Australia’s biggest cable TV company offers a versatile online alternative in Foxtel Now.
Not everyone who wants to get access to Foxtel can do so easily. If you live in an apartment building with no Foxtel cable or satellite access, for example, you’re out of luck. Fortunately, Foxtel’s got a solution in the form of Foxtel Now – a service which lets you subscribe to Foxtel channel packages and watch them streamed live online (even on your TV, with a compatible device).
Plus, there is tons of content available on demand, in HD, and there’s no waiting around for an install, either. Sign-up is instant and there’s no lock-in contract to tie you down. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Let’s have a look at the juicy details about this extremely handy service.
You don’t need to pay any setup or installation fee to get Foxtel Now
because it’s an entirely different service to the traditional Foxtel cable TV subscription
. You just need to sign up for an account on the Foxtel Now website, enter your credit card details and choose the package or packages that best suit you. You pay for the service on a monthly basis. However, you can change your subscription at any time for the next month’s billing cycle. You can cancel your subscription to the service without incurring any penalty. And best of all, Foxtel Now offers a two-week free trial which includes all the packages, so you can try it out for yourself and decide which ones you want to keep.
To get started, you need to choose your Starter Packs. You can pick between Drama, Pop, Docos, Lifestyle and Kids. Drama and Pop are $15/month each or $25/month both, while the others are $10/month each. This brings the total monthly cost to between $10 and $55. In addition, you can get one or both of the Premium Picks – Movies for $20 or Sports for $29, with the three new English Premier League channels available for $5 each, or for 1c each with the Sports package. Just remember that these premium packs aren’t available without getting at least one Starter Pack. Several base entertainment channels are included with any package (V Hits, Fox News, TVSN, Sky News Live, Sky News Business, Sky News Weather, Fox Sport News.).
