Cheapest I have seen so far in last few months. Most probably you should be able to price match

With the Foxtel Now box, there's no installation - just plug into your TV and start watching.
Through one simple device, you can access Foxtel Now, free-to-air TV , a world of apps and games from the Google Play Store, YouTube and Stan (subscription required). Also, comes with Chromecast built-in.

    Can it play Netflix at 4k?

    •  

      Last I read Netflix and Prime not available on these. Got the Voda TV if you are after something like this

      •  

        Thanks I already have a vodafone tv for my main tv was wondering if I could get this for a second tv I have upstairs. Not worth it if I can't play Netflix.

          get another vodafone tv.

          It's pretty simple to install Netflix on these but you have to do it manually (with a File Manager app) rather than from the Play Store. I can't confirm 4K or otherwise.

    •  

      It can't officially play Netflix - that may change at some stage though as Foxtel and Netflix have done a deal together, will be bringing Netflix to the Foxtel iQ4.

    Any idea if the fta channels are through a antennae cable or over the net? Can't seem to find a coaxial input in the pictures.

      From https://www.foxtel.com.au/now/box.html:

      "The Foxtel Now box comes with a built in free-to-air tuner^ so you can watch all your available local channels when your aerial is connected."

    •  

      Yes it does, but unlike the Fetch box (for example), it needs to be connected to the internet or it wont work.
      Not the best option out there, but cheap I guess.

    •  

      FTA requires antenna cable, and yes the box has a coaxial input. However, you can also use apps for major FTA channels (7,9,Ten,SBS,ABC) which all stream live content.

    •  

      Coaxial input - I found it fine for SD channels though HD channels would often freeze and only work after changing channels and changing back. Really not a great user experience.

    VODATV for $15 more is 10x better even just for netflix and FTA

    •  

      Have never used the Vodafone TV, though I am confident that you are right. Can just sideload the Foxtel launcher if you want to use Foxtel Now.

  •  

    Is there extra monthly subscriptions fees with foxtel ? Or I can just plug in and watch all the foxtel channels?

  •  

    This deal is finished no add to cart button

  •  

    Agree that Voda TV is better, but hate the remote - cheaply built with annoying clicking sounds. Only good thing is the blutooth connection, dont need to aim at the box to make any changes.

    •  

      Also don't like that remote - clicking sucks. Everything else about the Voda is good.

      Can you sideload Foxtel on the Voda or need to go via Kodi add-on?

    This thing is a piece of crap

  •  

    I've never owned any extra box(ie apple tv, voda, shield) If you never had a box before for all these extra free channels, what would you get??? I currently own a Hisense p7, so it has netflix, you tube etc I also have the sports Hd foxtel deal from last year. Thx

      Should have better performance than your smart tv, that's about it

      •  

        often a newer and better version of the FTA apps as well. In some cases the app support stopped dead for my smart tv (hisense, i think it runs on opera)
