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.
Foxtel Special Offer: Favourites & Kids Packs + Multiscreen for Free
To make life a little bit easier for Australians as they stay home, Foxtel users can access all channels included in the Kids and Favourites packs without needing to subscribe. Those still signed up to Foxtel’s old pricing and packaging can also enjoy greater content with this offer. The Favourites pack has 11 channels including History, Boxsets, Comedy Channel, Fox SciFi, and Crime and Investigation, while the Kids pack offers Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and CBeebies. To enjoy Foxtel on more screens, the Multiscreen feature is also included for free. Foxtel Now subscribers, on the other hand, can access other channel packs — Drama Extra, Kids and Docos — on top of the Essentials pack, also at no extra costs. These changes are effective from 26th March 2020 until 30 June 2020 and also apply to customers who subscribed through Telstra.
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.
