With Foxtel Now’s Movie pack, you can get access to the hottest movies from around the globe on-demand. Boasting a range of movies covering all genres, there’s something to keep everyone happy in this package.
What do I get in the Foxtel Now Movies Pack?
Unsurprisingly, the main focus of this pack is movies, but this in itself is not sufficient to cover the range of available genres. There’s the latest blockbusters, family movies, action and adventure, comedies, thrillers – you name it, this pack has got it. And on top of that, the way Foxtel Now structure their packages means you will also need to get the base Essentials pack (formerly known as the Pop and Lifestyle pack), giving you access to great docos, reality, comedies, drama and more.
What Channels are in the Foxtel Now Movies Pack?
There’s no shortage of options if you’re looking to settle into a film thanks to the wide range of available channels with Foxtel Now. You can tune into the classics with Movies Hits and Movies Greats, the latest Hollywood blockbusters with Movies Premiere, heart-stoppers with Movies Action and Movies Thriller, and much more. And of course, if nothing airing live on these channels tickles your fancy, head to the Foxtel Now movies library and stream whatever you like on-demand.
Fox Showcase, FOX8, Comedy Central, 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, Boxsets, Bloomberg Television, BBC World News, and CNBC.
