How to I get Foxtel Go?
It’s as simple as downloading the free Foxtel Go app from the App Store on your iPhone or iPad, or from the Google Play store on your Android phone or tablet. Sign in with your Foxtel account name and password and you’ll immediately have access to all the channels you get as part of your plan. Alternatively, you can access the Foxtel Go service directly from your desktop or laptop web browser (Google Chrome is recommended) by heading to watch.foxtel.com.au and signing in.
You can register up to five devices to use your account, and watch Foxtel Go on two of them at any time – so the kids can catch up with their shows while you binge Game of Thrones. Those two streams are separate from use of the installed Foxtel service itself, by the way – so a third family member could be checking out their AFL team’s big game on the iQ4 box while those two Foxtel Go streams are playing. It’s incredibly useful – and, as we said, completely free!
