Foxtel Now provides a seamless and inexpensive way to gain access to the Foxtel channels you want without investing in a traditional Foxtel subscription. You simply stream content via the internet to your preferred device and can watch live even when you’re on the go with your smartphone. Yet, some TV events are best enjoyed on the big screen. That’s why we’ve come up with a comprehensive guide that explains all the ways in which you can watch Foxtel Now on TV.
The main advantage of having Foxtel is that you can watch stuff on the big screen without any hassle. You simply turn on your TV and… well, that’s it. Plus, Foxtel offers numerous channels that aren’t available with Foxtel Now, so there’s no doubt that a traditional cable subscription still has its benefits. Not to mention that you get the fancy iQ3 box, which allows you to record up to 345 hours (SD); and you also get access to the Foxtel app to watch on the go.
On the other hand, Foxtel Now wins bonus points for being extremely convenient and costing less. It’s available even in areas where Foxtel isn’t. All you need is a broadband connection. Moreover, the team behind Foxtel Now has been making tremendous efforts recently to add Foxtel Now to more and more devices. Because while some subscribers are perfectly satisfied with watching the latest episode of The Walking Dead on their laptops, others want to experience the show on their big screen TVs. Thankfully, there are several ways to accomplish that.
Watch with the Foxtel Now box
Foxtel has been teasing the release of their own streaming device for some time. Finally, the gadget is here. The Foxtel Now box is available for the very low price of $99. You can purchase it outright from the Foxtel website and enjoy 2 months free of Foxtel Now in the process. It’s an amazing offer that’s hard to refuse. Not only do you get the all the channel packs free for two months (offer available for both new and existing subscribers), but you get a powerful media device that allows you to seamlessly watch content on the big screen.
With the Foxtel Now box, there’s no installation. All you need to do it plug it into your TV and start watching.
