Austar has joined Foxtel, with Bigger and Better Packages and Deals
Founded in 1994, Austar was an Australian telco until its acquisition by Foxtel in 2012.
Austar is well known for its subscription TV business, but it also offered ISP and mobile phone services.
Austar was the largest subscription television operator dedicated to servicing regional and rural Australia. Austar is now owned by Foxtel, which purchased the company and merged assets.
MyStar Service and Set Top Boxes
All Austar subscribers and its former MyStar online services have now been migrated into Foxtel and Foxtel’s My Account services.
Back in November 2013, Foxtel’s iQ units units were made available via satellite for Austar customers who wanted to swap out their MyStar units. The Austar brand was de-commissioned in 2014.
Austar is now part of the Foxtel Pay TV Subscription Service
