Foxtels New IQ3 will be launched in February 2015


Foxtel finally confirmed the launch date and pricing of its new set-top box, the IQ3

Formally announced in march 2013, the IQ3 will finally be available to Foxtel’s customers in February 2015. “The IQ3 will be the most advanced set-top box available and will provide a revolutionary new way to enjoy the best that Foxtel has to offer.” Affirmed Foxtel CEO Richard Freudenstein few months ago.

The launching date was confirmed in email sent to customers yesterday: “We know that you’ve been waiting patiently to get your hands on the iQ3, so we just wanted to let you know where it’s at. You’ll be excited to hear that we’re finishing up a few final details and it’s on track to arrive in February 2015”

According to Foxtel, the iQ3 will have ten times the processing power and eight times more memory than the current box.

It will have more functionality and features for a better user experience:

1-terabyte hard drive, and includes nine satellite or cable TV tuners built in, allowing customers to watch one show while they record up to four others.

To get the iQ3 Box, customers will have to pay a $150 upgrade fee. Also make sure you compare Foxtel Packages and evaluate if their full offering is for you.
