Foxtel Play offers good value to its customers if they know what they want to watch, and have enough time to watch every month. Foxtel Play is complemented by the Foxtel Go app for mobile devices, which allows you to stream all of your subscribed channels on your mobile phone or tablet. The current version of Go is compatible with iPhones, iPods touch, iPads, and a growing range of models of Android phones and tablets. It’s also available via modern PC or Mac web browsers.
Right now, it’s still not possible for subscribers to pick individual channels within the Genre packages at a lower price, but we’re hopeful this option becomes available soon. If you want to use Foxtel Play, you just need to sign up for the package that you want, and then install the Foxtel Play app on your Mac or PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 or 4, recent-model LG, Sony and Samsung smart TVs, or Samsung Blu-ray players. The new Play app supersedes the Foxtel on Xbox services and Foxtel on Internet TV. Subscribers of these services will still have access to Play with only minor changes.
Using the Play app on all types of devices is very simple. You just need to log in once and all your account details are saved. This includes your preferences like a parental control PIN. You can actually choose from a wide range of settings which you can change, but most of them aren’t really necessary if you just want to watch your favourite shows on TV. See how to use Foxtel Play on a variety of Devices.
As for content, there are plenty of great shows and movies available. In Spring 2017, for instance, you can stream A Place to Call Home Season 5, Arrow Season 6, Supergirl Season 3, The Walking Dead Season 8, and more.
