The Foxtel Plus Bundle gives you a myriad of channels to play with, covering all the various genres included under the broad title of ‘entertainment’. With dozens of options at your command, 24 hours a day, there’ll always be something to keep you entertained.
What do I get in the Foxtel Plus Bundle?
Australians are fortunate enough to have access to great television from around the world – getting the best TV from the US, England, Europe and right here at home. But to fit all that content in, you’ll need more channels than just the basics you get on free-to-air – ands that’s where Foxtel comes in.
With the Foxtel Plus pack’s diverse range of 55 channels of all kinds, this plan is perfect for anyone who likes to turn on the TV and check out what’s on, no matter what mood you’re in.

What are the top shows available on Foxtel Plus
No surprisingly with a name like the Foxtel Plus Bundle, there’s entertainment galore to be found across the huge range of channels that you get. We’ve listed some of the best of it below:
How much does the Foxtel Plus Bundle cost?
Despite the huge range of channels on offer when you purchase the Foxtel Plus Bundle, the price is more than reasonable. For just $49/month on a 12-month contract or month to month, you’ll get all the entertainment you can dream of – though if you want the iQ4 box you will also pay a $100 standard install fee and a $150 equipment fee. Installation and equipment fees are waived if you sign up for 12 months, and if you’ve already got a previous Foxtel satellite installation where you’re connecting, you can order the self-install kit and save both money and time.
Foxtel from Telstra
A better option, then, could be Foxtel from Telstra. One of those times when the name says it all, Foxtel from Telstra is quite literally, the exact same Foxtel service, but billed by Telstra. For a good long while now, there’s been some distinct advantages to getting your Foxtel this way, with real savings to be made with some packages and plans. In the case of the Foxtel Plus combo, the basic option is effectively the same price as what you’d get from Foxtel – $49 with no lock-in contract. But you can get the Sports HD or Movies HD bundles (which include Foxtel Plus) for just a dollar more for the first 12 months – or get both plus Kids channels in the Foxtel Premium bundle for only $70 (also for the first 12 months).
Score more with Foxtel from Telstra
Get Foxtel for less with Foxtel from Telstra. Get sports for $50 per month with Telstra, or $74 per month directly with Foxtel. Save more with Telstra.

Watching in Foxtel HD
If you’re lucky enough to have a big shiny HD television in the living room, you might want to see channels in HD when you possibly can. That’s easy to do with this plan – just add on the optional HD extra, which upgrades a range of channels to full HD for only $10 extra per month. With the Movies HD, Sports HD and Premium bundles, the HD extra is already included at no extra cost.
New Foxtel Voice Remote
One of the best new features added to the Foxtel platform is the new remote control for the acclaimed iQ4 set-top box, which acts as your command centre for all things Foxtel – but now also lets you issue those commands with your voice. You can just press the button and ask it to find movies featuring your favourite actors or directors, and even throw a famous movie quote at it and get exactly what you’re looking for, even if you can’t remember the title. It’s a brilliant addition to a service that has thousands of movies and shows ready to watch on demand, making it easier than ever to find something to watch.
Streaming with Foxtel Go
All Foxtel subscribers get free instant access to Foxtel Go, the phone and tablet app available for both iOS and Android that lets you stream your subscribed channels anywhere, anytime – as well as watch entire seasons of shows on demand.
With a huge range of channels delivering premium sport, drama, documentary and entertainment to millions across Australia, Foxtel’s a must-have for anyone who loves TV. Our in-depth Foxtel review explains why Foxtel’s something you want to have as a key part of your everyday life.
