With multiple movie channels running 24 hours a day, Foxtel has a lot of airtime to fill with movies – and as a result, their movies library for on-demand viewing is huge, with the occasional blockbusters sharing space with a veritable history of modern cinema, and in April, there’s something for just about every taste. The movies that are available on demand can be accessed also on Foxtel Now, formerly known as Foxtel Play. We dug into the catalogue to come up with ten movies well worth clicking the “play” button on.
