Foxtel Broadband Review: Delivering Quality and Affordability?
If an all-in one solution sounds good to you, get your entertainment and broadband needs sorted out.
Cable TV provider Foxtel moved into the internet business when it started offering home broadband subscription bundles – but how do they stack up against the rest? The Foxtel “Bundle” packages combine cable or satellite TV channel subscriptions with home phone line services and high-speed broadband internet, with packages for current subscribers starting at $65/month.

What makes Foxtel Broadband different?
Focussing on bundling a fast broadband service with either a new or existing Foxtel service means Foxtel Broadband is almost a one-stop shop for your connected entertainment needs, whether you’re already a Foxtel TV customer or you’re looking to connect broadband and Foxtel at the same time.
Foxtel from Telstra
Cheapest way to get Foxtel is through Telstra. Start watching the best sport, TV, and movies now.
Foxtel broadband bundles comes in two distinct flavours – one for existing customers and one for those getting Foxtel connected for the first time.
Current Foxtel subscribers can bundle an unlimited-data ADSL broadband or NBN service with unlimited standard local and national calls for $75 a month. At the other end of the spectrum, Foxtel Platinum HD subscribers can get this same offer for only $65.
These costs are the same on both ADSL and NBN packages, with the NBN option offering customers the chance to adjust their speed tier from 50/20 to up to 100/40. This requires an additional payment per month, which depends on the package chosen.
New customers get a similar deal – unlimited downloads, free local and national calls, plus a subscription to Foxtel’s Entertainment Pack. So that’s 45 news, general entertainment, factual, and lifestyle channels for $104 on a 24 month plan. Optionally, for a bit more per month, you can add sports channels, drama channels, or everything Foxtel has to offer.
If you’ve got any questions about signing up with Foxtel Broadband, you can give them a call on 1300 130 799 any time from 9am-7pm Monday-Friday and 10am-6pm Saturdays.
If you’re already a Foxtel customer and you want to get help or support with billing, your plans, or with technical issues, call 131 999 from 9am-7pm Monday-Saturday (billing), 9am to 9pm Monday-Friday and 10am-8pm on weekends (package changes), 7.30am-midnight 7 days a week (Foxtel TV technical help) and any time 24/7 for general broadband and home phone technical support.
