great stuff thanks for the post
The free movie channels don't seem to work on Foxtel Go. Is everyone experiencing this?
Correct. Not on iPad for whatever reason.
Excellent, I am on the 6 Month EOFYS offer. Total for 6 months including installation(waved) and equipment for most channels except movies and sport for $260.00(total) which I paid upfront; so now I get the movies too. Excellent; thanks!
How did u get installation & equipment waived? Did you get "entertainment lovers"?
I signed up for the EOFYS deal but it was for 3 months free access for a 6 month contract.
Still paid for equipment & installation.
I just asked the lady; she waved the Installation but I had to pay the equipment.
I just checked my papers. Had installation waived too (but had exisiting connection - previous owners). What package did you get? Entertainment lovers?
@Moots: I think you mean waived :)
Lol no, it doesn't quite work like that… your still getting an SD signal, just through the hdmi cable.
I highly suggest you get your Foxtel GO account setup; I have it on my iPad streaming from my hotspot (Galaxy S3) with Kogan. Works great; hardly ever lags and is in HD.
Great for being at a friends house, or studying.
Problem is I do not have an iPad.
Doesn't work on my iPhone… :(
Works on both my iPhone and iPad, can mirror to a TV with an apple TV too.
How do you get it to mirror? I've tried, and it only mirrors the sound from the app & no picture.
You can't mirror with foxtel go. If you JB your ipad I think there is a way to mirror ipad while foxtel go is running. I'm going to try this next JB that is released.
HD video streaming from your mobile connection!? dude your data would be dead pretty damn quick! (Just checked and Kogan mobile gives 6GB per month at max 400MB per day)

Thanks, I've updated the link
Is it automatically applied? I just can't see any details on that webpage.
Never mind saw the link above :)
Read the OP's description —''
Hope this includes Foxtel on Xbox 360.
Thanks! Strange how as a longtime customer, I don't get an email telling me! :)
nor did i
i've only been with them for 11 years, maybe i don't qualify? lol
wow. Didn't think Choice would be advocating this.
Yea, thought it was strange. I use http://hola.org/ on Chrome as Firefox is my main surfing one. It's aweosme
Other than live sports, I think I've maybe watched an hour of Foxtel since I got a Netflix subscription about a month ago!
plus from me!!!
I just ditched Foxtel after 10+ years as we rarely watch it these days, it's always repeats and re-runs. I probably would have stuck on for one more month if I saw this deal before …
Two words… Live sport. Without it they wouldn't sell Foxtel to anyone.
I'm with you in spirit. I feel like ditching it. I subscribed to the full sports package with one extra room (standard digital) for $120 a month (a bargain apparently - even though I don't have movies I have IQHD). I can't remember the last time I watched live sport…
Anyone know from when they have done this before - can we record loads of movies to iQ and watch them still after this promotion? Or do they self destruct like the Box Office movies?
The recorded movies should still work after the free period is over - I still have a few unwatched ones from the last promotion!
Thanks for that. So…. stock up is the way to go then…
Good to know, thanks heaps.
didn't work for me last time around :S
Movies should be part of the base package in some format, even if it's just one channel.
And they should not be playing tv shows like SOA and game of thrones on channeld in the movie package
Does this include Foxfooty? There's been a lot of drama on there lately.
this is also for austar customers
has anyone got it on yet, its not working yet here.
It starts on the the 7th of July…
lol what a idiot i am i looked at my watch back to front.
I'm currently on their $10 'FTA-only' plan; I wonder if I'll get this?
I think my plan is only available if you ring up and try to cancel your account. I don't watch Foxtel much during the off-season of the EPL/A-League, so I bump down to the $10 plan until it starts up again.
What is FTA-only stand for? What does it include?
Free to air!
Thanks, makes sense now.
NOT FOR XBOX FOXTEL?
I don't have the channels.. perhaps because I cancelled the movie channels effective the 1st of this month? I didn't get the email, so perhaps this is not for all Foxtel customers, just those who haven't taken up the new package yet..
"From July 7"
Yeah, my mistake. After installing Windows 8.1 I have the U.S. date format, and I got the 7 confused as the day when it is really the month..
So will this work with foxtel go?
I don't know why I got negged for asking this?
Anyway, its not working on my ipad this morning.
It's not working on my iPad either. Any news? (I gave you 2 + btw. Dunno why people would neg a genuine question.)
Not working for foxtel on xbox 360. Not that I expected anything less than this from them, oh well.
Only the SD channels are viewable?
I switched from Sports to Movies on July 5 while the EPL season is off. So if I'd done nothing I would have had both through July?
This only works with movie channels, hearing complaints that the HD channels are not working for myself included!! Bit disappointed foxtel
Thank you! HD Movie Channels 219 to 226 are working for me now :)
Same yay! I watched a movie the other night for the first time in ages. It was Hysteria and I quite enjoyed it.
It seems to also work on my Optus featuring FOXTEL digital service
I wrote an email re no HD movie channels and they replied that it was now fixed which it was. Not sure if they fixed everyone at once but only those who complained.
