    Woohoo got in before JV!

        Still should include price

        Wrong product Shibster

        • What's the difference between Now and Play? I can't see any, just a rebranding?

        • @czd:

          They are re branding Foxtel Play into Now and changing a few features.
          More emphasis on (Hopefully HD) on-demand streaming from my understanding.

          New interface and they are bringing HD streaming to more devices (Finally. Previously only Telstra TV had HD)

          @swimmingtoad:

          And most importantly removing channels. Foxtel is a joke.

        • +1

          @PainToad: How kind of them. Some things never change.

  • Some reason the link is not work it is launching tomorrow try this one in the meantime they haven't updated their website completely yet
    From what I can see it is $104 with all packaged
    https://www.foxtel.com.au/now/about.html

    I will update post once Foxtel has finished changing their site over

  • +1

    no Apple TV ?

    • nope… still no Apple TV. Some things never change with dowdy old Foxtel.

      • -1

        Funny, I see Apple TV users as being dowdy and old.

  • +7

    Until they stop forcing me to bundle crap I'll never watch just to get the sports pack, I'll keep my wallet closed.

    • +6

      Until they allow me to record, I will never sign back up. Zero point paying to watch US, when you can't record it and it's not uploaded to on demand.

      Fun fact Foxtel, people work, they can't take time off work just to watch sport when it suits your scheduling.

      Man I hope people buy these just to install Kodi. The irony will be great.

    don't waste your time, almost everything is in SD… doesn't work on the majority of devices,

    you really are just better off using streaming pirated services or stick with Netflix, they even make it difficult to cancel (the button doesnt work in firefox and chrome…. and only sometimes in IE)

    oh, this is a streamingservice for 10 bucks a month, I wouldn't even give them that

    FoxtelNow

    http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/foxtel-unveils-its-n...

    Foxtel Now, which launches tomorrow, will be available on PC/Mac via the Google Chrome browser, Telstra TV, iOS and Android mobiles and tablets, and Chromecast.

    so basically they have invested zero dollars, its going to be just as terrible as Play…. and still supports zero devices

    • no way will it only be $10 a month, unless you are happy with say the kids pack and zero else.

  • whats the advantage of this over normal Foxtel.?
    It seems to be the same price except you dont have the benefits of a non-streaming service (not having to think about data use/speed etc and HD will work on any screen not just the selected devices they choose)

    • No installation. It streams through an app over the internet.

      • I know it streams, but thats not an advantage. HD is via selected limited devices only (telstra TV and Chromecast).

        • It is an advantage if you are unable to get installation or don't want a month-to-month contract.

    • whats the advantage of this over normal Foxtel.?

      Can easily share your account with 2 simultaneous streams (meaning sports can be had for under $20 a month), and most of the popular shows / sports are available on Anytime within around 1 to 8 hours after being shown "live" if you miss it.

    • It's cheaper

      • +1

        $104 per month isn't super cheap though.

        • +1

          The Platinum HD package (everything) via Telstra on a month-to-month contract is $99/month. However, after the first 12 months discount it rolls onto $137/month if you don't cancel. Cancel at the end of your 12 months and the full Foxtel Package plus free IQ3 box and free install is still cheaper

  • Do I have to put in credit card details? I assume I do.

  • +1

    Fingers crossed the new app allows subscription via Google play. The only way id pay for this is using my Telstra credit.

  • Whats the min cost for live HD sport?

    • $44

    • +2

      $39 a month, or $29 a month for 3 months with the free Pop deal (use code TELPRESBOH10):

      • Currently pay $65 on satellite… trying to work out if it's worth saving $26

        • Do you or the family watch any other channels though, check what channels are dropped if you go streaming.

        • I'm currently on satellite and pay $36.00 p/m for HD sport.

          Contact Foxtel 131999 and say "Disconnection" into IVR.

          Request the above deal.

        • @chupa chup:

          Satellite, had 3 months free platinum package. now paying $65 a month for sports, kids and HD

        • @Danstar: I also got the first three months free. Good deal over the six months…. Kinda.

  • I just signed up for this yesterday to watch Champions trophy and the quality has been pretty good. My internet is quite slow and the stream continues with dropped quality. It is bit expensive though at $40/month for just sports channel and movies.

    • Are the Fox Sports channels in HD mate? Specially the cricket? Is that in HD - 720p or 1080p? When I last had Foxtel Play the fox sports channels were in a very low res, quite unwatchable tbh!

      • Just signed up for the trial. I can confirm overall the stream quality is much better than it was on Foxtel Play. Can't confirm the resolution though, but I guess it's somewhere between 720p and 1080p.

        And yes, the cricket (ICC Champions Trophy) on FoxSport (507) looks very sharp and clear, very good quality.

      • The quality is quite good. I am only watching it on my 12" laptop and my internet is quite slow. I am not sure if it's HD or not.

  • Foxtel will never beat the real streaming services… They are the same price for less content and they still have adds.. Even less content now then before… they make a big deal about rebranding play and it is on all the new services, but read the fine print…

    From 5 June 2017, BoxSets, 13th Street, Binge, Syfy, Discovery Science, Animal Planet, Lifestyle You, Style, World Movies, CNN, Smooth, BBC World News, CNBC, Max, CMC, Eurosport News, Foxtel Arts, MTV Music and MTV Dance will no longer be available on Foxtel Play.

    • +1

      True, But only if you don't place any value on live sport.

      Availability of AFL means that Foxtel beats the real streaming services in our house.

  • Is the APP on the Play Store?

  • Thanks - was planning on getting foxtel for a month to watch the lions tour

  • Cannot locate FoxtelPlay in Google Play store anymore, looks like FoxtelNow is a direct replacement of FoxtelPlay…

    FoxtelNow won't run if your mobile is rooted. not sure about FoxtelPlay as I've never installed it before.

    • Foxtel Play was never in the Play Store. It was (still is) called Foxtel Go.

      Getting around the root block is easy with Magisk.

      • Can you please elaborate? My device is rooted, so Foxtel doesn't work. I can't find an app called "Magisk"
