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


Flack

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 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 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 $10.99 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. Then there’s streaming service BINGE offered from $10/month. If you’re a Telstra postpaid consumer, you can get 3 months free subscription and up to nine months more with Telstra Plus Rewards.

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.

Telstra Internet Plans + Bundles

Internet NBN Plans starting from $75p/m with 3 months BINGE. Or, bundle in Entertainment with unlimited NBN 50 and choose a Telstra TV, Xbox or Foxtel from $99p/m. Join Telstra Plus and get loads of FREE entertainment offers.

How to sign up

Signing up to Foxtel Now’s Drama pack is easy. Simply head to the Foxtel Now website, click on ‘Sign Up’, and add the relevant packs to your cart. You’ll first choose the Essentials pack and then the Drama pack in this case, and you’ll be streaming before you know it. If you want to try before you buy, you can take all of the channel packs for a test drive for a full ten days by signing up for the Foxtel Now free trial – which won’t cost you a cent unless you decide to keep streaming after the trial ends.
