Best of TV From Around the World With Foxtel Now Drama Pack


Foxtel Now Drama pack

Foxtel Now’s Drama pack includes some of the best TV from around the world, all able to be streamed direct to a number of devices. A dream for lovers of drama, these channels will keep you on the edge of your seat.

What do I get in the Foxtel Now Drama Extra pack?

As the name might suggest, drama is a major selling point for this pack. However, the way Foxtel Now’s packages are set up means you will first need to purchase the base Essentials pack (which includes Pop and Lifestyle channels) with the Drama pack as an add-on, and as a result you will also be able to tune into comedies, documentaries, reality TV, and of course, more drama.

What Channels are in the Foxtel Now Drama Pack?

The majority of the channels in this pack actually come from the Essentials pack, with the drama component of the package only including five channels.

  • BBC UKTV
  • Fox One
  • BBC First
  • Fox SciFi
  • Fox Sleuth
  • Universal
  • Fox Crime

Essentials

The majority of the channels you’ll get to choose from come in the base Essentials pack and include Fox Showcase, FOX8, The Comedy Channel, MTV, Fox Funny, Fox Hits, Arena, Lifestyle, Lifestyle Home, Lifestyle Food, E!, TLC, Fox News, Fox Sports News, Sky News, Sky News Weather, Sky News UK, Sky News Extra, CNN, TVSN, Smooth Arts, V, Max, MTV Music, MTV Dance, CMC, Bloomberg, CNBC, and BBC World News.

What are the Top Shows in the Foxtel Now Drama Extra Pack?

Many of the world’s most popular television shows are available in the Foxtel Now Drama Extra pack with the Essentials bundle. Take a look at some of the best of them below:

How Much Does the Foxtel Now Drama Pack Cost?

The Foxtel Now Drama pack is one of the cheaper options available to you. Before you purchase the Drama pack as an add-on, you need to first buy the Essentials pack, which will cost you $25/month. Once you’ve done that, the Drama pack is available for just $10/month extra, for a total of $35/month. With no extra fees on top, that is a small price to pay for a whole lot of great TV.

But what about if you’re on a tight budget and want some more affordable options for your drama viewing? $35/month isn’t too bad for the access you get to shows from networks like HBO – but there’s a lot of options out there that offer even better value for money – as well as shows you can’t see anywhere else. Before you sign up for the $35/month price, take a look at these much cheaper options!

What are the Foxtel Now Streaming Alternatives?

First and foremost on anyone’s list of places to head to for some of the most talked-about drama right now is, of course, streaming giant Netflix. While the world-leading streaming service got its start by streaming shows and movies made by other companies, these days they produce a huge amount of their own content, including some of the most talked-about drama shows on the planet. From the ’80s-set adventure of Stranger Things, the devilishly dark and humorous Lucifer, or the gritty action of Marvel shows like Jessica Jones and Daredevil, there’s something for everyone and it’s all ready to stream on demand. They even have fan favourite Outlander – in 4K!

Netflix starts at $9.99 per month, but if you’re keen to spend even less, Amazon Prime Video might be just what you’re looking for. Featuring original shows like the multi-award-winning Marvelous Mrs Maisel, thrilling action-adventure in Hanna or dark comedy in Good Omens, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into – at only $6.99 a month, or $59 for a whole year.

And if you’re looking for the perfect device to stream everything you can throw at it, the Telstra TV 3 is the one to grab. Available free with Telstra’s current broadband bundles or available to purchase outright, it’s a brilliant little box that also happens to be the perfect way to stream everything from Foxtel Now to Netflix.
