Essentially free Foxtel (any pack) for a month!

From month 2: $26-$137/mth depending on your package choice. Offers apply to online orders only. Offer ends 26-12-2017. Foxtel and some services not available to all homes."

    3 months (and then 2 months of limited channels) was so much better :P

    •  

      Hoping for same to return…..

    •  

      After jb hi-fi (telstra) had their sale free for 3 months, foxtel also ran a promotion free for 3 months for new customers. Which everyone was as the last deal was a Telstra customer. Hehe.

    they're really feeling the competition now!

      What competition? They have a monopoly.

        I think he's referring to the likes of Netflix etc. Certainly cutting into Foxtel's profit.

        I would hazard a guess that the vast majority of Foxtel subscriptions are only for sport these days. Whereas previously it was also good for movies /TV. On demand streaming is killing them.

      Sport. Literally, that's it. That's why I share a Foxtel Now subscription with my brother as it's the only way I can see all the sports that I want.

        Can agree that live sport is a tough one. I'm glad I don't watch sport haha

          Then you save yourself a Foxtel subscription then :-P

          If I couldn't share the sub with my brother, I wouldn't bothering having it either. Only had Foxtel previously with the deal that Spackbace mentioned before. They still have a lot to learn about doing an IPTV package.

      OK, so you're not into sport then. No other alternative for a lot of Australia sport (HD) than Foxtel. This is basically why they still exist at all.

      I wouldn't brag about not paying for anything either, it makes you a pirate. Guess what, if everyone did that, there would be no industry, or the product produced would be rubbish. Don't think you're smarter than anyone else, other's are just more considerate and like to contribute.

        I agree to an extent, but if nobody paid for sport then it would be on FTA TV with ads.

        Yeh, because celebrities and Hollywood in general are running low

      You can keep it for $10/m if you just wanna use it for a pvr with FTA or plan on getting foxtel again in the future.

      •  

        Can you please help with documents/T&Cs around this? And FTA via Foxtel or antenna? Thanks.

    This is a great way to get cable internet installation for free if you are in a Telstra cable and Foxtel area :)

    •  

      This ^

      •  

        What the method of receiving if in only nbn ftn with none of the above?

        •  

          I am not sure, my current cable isn't scheduled to flip over to NBN till 2019 now. If you go here and stick your address in I think it will tell you what you can get, though if in doubt try their live chat and ask them.

          Satellite dish on the roof.

    •  

      That's my plan! We're about to move from one side of a split duplex to the other, and I'll be using this offer to move our HFC NBN and TV antenna points :)

  •  

    i was just talking to them and i asked if i disconnected after 20 days will i be charged, they said "If you wish to disconnect the account once the offer ends you will be required to return the IQ box or you will be charged $300 for unrecovered equipment."

    •  

      Yeah it's easy to return the box, just take it to the post office :)

  •  

    What happens if you have NBN coax? do they split the cable and run a new point?

    •  

      I'm not actually sure. With Foxtel Cable in years gone by they traditionally put a splitter in the external box and run another coax. I suspect little has changed there. Arguably there shouldn't be a reason you couldn't tap off the existing coax run closer to the space in the house but I don't know if there are any signal reflection issues with doing that.

      I would imagine that you could technically attach an NBN NTD to both points, but that you wouldn't be able to sign up for two services at one physical location. That could be something to try out early next year - I have a colleague that lives nearby who is moving soon, so I could grab their NTD and see what happens when both are connected.

      [Edit]: I did some reading and apparently it is entirely possible to have two services at one address. Seems that an NBN tech would attend and put in another interior cable if required, and connect another NTD. Obviously in my case the cabling work wouldn't be required (thanks Foxtel!) but I would assume it would still cost ~$300 - when and if you can buy new NBN HFC services, of course!

      Side note, the NBN tech that came to connect me some months ago was stoked that I'd had Foxtel put in their cable the day before and saved him a job! ;)

    Hi All,

    Now my question is I plan to have Sports+movies+HD. I think they want $85/month after the first month free. So what are my chances by going for this deal then just before the first month ends, call them up and ask to cancel and do you think they will give me any deals? Like $40/month or less? Any chance?

    And would you get the platinum HD then try and negotiate down when cancelling or get the package that you really want to subscribe to first then negotiate that at cancellation call?

    Telstra currently have the same package for $59/month but 12 months contract

    •  

      You can try your luck with that. If you can find the exact same package offered elsewhere for that price, they should be able to match it - not sure if they'll make you sign a minimum contract.

      On another note, make sure you double check inclusions - eg. HD costs more, Foxtel IQ3 costs more, etc.

      I signed up Dec 2016 and had everything included for free for 3 months including an IQ3, and then I dropped down to the packages I want and just pay $56/mth with an IQ3.

        Thanks.
