get the base Foxtel entertainment channel pack – 45 channels of everything from news to lifestyle to drama – and the movies pack. This set of ten channels is just incredible for the movie fan – there’s dedicated channels for action, romance and comedy movies, as well as channels for critically acclaimed films (Masterpiece) and first-release stuff (Premiere). All of it is also available to stream on demand as part of the FoxFlicks experience on the iQ4 – which also adds a range of world movies not shown on the broadcast channels at all. It’s an absolute bargain if the idea of sitting down to flick between multiple channels of 24/7 movies appeals to you.

Entertainment + Sport

With this pack, you get the base 45 channels plus access to Australia’s definitive source of all things sport – 15 channels of it, covering live sport ranging from AFL and NRL to A-League soccer and championship surfing. There’s the extensive ESPN coverage of all things American, like baseball, NBA and NFL. There’s beIN Sports’ coverage of European football. And there’s the brand-new Fox Cricket channel, giving you direct access to the best in cricket in Australia and worldwide. Add HD to this pack for an extra $10 per month and you also get access to the new Foxtel 4K channel, with Australia’s first live broadcasts of cricket in 4K resolution.

Entertainment + Drama

This pack gives you the base Foxtel channel pack once again, plus access to the premium drama channels that everyone’s going to be keeping a close eye on during 2019, as Game of Thrones returns. But it’s not just that show that’s attention-grabbing – Fox Showcase, the centrepiece of this channel pack, has access to all of HBO’s shows, so you’ll see the new Big Little Lies and Westworld as soon as they screen in the US. And if you miss anything, or forget to record it, it’s all streamable on demand in the Fox Showcase section on your iQ4.

Is It Worth It?

We’ve all got so many more options for stuff to watch these days, that’s for sure – but some of the best content around is exclusive to Foxtel, whether that’s premium drama or live sports. That used to be the point where people complained about the price but, with the deals that are going around these days, it’s surprisingly cheap to just point your TV at that satellite and save some money while you’re doing it.

Foxtel: Discover a World of Premium TV Live and On Demand

Nearly half of all Australian homes now have Foxtel bringing a whole planet’s worth of entertainment to their lounge rooms, giving them access to the largest range of drama, comedy, sport, and entertainment around. If you’re not in one of those homes, you’re missing out on a lot.
