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.
These include five starter channel packs – Pop, Drama, Docos, Lifestyle, and Kids – and two premium channel packs. You only need to subscribe to the ones you really want in order to enjoy the service.
The Drama and Pop packs ($15/month each) offer you access to acclaimed Foxtel TV shows and allow you to never miss an episode of your favourite series ever again. You can pick one or subscribe to both for a discount.
The Docos, Lifestyle, and Kids packs ($10/month each) all come with several focused channels that will suit your interests perfectly.
There are two Premium packs – Sport ($29/month) and Movies ($20/month). The first one is a must for sport enthusiasts who want to watch all the action live, while the second pack is a great addition for every movie buff out there. You can only get these packs if you’re already subscribed to a starter pack
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.Read the full Foxtel Now review
