How much does Foxtel cost?

Foxtel operates on subscription packages, so that you’re only paying for the content and services you actually want.

The base pack is the Entertainment Pack ($26/month). This includes the basic Foxtel service, plus 45 basic channels — including Fox8, MTV, Arena, Discovery, Disney Junior, CNN, Sky News, and Fox Sports News. Every Foxtel subscriber gets this package of channels — you can’t opt out of this channel pack.

On top of this, you can then add the packages that appeal to you.

The Sport Pack (+ $29/month) gives you Foxtel’s twelve dedicated sports channels.

The Movies Pack (+ $20/month) adds nine movie channels Premiere and World Movies.

The Drama Pack (+$20/month) adds six drama-focused channels, including Showcase (AKA“The Channel with Game of Thrones”).

The Box Sets” channel (+$10/month) lets you watch full seasons of shows, like True Blood and The Walking Dead.

Entertainment Plus, Docos and Kids Packs all add more high-quality channel choices in those categories for $10 each.

The upgrade to HD is only $10/month extra. If you’ve got a modern HDTV, you will be wanting this for the best possible picture quality.

How much data will Foxtel use?

Foxtel’s traditional cable and satellite pay TV services do not use broadband data. Instead, they transmit your shows directly to your iQ3 set top box.

However, the Foxtel streaming app does use data. On the Low setting, the app will use a maximum between 320mb – 435 mb per hour of viewing. On the High setting, the maximum amount of data used is between 920mb – 1325mb per hour of viewing. This data usage is unmetered with Foxtel Broadband when connected at home.

What devices are compatible with Foxtel?

Foxtel streams its programming to its iQ3 set top boxes, which are installed in your home. These connect to your TV and let you watch, record and browse your channel listings from the comfort of your own home. The free Foxtel App is available on iOS, Android, PCs and Macs.

Foxtel FAQs

With over three decades of service under its belt, Foxtel knows a thing or two about providing high-quality content on your big-screen TV at home. No matter what sort of TV you’ve got, your iQ3 set top box will get you watching what you want. For the huge number of households that have a TV with an HDMI input, it’s just a matter of setting up the iQ3 and plugging it in.
Foxtel’s traditional cable and satellite pay TV services do not use the internet to provide their pay TV and on-demand streaming services. Instead, they transmit your shows directly to your iQ3 set top box via a cable or satellite connection.

However, if you want to watch remotely, you need to use the Foxtel app. This does use data. On the Low setting, the app will use a maximum between 320MB – 435MB per hour of viewing. On the High setting, the maximum amount of data used is between 920MB – 1325MB per hour of viewing. So you need to make sure that your mobile data plan or home broadband package has the data you need to stream freely. This data usage is unmetered with Foxtel Broadband when connected at home.

For the traditional Foxtel experience, it’s necessary to have a cable or satellite connection installed. You can access your subscription remotely using the Foxtel app. If you don’t want to go through the process of installing a cable or a satellite to watch Foxtel you can still access Foxtel’s subscription packs online with Foxtel Now.
