How much does Foxtel Now cost?
Foxtel Now offers monthly subscription packages, so that you’re only paying for the content and services you actually want.
Just last October 2018, Foxtel Now has updated its pricing point and availability of packs. From what originally included five starter channel packs is now limited to one entry pack, which includes the Pop and Lifestyle Pack for $25/month.
From there, you can add any of the three premium packs: Drama ($10/month), Sport ($29/month), and Movies ($20/month). If you want to get your hands on the Kids and Docos packs, better get the All Packs bundle for $104/month.
Entry Pack: The Pop and Lifestyle pack ($25/month) gives you access to the most popular TV shows, including Foxtel originals and hit shows from the US. On top of that, you can also tune in to your favourite reality and lifestyle shows for a discount.
You’ll need to subscribe to the entry pack before you can add on any of these Premium Packs below:
Premium Pack: Drama pack (+$10/month) allows you to expand your drama show options, which would now include shows from BBC, Universal and TV Hits.
Premium Pack: Sport pack (+$29/month) gives you freedom to catch up and tune in to your favourite sporting events whenever and wherever. This is especially useful if you can’t watch the live airing of crucial games.
Premium Pack: Movies pack (+$20/month) is perfect for movie buffs to get access to thousands of movies from Foxtel’s extensive film catalogue.
Still want more? You have the option to get the entry pack, all premium packs, as well as the Kids and Docos packs when you get the All Packs bundle
All Packs: Entry Pack + All Premium Packs + Kids + Docos ($104/month). This gives you everything Foxtel Now has to offer with complete TV packs that the whole family can enjoy.
How much data will Foxtel Now use?
Foxtel Now is a streaming service. So unlike its cable-only sibling, watching it uses data. At the highest quality setting, Foxtel Now will use a maximum of 1.4GB per hour for SD and 3.2GB for High Definition shows. If you’re want to use less data, you can always switch the video quality to “Low” in the Settings menu on the device (not available on Xbox One, or Sony Smart TVs).
The minimum speed needed to watch Foxtel Now is 3Mbps for SD and 7Mbps for HD streaming.
What devices are compatible with Foxtel?
Foxtel Now works with a good variety of devices. It has its own set-top box — the Foxtel Now box — but it also works with Telstra TV, Chromecast, and AirPlay. You can watch Foxtel Now on Chrome and Safari browsers on both PCs and Macs. It also streams through dedicated apps for the Xbox One, PS3, and PS4, as well as selected smart TVs. For mobile viewing, you can get apps for both iOS and Android devices.
