Which Foxtel Package Is Best For You?

Which Foxtel Package Offers the Best Value for You?

The holiday season is here, use the time to take in some quality entertainment on TV. The free-to-air networks are going on an extended break, replacing all those headline shows with repeats, old movies and the stuff they were too afraid to run during the year. That’s where Foxtel comes to the rescue – they don’t slow down for the holidays, and if it’s entertainment you’re after, there’s over 95 channels of it to be found at the press of a button.

But not everyone’s got the same idea of what’s entertaining – you might be hungry for all the movies you can handle, or you might be the sort of person that prefers a quality drama series. You might find 24-hour-a-day sports to be the perfect way to relax. Or maybe you just want the basics – a selection of channels covering news, drama, lifestyle and the rest. Fortunately, there’s a Foxtel Package or plan that’s tailored to your personal needs, and channel packs that may suit you perfectly. It’s like a restaurant menu for home entertainment, with loads of versatility.

It’s worth mentioning that everyone who subscribes to Foxtel gets the Entertainment Pack as a base – 45 channels encompassing everything from Fox8, BBC UKTV and Universal Channel to classic movies, lifestyle, documentaries, tons of music, news, kid’s channels, sports news and horse racing. The current Christmas offer is a great one, too – free setup, free iQ3 set top box and no lock-in contract of any kind. That’s only going to cost you $25 a month – and you can cancel it any time – but if you’re the sort of person who wants more, it’s time to head over to the web site and take your pick from the packs. Let’s look at some fictional examples using fictional people, to show how versatile Foxtel’s build-it-yourself package creator can be, no matter what type of TV viewer you are:

So Which One Are You?

If you answered “none of the above,” don’t worry – our three fictional people above are just examples. The best thing about Foxtel’s flexibility is that you can customise your service to fit your tastes and your budget, and you’re free to change things around if your needs change. That means you’re getting the best value for your money with the channels that you (and your family) want to watch, without paying for the ones you don’t. It’s a great time to get Foxtel!
