Foxtel’s Movie + Drama pack gives you more than enough quality TV and movie action to keep you entertained at all hours of the day. Also including the base Entertainment pack and available in HD, it’s one of the best value plans offered by Foxtel.
Genres in the Movies + Drama Pack
The focus of this pack is relatively clear in the title, but movies + drama isn’t all that it offers. Of course, drama is plentiful in the available channels, while the movies cover a range of genres including comedy, action, thriller, romance and more. What’s more, though, is that you get all the entertainment channels from the base pack to round it out, which includes more comedy, news, documentaries and more, giving you a comprehensive all-around haul of genres to feast on.
Channels in the Movies + Drama Pack
The drama component of this pack isn’t the most comprehensive, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. There are only five drama channels, but with FOX Showcase, Box Sets and BBC First among them, there is plenty of great drama available. For the movie buffs among you, ten movie channels, including Movie Greats, Premiere Movies and Masterpiece Movies, will keep you going.
And then there’s the entertainment component. A huge 45 channels ensures that there’s always something to watch, with the likes of FOX8, Arena, MTV, National Geographic and 111 Funny offering a 24/7 smorgasbord of great TV to enjoy.

Watching Foxtel in 4K
The recent addition of a 4K channel made an already quality Foxtel viewing experience even better. 4K, also known as Ultra HD, uses four times as many pixels as High Definition and 20 times as many as Standard Definition to create a picture like you’ve never seen before. You’ll need an iQ4 box and a 4K compatible TV for it to work, but if that’s you then all you need to do is switch to Channel 444 to watch a range of great sports – including over 40 NRL and AFL games in 2019, the 2019 F1 season and more – as well as TV shows and movies in Ultra High Definition.
